After a very good walking tour of the Garment District led by Mike Kaback, I spent some time at Mood Fabrics on 37th St earlier this week. The store was actually the last stop of the walking tour which is very convenient.
I last visited Mood about a year ago and picked up two tie silks that were made into bespoke ties by Uno Antica Cravatteria in Palermo. The ties turned out beautifully. Out of curiosity, I revisited Mood’s tie silks rack on level 3 and discovered a refreshed inventory of woven and print silks.
I ended up getting several one yard lengths (widths vary but are usually about 28 inches) which you can see here. Not surprisingly, my plan is to give these to Antica Cravatteria and let their in-house tie maker work her magic.
