Damn shame this thread is so inactive.
So Im here to revive it and say
Just another glowing review for Vanda. I received my first Shantung tie this week and couldn't be happier. The service was fantastic with constant communication and updates. I ordered a custom tie and still had it made and sent sooner than many OTR purchases from other stores!
Special thanks to Diana for answering all my questions!
Now to decide on my next purchase. This is going to get very expensive...
My next order of amazing ties:
Special thanks to Vanda for taking pictures for me
I can't wait until they get here
I've 8 or 9 of their ties and they're all exquisite items. Great to be able to support an artisanal concern with such a focus on quality in terms of materials and workmanship and lovely people too
So far I've managed to resist the Shantungs but suspect I won't be able to hold off much longer
The ties are great, but the pocket squares are...
Are all of their ties unlined? Do they make lined ones as well?
The navy shantung I purchased from the is fantastic in the way it knots and drapes. I want to buy all of the ties in their web store
Having exchanged emails with Diana, my sister who lives in Singapore, made an appointment to visit and pick up a tie for me. She told me that Diana and Gerald are an absolutely lovely couple and the ties and pockets squares are beautiful.
When I first spoke to Diana she asked me which tie I wanted and that they would make the tie and have it ready for when my sister visited (!). I ordered the green herringbone in raw silk:
My sister is coming over in a couple of weeks so I will take some pictures and post some thoughts then.
Absolutely. Some pictures of mine in the soporific ties thread.
Every other Monday is a dangerous day now in my house...I suspect my wife is contemplating hiding the plastic from me until the tie/square-lust has passed. But it never will...
is it me or has the site been down for a few days?
I think Naka acted on his impulse.
would definitely do it. i hope he bought some for me
I told gshen to put a hold on his stock for me for my impending $70 million dollar lottery win tomorrow. PM me if you would like a free Vanda tie, it's my way of giving back to the Forvm.
