Shantung silk tie from Drakes, London

Today is my birthday and a special treat is this gift from my parents-in-law:
An untipped woven shantung silk tie from Drakes London. 

Lovely texture and feel to the weave

It is my first tie in shantung silk, but I really love the textured look and the feel to the tie.

It is an exquisite tie and I love the fact that it has been made by hand by skilled craftsmen in London.
The gift wrappings also adds to the experience...

The tie will match my coming Christmas present perfectly (I presume :-)) ... the crude spun silk goes well with a sports jacket I gather.
