Through thick and thin
Winter wool waltzes by your windowThe wool releases are like Christmas for many of our customers - that much we can tell from the order lists. Most wool lovers are suckers for the laid-back, not-so-in-your-face matte shine of wool. Many also like the bulky feel that’s common in woolen ties. Some manufacturers even skip the interlining in thick woolen neckties, thinking the weave is sturdy enough to maintain fall and stability without. In our experience, the interlining still helps a great deal, giving neckties a longer life, so we’ve decided to keep the interlining, but made it noteably thinner, the result being that thin woolen neckties are really thin, and the thick ones are really thick.
Well, we’ve gone through thick and thin to give you both kinds, which also reflects our perception of our various customer groups’ wishes: more subtle elegance, several solids and both sturdy and slender weaves.
Roughly half – Andrew, Jake, Joona, Lewis, Santiago, Sasha and Sherif – are thinnies whereas the other half is of the bulkier kind: Colm, Eamonn, Elmar, Irmtraut and Wolcott. Solids predominate, but despite their tinctorial unambiguity they keep alive via dynamic, slightly melanged colours and stealthy herringbones.
