    ^^ a lot of great ties in there malford, thanks for posting them. since you are by no means a ties noob, have you found, leaving ties rolled for an extended period of time, to cause them to no longer drape properly when worn?

    Not at all. Although - given the room, I would probably opt for a the laid out approach :)

    Alright. So laid out is superior (makes sense). Don't have the room for that, so what about rolling vs hanging?

    Yes please (with respect to this thread)!

    I'm in the rolled crew too. Had them slightly folded, lying straight for a while but didn't like that method at all (and don't really have the room). Where do you guys fit those hanging tie racks for decent sized collections? They seem just as unwieldy as a drawer of them laid out.

    well, i guess that kind of answers that! good to know. and yeah, i wish i had that kind of room too.


    i think most people would say hanging. though malford had no issues with rolled, and he is quite reliable.

    Hermes orange untipped cashmere and Drake's grey / blue.

    These are my keepers I'm afraid (although I'm always trimming down!)

    that blue grey color is quite unique.

    Oh hold on - they solid blue/grey? That's a Loro Piana cashmere. I think you can still get them.
