I'm sure I would go in on it too.
Thanks, Fok. The Burgundy Bourette tie sold out super quick, so we're glad to bring it back for a good cause as well.
Unrelated - we're planning to add more colours to our range of Matka silks, so do let me know if you have any colours you're keen on! These will be custom dyed to our spec, so it can literally be any colour in the pantone chart.
A nice mustardy yellow (more on the yellow side than brown) or subdued not super bright lemony yellow.
Maybe a rust colored Matka? Keep up the good work.
And... we'll be ready once @Parker is up and ready with the logo. He was injured in a ninja battle, and is currently recuperating from shuriken wounds.
Thanks for the quick suggestions guys. These are some of the colours on the drawing board:
- Carafe (bitter chocolate)
- Arabian spice - right on the bottom of the rust tones (burnt orange/rust)
- Rhubarb (deep red)
- Port Royale (plum)
- Deep Forest (what it said)
The colours tend to come out a shade lighter after finishing, though
Carafe and Arabian spice seem nice...
still pulling for something yellow in nature however. It is very hard to find a versatile yellow spring/summer tie.
I know what you mean, and it probably has to do with the fact that yellow is a really hard colour to sell unfortunately.. Everyone has a different idea of the ideal shade of yellow! With the matkas we need a pretty large minimum order, so unless we have another 10+ guys wanting the same shade of yellow here, it's quite unlikely to happen.
We do have a plain yellow tie in the MTO range of hopsacks though - see col. 388: http://shop.vandafineclothing.com/collections/neckties/products/mto-vbc-wool-hopsack
Well, I'd be in. I'm less discerning than @PCK1 so whatever works for him would likely work for me.
Honestly all the colors sounds great, but I agree with PCK. Top choices would be Carafe and Arabian Spice
Is this going to be a striped tonal grenadine tie or is it going to be a solid?
If we can get 10 orders for this holy grail yellow, we're happy to make it happen!
@justinkapur - it'll be a solid, like http://shop.vandafineclothing.com/products/terracotta-matka - which I think you have?
I might have that. I forget which I have but it looks familiar lol.
If thats the case I might be open to all the options because they all seem like fantastic choices. I do think I have a bitter chocolate in that same texture but I dont have the other choices.
Yellows to ponder over:
