    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.

    Picked up this today from NMWA. I had my eye on it for quite some time, but could not find it locally anymore. The Drakes popup store in Soho sold out and it was more expensive at Todd Synder in Madison Park. NMWA service was impressive as was the packaging.

    Paul Stuart probably has some (possibly made by?) drake pocket square as well, and they're running extra 20%, tie wise Barneys probably has the best sale price though their selection are not always the best (still miles better than when Bloomingdales carried Drakes tie)

    Speaking of Paul Stuart, they have some Drakes ties on sale in 50oz silk and 3.75'. Nice classic width.

    A few pick ups. NB: these are the first three that I have purchased direct from Drake's. I find the finishing here excellent and strikingly different from third-party sellers, specifically Barneys where the finishing of Drake's ties, on average, is not as good (see the tie thread for one example).

    The two grenadines are a bit darker/richer in real life. I believe you can still pick them up at NMWA. These were purchased from the NYC store.

    Very nice, actually looking for something similar just a little darker with brown, grey and red. Thanks. :)

    Certainly would look great with a dark Drakes knit or gren' :nodding:
