I posted about this fabric before and now the ties are finished and for sale on our site. Its hard to do it justice in pictures, you really have to feel it.
Raw silk is typically a bit of a dense weave and you only really see it in solid colors. When you hold up this fabric to the light, you see this:
And look at the texture up close:
Just remember where you saw this first as they will be all the rage in menswear shortly.
A shirt that can be worn with basically any outfit for any occasion.
This is a special fabric, its a raw silk in a grenadine weave. The dryness and slubbiness of raw silk but weaved as a grenadine.
Silk Twills perfect for the upcoming season.
Lots of makers make beautiful shoes. Th English make classically beautiful shoes (I love my EG Dovers), the Italians make such great, sexy stuff. But of the shoes I own, none bring a smile to my face like these Dinkelackers. Can’t really explain it, while a very serious shoe (that is beautifully made), I feel so “fun” when I wear them. Probably the last time I felt like this was when I got my first pair of Adidas Stan Smiths back in the 80’s. In high school, some people loved them, others thought they were the ugliest things ever (I think the Nike Air Force’s were the cool shoes back then). I like clothing that is fun but that is not necessarily made to be fun (put down the pink polka dot socks). Such a serious world, one on which you can find multi-page manifesto’s on how to get the ultimate shine on your shoes (power tools required), I like people looking at my feet and saying, “WTF??”
Rocking out with my Dinks (and Panta) out.
