Port Royale. Maybe Kombu instead of Deep Forest?
Harvest Gold or maybe Fall Leaf?
Lol, sounds like too many options! I definitely like the ones @gshen offered up though. I agree something in a yellow shade would be nice for summer, but it's do hard to pick without seeing in person!
@PCK1, @ericgereghty, @Andy57, @jamie411 - either golden glow or artisan's gold are nice shades of mustard (english rather than dijon!). Just a little caveat that the actual product is likely to be a wee bit lighter in colour and slightly varied in tone, like our current matka offerings.
If you gents are serious about this, we can drum up more interest on our social media page, and create a preorder page. 10 pieces and we are good to go!
I am serious.
I'll pay a deposit now lol...
I like both options...leaning a bit towards Artisan's Gold...but I can def do Golden Glow if it comes to that.
Artisan gold is a bit more burnt yellow? I like that better than a brighter yellow
If the shade will come out slightly lighter IRL, I would definitely say Harvest Gold.
I'm happy with either of the mustardy colors...i'm also happy to buy 2 if needed...I can give one as a gift.
What are the customizations available for bowties? You can do just about any style? Any cloth that ties are made out of?
Are the custom bowties that you make adjustable or are they cut to fit specific neck-sizes?
Thanks gents. It looks like we have around 5 pieces now - we'll put up a pre-order product page where you can pay for the 50% deposits, and at the same time try to get more orders on our social media pages.
@PCK1 Yes, basically you can pick from just about any of our necktie materials to make a bow tie, as long as we have sufficient fabric on hand. I wouldn't recommend the ultra heavy ones like the tweeds and donegals, but everything else should be fine. The bow ties are adjustable to fit neck sizes around 14"-19", and at the moment only come in a classic bat wing shape that is a personal favourite of mine. If it helps, they're just a little less wide than the famed charvet bow ties.
make it 6 people in!
1. Awesome - looking forward to the pre-order page. We have 6 now...I am sure 10 will come easily.
2. Thanks for the info on the bowties Gerald. Very useful. I challenge you to try a diamond-point in the near future! I do love the batwing...but diamond point is my favorite style and I will gladly be the test customer.
Preorder page is up - http://shop.vandafineclothing.com/collections/neckties/products/preorder-mustard-matka
Click on over to place your preorder, gents. Will keep you updated on the numbers we have when we hit 10
Just gave my deposit for 2 of them...thanks much Gerald!
On a separate note...a wish-list feature on the site would be a cool addition...you have so many interesting ties...a wishlist to review all the ones i like and am considering for future orders would be useful...and also so i can store them and won't forget them.
