    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.
