How do you stack RLPL ties in the world... - Page 2

post #16 of 37
I am personally very fond of Ferragamo ties. I think that they often feature quite original and nice designs, if compared to other brands. IMO, most brands insist on very boring designs (sure, they may have class, but I still find them a bit boring). Some Ferragamo ties also have a very nice texture, like the white/blue/turquoise blue silk one that I am wearing right now, bought for EUR 55 (USD 70, aprox.) during sales at the Munich airport.

Don't forget Nicky and Breuer.

Yes that is correct. Sorry about that.

Purple Label ties are made of terrific quality silk, by and large, but the patterns are cut too narrow for me and the ties are too short. I don't like the knot they make. This is a recent trend. I have some from the late '90s, early 2000s, and the cut was different. Fashion must have whispered in Ralph's ear that it was time to go back to narrow.

Thanks a lot, guys. I really appreciate your feedback. So Purple Lable ties seem to be in pretty good company. I personally like the PL ties in solid color or just simple stripes. I am in agreement with Manton in regards to their silk quality.

By the way, whnay, what make you feel it is worth it to pay at full retail for Charvet and H&B?

Thanks.

I would recommend the Massimo Bizzocchi ties and you can find them cheap on STP.

So true. I believe Ralph got started with wide ties ironically...

I currently like Mulberrywood and Charvet MTO and Nicky.

Kitons are too long for me and Borrellis too wide.

Yeah, but aren't you just about tall enough to be Yao Ming's twin?

One of my favorite ties is a PL knit in an outstanding shade of slightly grayish blue. (Agnelli is shown in Roetzel's "Gentleman" wearing a somewhat similar tie.) In general, I'm not all that crazy about PL ties. And don't get me started on the Polo ties. Vastly overpriced.

My favorite tiemaker remains Charvet, though many of the patterns are very ugly.

In terms of ties available on the cheap, I have two Fabio Ferretti ties I really like. Two of my favorites, really. And I bought both at Marshalls for less than $20.

I believe Altea makes for RLPL.

I have some Fabio Ferrettis that I got from Marshall's and TJ Maxx. Are those good quality. Recently I have purchased alot of ties from TJ Maxx and Marshalls that are "Made In Italy", but from what I understand, that doesn't really meant a whole lot. And about Polo ties, they have those at my TJ Maxx also, for $14.99. The Altea ties are $16.99.

No one has ever brought an Italo Ferretti tie?

The makers for Brioni and Stefano Ricci...

Why buy Brioni and Stefano Ricci....


Of course, I have one tie I would love to have: Attolini Napoli 7 fold.
