    What's the name of that Hober silk, apropos?

    The light grey wool/cashmere one looks very nice. With what do you wear it?

    Midnight blue silk garza fina. FWIW to me it's a true navy blue, unlike the SH navy blue, which looks like a lighter navy blue to me. And thanks - a blue shirt, and dark grey pants, sometimes dark olive or dark brown donegal pants.

    Ah, good to see one in a pic. I'm having one made in dark brown.

    Makes sense. And a navy jacket?

    Excellent. I expect the usual awesome NOBD photos when it arrives, because that one (or the black) is on my list. [​IMG]

    Thanks. You've seen these of the making:

    NOBD,

    Your tie is on its way and here are some photos of the construction process:

    Here your Dark Chocolate Grenadine Garza Fina Tie has been folded, pinned and partially sewn:

    A better photo of the area where tipping usually is; note what I was trying to explain earlier - the wool interlining is perfectly fitted. Normally the interlining simply has a flat finish above the tipping area.

    The wool is naturally a lighter color so we have hand dyed the wool at our workshop, actually outside in the garden.

    Here you can see the rolled edges and finished tie:

    No, but now I have.

    Just out of curiosity, any particular reason why you opted for untipped?

    I usually go with self-lined tips for my grenadines - I worry about see-through on a grenadine.

    I don't really know... I wanted the rolled edges and asked if that was possible for this fabric. The only other choice I made was 3-fold/4-fold. I left the rest of the construction to David.

    Nice tie, jrd.

    Very happy. The colour is much deeper and more vivid than I expected, and it's beautifully made. I'll do a proper fit pic (with a different shirt) another time, but I had to try it on yesterday:
