Double four-in-hand is a good idea. MSchapiro, if you e-mail Vanda, Gerald will be happy to advise you.
What color suits would this match?
I probably wouldn't wear it with a suit, but I'd very happily wear it with an odd jacket and trousers. It would go beautifully with the "classic" combo of a blue jacket and grey trousers, but would also go well with autumnal colours such as brown.
I have an orange knit that I love to pair with a charcoal grey suit.
Any colour suit or odd jacket, but I would avoid the darkest shades of navy/charcoal because they're too formal for such a vivacious tie. Also, I would ideally choose heavier-weight fabrics to complement the texture. Texture is more important than colour with a tie like that.
That's the one I ordered. It's been shipped and is on the way. Can't wait!
I received my first two ties, pocket squares and lapel pins from Vanda yesterday. I ordered the forest green shantung, and the burgundy with grey spots tie. The pocket squares were the blue and orange silk PS, and a white linen PS with grey borders.
The products are incredibly well made, and I really enjoy their airiness and individuality from other makers. I will definitely come back for more!
Here's an action pic of the shantung tie, and one of the lapel pins. The PS is from Hober, in Carlo Riva cotton.
looking good pazzion. x-posting these from Recent Purchases:
Thanks! And wow. I absolutely love the ties on the left and right. Though I only own navy and dark grey worsteds, so I don't see me being able to pull them off. But wow. Good buys!
Some more Vanda perfection just arrived. Pics from my phone do not do these ties justice. Picked up a Navy and a Dark Chocolate grenadine, which are excellent. The Burgundy and Yellow ties are brilliant as well. Nice new feature with the label sewn to the inside of the tie.
Good choices. Enjoy
Saw these on his tumblr. It will be interesting to see the whole design when he releases them on 11/13.
