I think the ultimate navy tie may still be available.
Yes, though that's a wool crepe tie for fall. We're talking the solid navy shantung!
I Tumblr-stalked @SpooPoker to pull together a bunch of solid navy shantung photos for your perusal. All photos are Spoo's property, of course, and are only copied here for demonstration/convincing purposes. Spoo, hope this is all right! Source here: http://lacasuarina.tumblr.com/tagged/vanda
Obviously we all need to up our SC game. In the meantime, look at that tie!
I know but the ultimate navy tie is the ultimate navy tie.
I think you got my interest with all those pictures..
Let's see see what @gshen says, and whether it's even possible.
He should be back from Scotland soon.
Sure, though they make shantung all over the world (Italy and the UK certainly) so I can't imagine there's no navy shantung out there. @gshen will know what's up to his standards.
I just wore mine today. I quite like it. I like the texture and the added weight allows a more substantial knot. Of my various navy ties, this might be the best Summer option. I also like this Vanda square -- pale orange flowers.
Thanks so much for this. I really appreciate it! You wear it very well.
Here is another photo of the indigo tie. I hope this helps!
Navy shantung rerun is certainly possible. We'll put in an order soon along with (probably) an olive and brown version
Also, preorders for our Styleforum X Vanda Burgundy Bourette grenadine silk tie close in just 2 days. We guarantee that this tie shall never again be rerun, so don't sleep on it if you're keen!
This version will feature a custom woven label with Styleforum’s new logo, designed by SF member Kevin @Parker, alongside our own label. 35% of proceeds will go to Ronald McDonald House Charities, who support programs that improve the health and well being of children.

This is great news! Thanks Gerald. Will we need to do a preorder for the shantungs?
