New tie manufacturer

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was informed by a store here in the Netherlands of a new startup company in Italy called La Buca (funded by Dutch investors). Something along the lines of Chuck's Carlo Franco idea of cutting out the middleman. All the ties are handmade in Como. Here is the website: La Buca Strangely though, most of the pics are taken in Italy with the exception of the photo with the two guys and the girl: taken at an Italian Trattoria right near where I live. I actually know the younger guy who is the co-owner of the restaurant (he is Italian)

Some of the ties are pretty thick, especially the double tie - which I hate to no end...

Yes, the double-tie leaves a little to be desired. Tommy Hilfiger does the contrasting fabric for the small end, obviously not a full size tie, though. Tommy Bahama finishes its small end in a tie shape, although in miniature. Do we know prices/availability of these?

I don't know, you should email them. I think that it is sold only in the Netherlands though.

Thanks for the info. Hey Chuck, I want to see a picture of a Carlo Franco Campagna around Jill's knee.

It's amazing, the Tim Fortuyn school of tie knots is still alive and well in the Netherlands.

Actually, it's Pim Fortuyn. Yes, I really really DETEST that look. It is very common among the "hip" crowd. I guess that Fortuyn's sense of style is appreciated by many of the people here, and at the time, his politics as well. I cannot understand this man's popularity in a country that is in my opinion one of the most caring in Europe (just see the amount of ad's that are run in support of various third world charities). How can the electorate have voted so heavily for a right wing racist (although his racist message was toned way down), unless this "caring" image is only skin deep.

T4phage, just out of curiosity, did he slam non-Muslim immigrants too?

At that point, the issue of the eastern Europeans entering the E.U was not yet at the fore.  He was against "immigrants" who at the time mostly come from Muslim countries. edit: note also the way Georg Haider of Austria dresses, big fat ugly knots.

That "T" was a typing error. I did not know how to spell his surname. I thought it was "Forteyn", but google (bless their little cotton socks) directed me to the right spelling. And then I turn the Pim into a Tim. Slap wrist: "Pay attention".

By the way, how did a German end up living in England? Especially with people like Jeremy Clarkson who just loves teeing off Germans and Americans??? Clarkson is an idiot ..
