Where To Buy Silk

Finding the right kind of silk for a necktie is already hard enough because most stores only have light weight silk. And when they do carry silk, they are mostly in solid colors. Solid colors are fine for neckties but that gets boring really fast. If you spend all that time to make your own necktie, you want a nice pattern that will stand out and draw some attention and still be classy.

So far I have only been going to F&S Fabrics. I live in Los Angeles. They have a huge selection of silk especially for neckties. You would think that that was their main business with the amount of inventory they have. The only drawback is that all of it is vintage silk.

Just recently I found out about another store thats a little farther away but has silk fabric for neckties in all sorts of patterns.

Well it turns out that the shop on beverly doesnt have as nice of a selection, but has more modern looking silk. Another downside is the price. Its $30/yard instead of $20/yard.

Hi everyone here,

I have started a new shopping portal - www.topestore.com where I have made my all endeavors to keep the prices highly competitive & a stores directory namely www.safeshoppe.com. I would thank the community here for their suggestion/advices. Please do not consider this a spam.
