@gshen, while placing an order today I ran into a stalemate over 2 ties; the brown herringbone cashmere silk and the undyed escorial cream herringbone. They seem pretty similar to me so, with escorial wool being pretty close to the softness of cashmere, I was curious which you prefer?

Yes they're pretty similar colour wise. The Escorial version has slightly narrower herringbones, so it has less white and appears a wee bit darker. Escorial is a bit smoother and more uniform in finish while the cashmere/silk version has a tiny bit of slubs - it's also a lined six-fold Vs Escorial which is a lined four-fold.

Block stripe preorder ends in about 13 hours FYI!
