    Not from his new stuff, but I used to sell his ties in my old webshop. He's progressed quite a bit since then from what I've seen. There's certainly nothing to complain about when it comes to the handwork, he's very skilled, and still does all the ties himself. I have no clue about the fabrics he uses though, but I'd guess he now uses the same mills as most of the other tie makers.

    Fantastic Erik, thanks for taking the time.

    Couple of those ties look very promising... If a little narrow for my taste :)

    I think he can make them to your specifications.

    Do you have any ET ties to compare them to? I'm curious how close to identical they are.

    I don't, sorry, I have drakes, Sam Hober, Vanda, and Conrad Wu, but no ET.

    Oh, well you really should take the current sale as an opportunity to remedy that fact. All of these neats 40 pounds (and I think that's before VAT is removed).
