 Yes.. First time I wore it.   Well I guess u mean Cappelli, but I hope u don't mind my spruiking Vanda. Imo just as good in the same class of tie, and unbeatable  in their speciality i.e. the light-weight Summer tie.  Here's a brown neat in 6 fold, 36 oz printed Macclesfield silk.
   u mean the cat that's simultaneously there and not there?
 FWIW my suit is a navy (poor pic ).   Navy suit, dk blue tie, white shirt, white square, dk blue socks and black oxfords. The departed was an academic/engineer, and most of his colleagues, friends and other loved ones at the funeral were wearing sombre tweeds and odd jackets.  Engineers aren't known for their snappy dress sense AFAIK.  Only the sons of the departed wore black suits, so this funeral pretty much conformed to Eliod's comment.

Apart from being matchy, the square is a...
Similar look to yesterday, but different bits and pieces  [[SPOILER]]    Grey Fresco (Kent Wang)  HC wool tie  Hober linen  Kamakura micro-check  Edward Green

[[SPOILER]]   I know you're particular about ties, TP, and I commend you for it, but I have one of the ET Cappelli Donegal's and imo the knot  is a good size for my collar (16").  I also find that as I use the tie the cloth loses some of its elasticity at the knot, which diminishes a little each time.  YYMV
