Catching up on pages and pages of posts. Saw a post asking about tie narrowing. Replied instead of quoted so my post a few back lacks a little context.   In any case, to whomever was asking, that was me.
That was me.
Untipped 7 Fold with handrolled edges in thrifted black twill.      
Playing around with typohound...   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mens-Canalli-Exclusive-Cashmere-Sport-Coat-Wheat-Yellow-Small-Mint-Vintage-FAB-/140995510161?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item20d3fcbf91     might be worth an offer
No label, no keeper.
So ever since I told my daughter she can have half the net profit on anything she finds she makes a bee line for the ties as soon as we hit a thrift.   This time by the time I caught up with her she had a fistful of Zegna's already and was asking if Brioni was any good. All she left for me was the RT BOC, Polo and a possibly fake Versace...   I suspect if it's real it's very old. I have never seen that lining before. Any opinions? Spoo?        
Huge shout out to GMMcl who sent me a 6 fold to deconstruct!   I managed to create a pattern from it and made this from thrifted cloth.   Self tipped, lined six fold.        
I can recommend http://www.amazon.com/Shirtmaking-Developing-Skills-Fine-Sewing/dp/1561582646/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1373368198&sr=8-1&keywords=shirtmaking   Get the accompanying DVD, well worth it.
New to the thread. Someone in the thrifting thread said I should post this here.   Wool/Cashmere Seven fold tie. Untipped with Hand rolled edges.
