    It is silk indeed. I tend to not buy season ties.

    One could argue that that pattern in that color make your tie ideally a s/s one, regardless of the type of fabric. ;)

    But no worries, I'm just giving you a hard time. Both your tie and ericgereghty's are great.

    That tie is traditionally a wedding tie, not really seasonal at all - but i think the pattern would hide the wrinkles anyway.

    Honestly, I haven't tied a non-Vanda tie for ages so it's hard to give you a comparison. I think it may be a matter of technique though, as I've never had problems tying knots with our ties. That said, I tie a tie more frequently than most...

    I wrote a short post about tying a four in hand, which you may find useful: http://blog.vandafineclothing.com/post/102497515863/one-knot-to-rule-them-all-the-four-in-hand

    Most importantly, the dimple should be formed as you tighten the knot in the last step, not after. Absolutely critical to getting a proper knot that stays in place throughout the day.

    That seersucker is nice...plans for other colors?

    I have dreams about that navy Japanese silk seersucker from a while back.

    Agreed on the navy seersucker. Would love to see it return, but I might just buy this olive one too.

    This actually will help. For what it's worth, it was by no means a critique of Vanda, but rather an issue brought up by my inability to knot up properly.

    I would venture a guess that, with my Vanda's, I'd been waiting until it was nearly tightened before forming a dimple, which may have compromised its ability to properly form. Though I like to think mine still had an obvious dimple, they are obviously knot (yuk yuk yuk lol) on a level with the gents here.

    In any event the half-knots I'd made held consistently with no sign of slipping or adjusting throughout the day...when it's worn for 12+ hours, that's a wonderful sign of quality in my opinion!

    @tgaith77 & @kickstand - Navy seersucker will be dropping together with the olive too, of course :slayer:


    Give it a go and let us know how it works. Feel free to drop me an email if you need any further tips too

    Just made my first order for some ties! Just out of curiousity, I got an email saying my items weren't in stock and were being made then shipped out. Is this common for others or have others experienced this as well? I assumed that these ties were not MTO, correct?
