8. I'm sorry to tell you this but I purchased a number of Bigi ties elsewhere because of the 9cm width. For most jackets I currently own. 8cm looks better proportionally and I believe this would apply to the majority of today's rtw. I love Bigi and tyt because they have great texture and unique colors/patterns.For reference, I wear a tie every day and own between 40 and 50.
Interesting observations, EVF. The one thing that I haven't seen very much, at least in terms of retail availability, is wider lapels. Perhaps it is working it's way to the US.
I thank you for your photos and comments during Pitti. Great job!
Yes, that is consistent with the news I have gotten. The old black label will be tagged as purple label. The old purple label will now have the handmade designation which will help clarify the difference in price point. I think this is moving in the right direction.
