I missed when the drop was live, now I regret it. Hope it will be back one more time !
I'm looking forward to this dropping again. I bought the maroon tie with dots on the last drop and I love it. It gets compliments everywhere I go. The sheen is unlike any other method of crafting ties. The way it lays is comparable to more expensive Italian 'high fashion' ties. The old style craftsmanship is what drove me to the drop in the first place, and it does get noticed (the former men's fashion director for the luxury department store chain with the initials N.M. called me out on the street and asked about it).
Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.
Expect another update from us on 1/10 or sooner if something comes up.

@IanAnderson For archive/comparison sake is there any way to still see the patterns from the last drop?

Here are 4 we did last time:

Disappointed, the green in the photo really pops. In real life it's really dark. Incredibly slow this drop - August to November, TF?
BlakeMorrow
Sorry to hear that you don't like the color!
These were made to order for each customer, so the long lead time accounts for manufacturing time. We always list the expected ship date for every product at the bottom of the description page, which in this case was late Oct (which sounds about right).
BlakeMorrow
Fair enough. From memory you said there would be one every month?
Slowest damn shipping!

How did you assess the MSRP? It seems a bit inflated compared to what I am seeing online: https://www.hangerproject.com/makers/robert-keyte.html http://www.matchvm.com/ties.html
Thanks

Sorry for any confusion!
Thanks for the quick feedback. I still believe this MSRP is inflated. Budd madders (which I am 99% sure are made by RK) are 85gbp (including what looks like the same green print) http://www.buddshirts.co.uk/green-madder-small-geometric-tie.html (though likely not handrolled, but it doesn't double the price) Thanks
is this drop is for one tie or four?
Weihenstephan
One tie, you get to pick the fabric used :)
Gorgeous ties! I really like the burgundy but I wear tires only rarely and it's too similar to the Pants burgundy I was gifted. Really looking forward to the next styles, though.
Edit: Panta burgundy, referring to my tie, although my burgundy pants are pretty sweet as well.
Interesting drop, but why on earth sell them that way! As a customer, I would like to 1. choose among all 16 and 2. not pay shipping multiple times
Niclam
We can't offer all 16 at once. If we offer 16 fabrics x 2 widths x 2 lengths, that's 64 permutations, which is too complex for us to offer at this price. We'd need to charge more and the lead time would probably be longer.
IanAnderson
That's fine if you can't actually offer all 16 at once (with me, at least), but still having an idea of what the ones to come look like so I can decide if I want to jump on one of these or wait for another one. Otherwise I imagine I'm going to be waiting to see if there is one I like more and maybe miss out on one I would have bought otherwise.
It's a good deal, but at $100 I can't really justify more than one of these, so I want to make sure I get the one I like the best.
"What kind of tie are you wearing?" " Oh its a Robert ...Keyte ...Deadstock ...Ancient ..Ma..?" :/ "...Nevermind"
OneLove
This is why I don't talk to anyone that isn't into menswear.
Any chance that RK could include slimmer ties in future drops? I wear ties daily and the widest I will wear is 2.5in (6.3cm). While the designs are great, an 8 cm tie is just way too wide for my body type.
Vseel
Doubtful, although I bet they could it doesn't really align with the design aesthetic of classic tiemakers like this (and doesn't work as well for large patterns anyway). Speaking as a thin person myself, I will say that I think ties that are 8cm+ still look quite good! I think the "thin ties for thin people" is less of a thing than it's made out to be.
Is there any information on the length of the ties? I like the current styles, but having a long torso I need to make sure if they will work for me. Thanks!
MattmanAK
You can choose between 150 and 155cm length, along with 8 or 9cm width. Sorry for not including this - I'll update the page!
I don't think it's right to do a price comparison with Drakes because most companies will always look inexpensive compared to Drakes. It just takes a quick Google search of madder silk ties to see there are reputable companies like Sam Hober that also sells madder silk ties at a price point more similar to this, or cheaper (Brooks Brothers and Chipp Neckwear).
deva
Fair point, although I picked Drake's because country of origin, fabric, and construction details are the same. BB and Chipp have different construction methods (and I'm not sure if Chipp is using real ancient madder).
I met someone from Robert Keyte randomly at a trade show earlier this year when he complimented my tie. I told him that it was from a collaboration we did with Panta, and from there learned that he worked for a company that makes some very rare - and very beautiful - silks. Fast forward many months, and I'm excited to be here bringing Robert Keyte to Massdrop.
As mentioned in the copy, RK is the only remaining producer of this type of fabric. The fact that we were able to dip into their archives and make ties out of deadstock fabrics is especially cool - it's unlikely that these ties will ever be made again. This is the first of four drops with RK, each featuring about four ties from their archives. These will be made-to-order for us and should arrive in peak madder season :)
Oh, and before any comments about how madder ties cost so much, here's another UK-based brand selling these for much more as a point of comparison: https://www.drakes.com/madder-silk-ties
Also, another great article about madder: https://www.asuitablewardrobe.com/blog/not-ancient-anymore-still-near-extinction/

Ian....this is a monster price for, in my humble opinion, an amazing work of art. Hand made and very rare. Big props!!!!
