    I've never got a Drake's tie, or indeed any other, with so much packaging. What about the environment?

    Nice tie though.

    Thank you, Leon. The box will probably be used as a doll's bed or something. My two-and-a-half-year-old is quite resourceful.

    ^ Nice! I just purchased a few Drake's cashmere ties from Will at A Suitable Wardrobe.

    Does Will have an online store or do you just drop him a line?

    I'd say just drop him a line and tell him you're interested in the Drake's striped cashmere ties. Feel free to forward him my post. The photos were pulled from his site.

    apropos - really nice stuff. I'm off to Europe next month and will hopefully have luck half as good. I particularly like the green and navy/lanvender with motifs. I have a heavy linen tie in a similar design that I love.

    A tip: every major Western/Northern European city will have an 'upscale' departmental store - e.g. Illums in Copenhagen, Stroms in Stockholm, Harrods in London, etc (i.e. the equivalent of Bergdorf or Neiman). Some will have a 'store brand' selection of ties, often made by noted Italian makers such as E. Marinella or Calabrese - that is where you may wish you look first if you seek soporific ties that are made well. [​IMG]

    Yes, 100% wool challis by Seaward & Stearn.

    some of these ties are too exciting, this threak needs more navy solid/small patterned ties.

    Extra points for the way the tie on the right blends into the carpet?
