    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.

    Anyone notice their new collection is mostly made of 8cm RTW ties? Rather excited about that.

    Well I would be more excited if they had more 9 cm ones [​IMG]
    But yes it's good to see the 7 cm ties go away.

    Their ancient madder is great, and some models from this season look really nice:

    I wish they weren't so much €€€€...
    These are self-tipped (which I prefer), vs. last season's, which were untipped and featured bolder prints, still great though:

    Truth. The 7cm ties were useless, IMO. 9cm is ideal. Good on Will at ASW for stocking them.

    I wish to no end that I had bought some of Drake's medieval-themed scarves and pocket squares last year.

    Agree wholeheartedly about 7cm ties. I can go either 8 or 9cm, slightly prefer 9.

    I can't wait until it gets a little cooler, then I will feel more comfortable breaking out the unicorn prints from last F/W!

    Malford of London is a great place for ties and squares. I have a local shop, Samuel Parker in Baltimore, that has a good selelction of Drakes squares, for some reason, all he carries is the 7cm ties though.

    Cool vid, never would've thought they pressed them like that.

    Same here - I assumed they'd use a press cloth.

    I don't think they're pressing down that hard. You can see some of the same process being done here at 4 mins and 25 secs

    Wasn't thinking so much that it would get overly flattened rather that they'd scortch the silk.
