    I am always ordering a custom size, but I think that, now that they regularly offer custom sizes, they switched to not stock a lot of standard sizes. They make them in-house anyway, so it is just a few days, and it is worth it.

    Yeah, no need to do standard next time if you want a different size - they are super fast about it and getting exactly what you want is a huge benefit. Which ones did you pick up?

    My last order has no doubt arrived at home but I won't be back until the 20th to see them!

    I don't think I've gotten a Vanda that hadn't received the same treatment.

    To me, that makes it an even sweeter deal, as I KNOW that the tie (even with standard dimensions) is being made for me.

    @zr3rs is spot-on. We're a small team of 3 in the workshop, so it's almost impossible for us to keep ready stock for all ~200 varieties of ties you see on the website. If you order a standard sized tie though, it generally ships faster than custom ties as we tend to have the tie partially completed, linings pre-cut, etc.

    Also, the lead time is usually under a week unless it's peak season (e.g. Christmas).

    Off topic, but here's a little teaser of the Japanese cotton Olive Seersucker tie to be released in about 9 hours from now:

    Here's the navy self-stripe grenadine, in use for the first time today:

    It's a lovely tie, perfect for summer, and ties a great knot. Thumbs up!

    [​IMG] eh, if it gets dirty it goes to the cleaners, like anything else. It's a state of mind.

    It's always a pleasure to collect a new Vanda parcel. Although it's frustrating when one of the requested swatches sells out during shipping and you realise how awesome the tie would have been.
    Also, is there any chance you are going to make up a burgundy garza grossa grenadine like the forest green one any time soon?

    Damn, good score on the wool/linen checks. Wasn't sure about it when I got the swatch, but that thing is great.

    @KingPSQ, thanks for sharing! I guess you are referring to the Smokey blue glencheck swatch? If so, I just amended the stock online to reflect that we have a few more pieces.

    Also, yes we can and probably will do a burgundy grossa grenadine soon. Heading up to see our Italian/English weavers in May, so let us know if you (or anyone else for that matter) has requests.

    Two Vanda ties, knotted and worn:

    [​IMG]
    Brown-Orange Flowers -- Reminds me a lot of an ancient madder. Finish is really dry and has some "grip" to the fabric when knotted. Still, the weight is perfect and knots well.

    [​IMG]
    Dark Navy Houndstooth (sold out) -- You'd have to look really close to know it's dark navy rather than black and under the right light. Material is a bit more structured and stiff. The resulting knot feels slightly thicker when tied.

    Also, bonus Ultimate White Square -- My second. The first one was stolen out of my car along with a suit jacket and belt in San Francisco. Also had it monogrammed, which is worth doing if you're going to wear this one square a lot like I do.
