    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Sorry to generalize, but that tie and it's colour, is classic, and something an Englishman would wear. Well, you're one. I like that tie, -- but bear in mind, it will always be the centerpiece of your outfit. Always. Is it still available from Hober?

    Personally, I love madders like that with an odd jacket. Is it red, or burgundy? Would prefer the latter.

    Thanks. Darker red than appears in the pic, but would prefer darker still.

    Yeah, I would definitely want this to be as dark red/burgundy as possible. But broadly, I like that tie.

    Thanks - dunno if it's on the web catalog. Email Patrizio and send him the pic and he'll recognize it I'm sure. PM me if you run into difficulties.

    Although I will say - while I really love that tie - I'm not sure I'd want it as one of my only 10 ties. And given that you have said elsewhere that you're just starting to build your collection, you might want to look for something more versatile. Just my opinion though.

    Well, this sort of tie is probably not the most versatile, but since I wear odd jackets most of the time, they kinda make sense. And would work with all of the shirts I wear now, which are either solid blue or fine blue and white stripes. In that context, they would be rather versatile. I can wear my dark red Drake's madder with my entire wardrobe, for example [​IMG]

    I want to get one or two large neats like yours and the navy I posted above, a madder, and a wine or brown knit.

    I don't mean because it's a neat, I mean that the colors, while not loud exactly, aren't really subtle either. The tie in your avatar is a much better kind of tie for someone who has 10 of them. Anyway, I'm not trying to discourage you from the tie, which I obviously like or I wouldn't have bought it - it's a beautiful piece, you'll be glad to have it I'm sure.

    Makes sense, in fact I'd like the tie better if the red was darker - I might ask Patrizio if that print is available in a darker red, or otherwise different colours altogether [​IMG]

    It wouldn't be one of my first 10 choices either, but I like it so much, I think I should order it before he runs out of that cloth...

    Yea it's really more towards purple than red anyway. But it's not quite purple. Not sure what exactly this color would be called.

    Some shade of burgundy/wine, I guess? Burgundy is between red and purple...

    ^yea probably one of those two. It may not be the "perfect shade of wine", but it'll do.

    Reposting this (1) because it's awesome and (2) to ask where that tie comes from.
