@gsugsu , I actually have been around since this fiasco began,. As I said I have an order in the works at the moment that was finalized just days before the phit hit the fan.   I honestly don't recall where I looked. I just remember when I was considering making my first purchase I read a bunch of reviews and blogs and came to the conclusion that not all of PC's fabrics were vintage to the point I automatically though the first post on the AV thread was just puff that...
Depends how casual your wedding is. FWIW I prefer Vanda. Their offerings a little more expensive (about $120us I think and about a$7 surcharge if you want made to your own measurements) but the fabric and construction are fantastic and the small surcharge to make sure it is exactly the length and width for you is well worth it. They also seem to love their plaid so there are a lot of options.   This is the one I wore for my wedding earlier this...
I actually found in my initial research that pretty much every blog review and interview of Gianni/PC states that his fabrics are a combination of vintage, reproductions of vintage and "vintage inspired". I forget where but a couple stated his fabrics were 80% vintage. This is why I was surprised there was so much hooplah about people thinking everything was vintage. In fact I remember when I first looked at his samples I was trying to figure out which were vintage and...
I don't understand the turn around time either. I origibally presumed it was because he was running a very small local operation and was having trouble dealing with the huge influx of business after joining style forum.

I therefore thought he probably Only worked in and around Naples through word of mouth prior to this. How did you...
Actually was hoping for cashmere. But I must say those wool winter special orders look nice.Do you have any of them in 4/6 fold and care to comment/post some pics?
Does anyone know if Vanda ever produce cashmere or cashmere/wool ties?
I used to be an ESL teacher, my wife is Japanese and I have many friends for whom English is not their native tongue. As A result I have a lot of experience with people who cannot speak English well and I it touches a raw nerve with me when people are mocked for their attempt to speak another language.Regardless. This is styleforum. A place where men discuss classic menswear. I may be wrong but I presumed the average forumite would be a young to middle aged professional....
Pretty much.I take additional offence at the fact that it being made in a different forum, in relation to a question about a different brand of tie, and is made by a guy who seems to purposely write like my 11 year old cousin. His response was also pretty much on par with  junior high schooler.
Why be such a dick?
"Some"  I really like the bottom middle and the one at the far back. Any chance you know the ref for those fabrics? That green floral is pretty sweet too.
