    Yea, I only discovered Drake's fairly recently but they are quickly becoming a favorite for me in terms of scarves, ties and knits.

    These are awesome.

    Which retailer are they from (i know it has the name on the label - but can't quite make it out on my screen, not sure if it's a problem with my screen or my eyesight!).

    Sorry Spoo - ignore me, i'm being a bit slow, i've just realised that's the Luxe Swap logo, lol.

    I didn't realise you also sold Drakes ties made specifically for you - is this a recent development?

    Think it is a recent development.

    I found one Fair Isle scarf in lambswool for $80. Is that a good price and should I buy it?

    I own a couple of Drakes shirts which were carried in the US by Barneys in the 90s -early 2000s.
    They were made in England. They're great shirts - very well made with interesting patterns and still look good. I see nothing in
    the current website that comes close. Had Drakes actually left the shirt business in the interim?
