    I'm suffering from mild jet-lag, oh well, might as well do something 'useful'. Here are 4 squares I have, all silk, taken from 4 different brands: Turnbull, Hermes, RL, and Charvet. Â All their edges are different. From top to bottom: Turnbull, Hermes, RL, Charvet --> [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Turnbull has the thinnest roll, while the other three have similar thickness in their roll, Hermes being the thickest. Â In terms of straightness in the rolled edges, Hermes and Charvet are quite straight, RL the most wobbly, almost zig-zagging. Â The hardness of the roll is also different. Â Though Hermes has the thickest roll, it is not hard; while RL's feel harder and tougher. Â Turnbull and Charvet both feel similarly soft but substantial. Â The direction of the roll are consistant among Turnbull, RL and Charvet --- rolled towards the backside of the silk, while Hermes is rolled inwards on the upside of the silk. As a result, you see little pick-stitching stitches on the three but not on the Hermes. These are very tiny details. Â There is no good or bad in any of them, just a matter of preference. Â They all stay in very good conditions even after years of use. Naturlaut
