    I know that Drake's do provide to brands such as United Arrows, Beams and so on but can anyone do a legit check on this one specifically?

    Anybody have a good knot suggestion for a Drakes ancient madder? I picked this one up during the Exquisite Trimmings sale and am having trouble getting it to tie a good knot. It seems to be very lightly lined, if at all, which is why I think I'm struggling to get a FIH or DFIH to work. Any ideas?

    Try tying it with a longer skinny end, so that you're using a fatter part of the tie for the knot.

    UBR, thanks for the suggestion. I think I'm already doing that, but I'll give it a try when I get home. Any specific knots that work well for lightly lined ties though?

    I find that using a double four in hand gives a decent knot on my Drakes madder ties, I also use a DFIH for Drakes tussah silk ties. Traditional FIH knot for the Madder and Tussah gives a very small/skinny knot, DFIH gives it a bit more heft.

    Drake's tumblr informs me that they will have a few pairs of St. Crispin's in stock at Clifford St. Anyone know how much they're asking?
