 You've probably read my thoughts in the Cappelli thread. I think most of the printed silks I have from him would be fine as a 3-fold with light interlining. I have a couple of 5 or 6-folds, which add some volume and are nice but would probably be about as nice as 3-folds. As TweedyProf suggests, you should just email Patrizio about the fabrics that interest you and let him tell you if he thinks any of them need a thicker lining or more folds to achieve what you want.  I'm...
^ Fair points. I noticed that the blue check stood out, even in the low light, but the rest of the pattern seemed toned down so the overall effect was less frenetic. And the indoor light seemed a bit more like how many of us spend our days, so maybe it would seem more like this. I agree completely on infrequent wearings.
Another version of the LL city gunclub. I don't love this fabric but it seems a bit more subdued here. (From Musella Dembech.) http://www.styleforum.net/t/306802/atelier-musella-dembech-master-tailor-in-milano-italy-official-affiliate-thread/100_50#post_6328916
That's a combo I've considered myself, although probably as a OE II bal boot, rather than a Valway, and HAF. But then I don't have real winter. Enjoy!
Thanks! I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. In particular, I asked for the (seemingly less common) rounded u-cap but wasn't sure what the charming result would be. They're about how I imagined them. I'm most interested to see how the gold museum looks in person, since photos vary quite a bit.
@heldentenor I agree but I think "tribute" is an important part of that characterization. They're also very Internet aware and on-trend for the igent. 9cm ties are only a small fraction of what they offer through their own webstore, and few retailers order their ties in that width. Maybe I'm wrong but I think that 7cm have actually been increasing in number in their own store. @smoothie1 I was surprised to hear half-canvassed as well, but then when I looked at the absence...
I really liked the Miyake pieces as well. The feathering portion of the show was also great. Reminded me of a recent show of Hawaiian feather work at the De Young in San Francisco. Feather capes probably the coolest thing in clothing ever.
Stopped into the Drake's pop-up this afternoon. The staff was very nice and easily discussed their products. They said that business had been good so far. A permanent outpost is a possibility. They had a nice sampling of ties, squares, scarves, shirts, sport coats, sweaters, and other products. All of the ties are 7cm or 8cm. I asked about 9cm. The reaction from the staff was interesting--strongly suggesting that they view that width as "classical," which I took as...
^ It's subdued. Visible, but subdued. Overall it has a green-brown cast, but unless you're looking for it, you wouldn't necessarily notice a particular green element.
