Re-creating an old David Evans pattern
There is a group effort on-going over at StyleForum to organise a special run of silk based on an old David Evans pattern. The pictures above show the the four patterns and colure that are under consideration. To get a pattern printed, a minimum order of 6m is required and thus far patterns 1 and 3 are close to the required 6m where as pattern 4 is about 2m short.
The silk will be printed by the Macclesfield-based mill Adamley, who owns the licence for the David Evans archives, using the original silk screens. Once the silk has been produced it will be made into ties by Italian tie maker Patrizio Cappelli to each customer’s specifications - number of folds, length and width are all customisable - and for the usual pricing charged for bespoke ties (available at Cappelli’s website) . To read more about the special run and to possibly get in on it, check out this thread over on Styleforum.
