Look what came today!

View attachment 1402241


Just wanted to say thank you to the active members of this forum. I have followed this thread (and lurked on styleforum lol) for a good while and the feedback here has helped a tremendous amount when getting my tie game up.

To this point I had rare opportunities to wear ties and rotated between a black grenadine, burgundy dot and navy dot tie. I recently changed jobs and need to get dressed up more, so I knew if I had to up my existing capsule. Happy to share my final choices (now that I can't miss them ;). Most of these just arrived and some are already OoS!

Thank you to Gerald for working with me on a couple different orders. The ties are phenomenal but the customer service may even be better fwiw.

Finally, I'm on the hunt for the brown navy stripe tie below, if any of the old heads on this forum want to part with one. It will go to a good home :)

Thank you for sharing the pictures - that's a really nice and comprehensive collection you got going.

Glad we got you started posting on SF too!

Considering I have all but 2 (depending on tie to the right of the Dugdale linen), safe to say I approve of your taste :cheers:
The yellow linen/silk stripe is a sneaky summery MVP for me. Would love to see it in different colorways...particularly in a burgundy or navy base
This is the same tie in a light blue base: https://shop.vandafineclothing.com/products/light-blue-silk-linen-repp

We had it in pink too, but that sold out eons ago! Don't think these would work quite as nicely with darker colours, as they're woven with a white warp and that suits generally lighter, more summery shades better.

@XXghostfaceXX that's a great start to a nice Vanda collection! I see a lot of familiar faces in that picture. :cool:

I heartily concur with @ericgereghty on that yellow linen/silk stripe. I wear that one a lot. The light blue stripe version of that tie is also excellent and I'd recommend that to anyone. Eric should we have a challenge where we post a picture of our respective Vanda collections? I'm curious what @gshen has set aside in his own personal stash...

I had to also get some squares, since I had been using an old white handkerchief exclusively to this point 😂

Awesome quality. I think Gerald should start making masks... or maybe I can use one of the neckerchiefs to look like a fancy bank robber 😷 ?

Oh man, pink in that makeup sounds awesome. Would love to see that rerun, if at all possible.

Ha. Intriguing. I'd need to do inventory. I believe I have a handful of Vandas hanging in my office as we speak. If nothing else, it would serve as a reminder that I really ought to get some more. Not sure what my count is as currently. It's somewhere between respectable and hideously lacking, based on your scale.

The Dim Sum and sky/white linen squares are just tremendous. I'll always get a kick out of comparing Vanda squares (and ties) to objectively great (and heartily SF approved) competitors...and chuckling at difference in quality. D&G are masters at their craft. Best I've seen.

The only ties I have hanging in my office are non-Vanda’s that I removed from the tie rack to make room for more Vanda’s. 😂

I should have taken some pictures this week. Two ties that arrived during the stay at home order timeframe made their long awaited first appearance.

Appreciate the suggestion! We've been getting mask requests quite a bit recently, but few things are stopping us from doing it:

1) Our fabrics are mainly dry-clean only. IMO fabric masks need to be washed frequently for hygiene and safety!

2) We don't specialize in making commodity type, mass produced products.. others can machine sew these faster, better and cheaper than us.

Thanks Eric! We put in an inordinate amount of time into getting the edges as finely sewn and tightly rolled as we can.. glad you enjoy them!

With regards to the pink tie - I find that reruns of these less mainstream sort of colours usually don't sell quite as well.. but if there are a dozen or so members keen on the same tie, we can make it happen.

We've just released 40 new MTO options - now available on www.vandafineclothing.com.

Featuring plain and checked designs in wool and linen from Reda and Trabaldo Togna, our new MTO options are light, dry and very textured - perfect for summer!

As an introductory special for our new MTO neckties, we are now offering two discount codes:

1) Preorder any MTO necktie (including the old VBC MTO Hopsacks!) and enjoy a 10% discount off the regular price of S$180 (excl. local sales tax) each. Use discount code 10OFFONEMTO at checkout.

2) Preorder any 3 MTO neckties (including the old VBC MTO Hopsacks!) and enjoy a 20% discount off the regular price of S$180 (excl. local sales tax) each. Use discount code 20OFFTHREEMTOS at checkout.

Our COVID-19 shipping special still applies, so orders of 3 MTO neckties (or anything above S$380) ship free worldwide via FedEx!

This introductory offer only lasts for 4 days, and will close on Tuesday, 16 June 2020, 2359hrs Singapore time (GMT +8). The neckties will be ready for delivery in approximately 2 weeks.

FWIW, I really like the Togna fabrics! If you dig the VBC hopsacks and want an even lighter, more summery version, these are just the right thing.

Reda stuff is pretty sick too:

@gshen Just to confirm, 126-6692 is a teal green shade right? One pic on the website looks grey.

Also, is this 126-9514 in its made-up glory?

126-6692 is dark green with white warp so the effect is a less saturated green. Not teal for sure.

And yes that's 126-9514!

Thanks. I'm always curious what your favorites are when you do MTO's like this. You're the one sitting with the swatch book in your hands after all. :cool:

The ones we made into ties should give you a hint!

I really like the Togna stuff anyway - really nice bounce and drape on these.
Ok. Help a brother out and label the made up ties! ;)

Is this 126-6586?
