    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I has it. The thirst.

    Also, interesting. So Exquisite Trimmings, an affiliate vendor, is selling the wares of Passaggio Cravatte, another affiliate vendor. I am hoping this means that more thirsts will quenched all around.

    I guess PC is more production oriented whereas ET is more distribution oriented. It isn't like Howard Yount selling Kent Wang ties. And Davesmith, those are excellent choices to offer [​IMG]

    Thank you for your kind words. At the moment, we have 10 styles available, some in 8cm and some in 9cm widths. There is more on the way plus a bespoke collaboration with some exclusive fabrics.

    The "thirst" that Gianni is referring to is the bar tack. Took me a while to figure it out!!!

    This is my personal vintage silk ... now extinct for customers. He has more than 60 years you lived life on his shoulders.

    What do you think of this vintage silk? is soporific?

    Do you think that thirst is one of the oldest I have. It feels wonderful and has a print run still fantastic hand. This silk is 1950.

    Do these count as a soporific or are they just old fart ties?

    It might be sleep-inducing? It is certainly one of the more vintage silks that I have. It is still a silk vintage hand-printed 70 years ago.

    The "thirst" in Gianni's descriptions means "silks".
    Both the word silks and thirst translate into Italian with the word "sete".
    He is probably using google translator and he is getting the wrong word.
    Stay thirsty my friends....

    although sometimes I was wrong by not putting the silks soporific ... now we try again.

    What do you think of this vintage? is soporific?

    has always been printed many years ago in Italy
