Topic: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Not sure how many ties from Spectre we'll be doing as most seem very simple, so there should be plenty of budget alternatives. But, we are doing the two-tone knit tie... here's our initial prototype:

http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg291/indy_magnoli/Clothiers/Grenadine%20Knit%20Tie%20sample-WIP2_zpswvg4ntbp.jpg

It's 100% woven silk, two tone brown with reinforced neck. Probably will be ready by early February.

Kind regards,
Magnoli

The square tip needs to be the lighter brown and the silk band should be on the darker side.  ajb007/bond

Looking forward to it Indy!   ajb007/smile

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

I've no chance of owning the original tie so this will be ideal.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Looking forward to the finished product Indy, as I'm sure are a lot of other AJB'ers  ajb007/biggrin

Still trying to find a good alternative to the BC linen jacket, without having to pay BC prices though.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

The tie is double sided (one side is the lighter brown, the other side is the darker brown). The original TF tie we have has the reinforced neck on the lighter brown side. Here is another shot of our prototype:

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

So it will be a truly reversible tie?

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Yes, we're going to have our label on the neck part, so the tie can be worn either way.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Hi Indy - I bought three of your JB ties this time last year and loved the quality and colour of them. My only slight concern was, as somebody who is 6'2 tall, they only touched the top of my belt if the other end was extremely short. I would love to purchase the new tie, but am concerned that with the banded neck I wouldn't be able to achieve the length I need.

Can you either confirm the length of the tie so I can measure against ties I know are long enough - or would you consider making a longer version of it? I know I would be prepared to pay extra for the longer length.

Apart from that, I'd give the highest recommnedation for the quality of your work to anybody who was hesitating buying. In fact, I'm just off to order the Spectre mock turtle neck and the blue Cocktail shirt!

Yes. Considerably.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

The front of the tie measures about 27"/69cm from tip to where the reinforced neck starts. Part of this length should make up the knot, so hopefully this will work for you.

Thanks for the info Indy - that is most helpful!  ajb007/smile

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Bond wears the tie quite short in the movie ... So it should be fine and SA  ajb007/smile

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

What will be the price of the tie? Timeframe until available?

15

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Price point should be as most of our ties (around $60 shipped). These will probably be shipping in early to mid February.

16

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Is this available yet?

17

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

I have a handful of your ties..  will definitely pick this one up as well

No, not yet. I'll post as soon as they are ready. Shouldn't be much longer...

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Given that you are making the tie, do you have any plans to make a replica of the BC jacket he wears with the tie. I know I would jump on a jacket replica as there are great frugal options for the pants, shoes, the shirt, and now your tie. If so, what would be the price range? Thanks Magnoli.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

We could do the blazer for $395 (shipped), completely made-to-measure.

21

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

What material would the blazer be composed of? I believe the BC one is 51% wool, 41% linen and 8% silk (as per Matt's website).

22

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

Most likely we'd use a lightweight wool blend (around 85% wool, 15% synthetic), but if you wanted to source something more similar to the original, we could see what we can find. The price would likely be another $100-$150 if we do find a closer match.

how close to the original colour can you get. would be interested in a jacket tie combo

24

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

We should be able to get pretty close as it's not an uncommon shade.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Ties

I'd also be interested in a version of the jacket as well Indy.
