    Pardon my ignorance, what's MD?

    Michael Drake,

    Just type "Drakes UK" in google - you'll find it, hit up the sale section, some great wools and cashmeres for ~70 US

    I feel I can wear it with any solid shirt (blue, white, pink) and a grey or navy suit. As the spring and sunnier days are coming, I like the idea of a light grey tie from time to time.

    I can see that working. Wearing cashmere in spring/summer is no problem?

    For a tie - definitely not a problem for me.

    Also a bunch from ed - wtf am I doing, I don't need any more ties [​IMG]

    I agree; let me know when you start clearing the tie closet and I may be able to help.

    Okay. Wondered what people thought about that. I have the same doubt about it as with linen in winter (as discussed in your topic).

    I wear linen/silk ties year-round and I would not hesitate to wear wool or cashmere in the summer if I liked the colors.

    Makes sense, Mr Hober. I actually meant linen shirts (forgot to put that in, but that was discussed in a thread gdl started a few weeks ago).

    Are certain fabrics/weaves/patterns considered typically spring/summer for ties?

    I never understood the idea that ties should be seasonal based on fabric, though granted I don't plan on ever owning more than 20 or so ties at a time.

    NOBD, Yesterday, I saw some new linen shirts in a store and I loved the look of the texture - without hesitation I would wear them at any time. Lighter colors tend towards spring/summer. I tend to wear what feels good on any given day as an example I could wear a bright tie in the middle of winter when there is lots of snow out to cheer myself up.

    Tim Horton, I agree with you about seasons - we both posted at the same time. I also only own 20 or so ties at a time.

    Sam Hober silk repp true 7-fold. It's unlined, untipped, with hand-rolled edges. While more true navy than midnight, I do think the flash has made the color look brighter and the finish shinier than IRL. David was helpful and generous in our interactions. I will definitely do business with him again. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^ Good looking edges.

    General question for bespoke customers/crafters: Do you use the keeper? And if not, any reason why you wouldn't have the tie made without it?

    I never use it. But it doesnt bother me at all, so i will probably never ask to have it removed.
