Awful pic, but damn sexy ties. A good Friday indeed.
Any chance this will get restocked?
Navy olive plaid if image doesn't come thhrough
Nope, sorry - we're completely sold out of that tie.
Working on new paper patterns for a custom order (3 3/8" x 55") from @jcmeyer:
That's really awesome, Gerald. I had no idea you'd have to draw out an entirely new pattern for each size combination you make rather than there being some sort of a universal pattern that you simply expand/contract as necessary. That said, I know very little about sewing, though my wife dabbles in it, so it's no surprise I didn't have a clue.
Thanks for sharing it! Would you mind if I use the picture on my instagram?
Shoutout to Vanda!
Not at all- please go ahead.
We definitely could, but keeping a paper pattern allows for best consistency between orders.
@The Noodles - very well done. Great knot!
@gshen - In praise of exceptional craftsmanship from VFC.
Some new arrivals on our webstore!
The new self-striped grenadines are a nice alternative to a solid grenadine - those stripes are really subtle when worn.
Those self stripes are sexyyyyy
Navy linen shepherds check. Love it
^ Great tie! Just cinch that knot a bit tighter.
It really is awesome. I definitely need a feeling out period to figure out how to cinch my Vandas. For better or worse, they make a different sort of knot, though I'm not really sure how to explain exactly why that is the case.
Also, being linen, I'm probably trying to baby it just a tad to start things off haha
Nah, just pull it a bit tighter, it won't hurt it.
Maybe what you're describing is due to the fact that most Vandas are unlined or very lightly lined? Also, is your tie the same as the one Noodles posted a few days ago? Would be a good option for summer weddings.
I don't think noodles was linen - I had the same shepherd check, but in silk rather than linen
+1 with VVV. I'd be guessing, but I'd bet Noods is the silk one. Either way, both pretty damn good for summery weddings.
I would need someone with more Vanda knowledge to expound upon my little bit. I have plenty of lightly lined ties (few unlined...one of which, not this, is Vanda), but for some reason this one feels lighter (airier maybe?) than those others.
