    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.
