Most readers will have forgotton that I planned to open an online haberdashery this year, and the project has taken so long that even I nearly forgot about it. But what was originally intended to be special order shoes and cloth has taken a different turn, and interested people will see a growing selection of world class pocket squares, neckties and scarves available from stock over the course of August, to be followed by shoe inventory in several months.
The store will be adding items this month bit by bit until it has a couple dozen necktie designs, silk scarves and squares for early autumn. Many of the items are resurrected designs from the archives that will be available only from ASW. Orders will be accepted online, and shipped without taxes or shipping charges from Nevada.
I look forward to your feedback after the project is live. Please watch this space.
