Great stuff, Manton.

Nice stuff, Mike! The Victory square is worth the trip in and of itself.

No. The garbage problem is in the outskirts and suburbs. The city proper has other issues, petty crime and terrifying driving included, but not garbage laying around.

I don't know why anyone ever thought they were made by Drake's. I can easily see some of the silk being sourced from them, though. It's not like Marinella claims that it spins, weaves, and prints its own silks. They just make the ties.

Yes, and if you order custom, you'll see that they produce and deliver much faster than would make sense if they were having things shipped back and forth between Naples and England.

bespoke ties are made there in naples.

as stated, ive seen RTW with e marinella tags being made here in London.
there was someone on here that even posted buying sample/second ties in london from said factory with marinella tags.
marinella may also use other sources for RTW ties, or may have since taken production in house, i can only speculate.

the only reason i brought it up was to give more options of where to find "marinella" ties, at potentially different price points. they're all good quality regardless.

Interesting, I didn't know that. Maybe things have changed or they only sell Italian-made ties in their own stores.

Manton - great stuff. The Rubi cashmere tie is obviously sublime. I actually have a Rubi silk/wool tight knit in a very similar green/navy check like the Capelli you have. Mine has smaller checks though. I guess they all have similar tastes!

Yeah, yeah, ties are nice and am glad you didn't get mugged or fall into a heap of garbage in the street but where is the obligatory Neapolitan pizza picture?

Will have more to say later, need to catch up first. Just wanted to add that the dark red & blue cashmere houndstooth is actually H&S Escorial. No doubt the only garment from that cloth I will ever own.

There was no shortage of garbage in the city. The 'burbs were worse, though.

I never felt unsafe crimewise anywhere, including in Spaccanapoli and the Spanish Quarter.

The driving is insane.

I am wearing the Mina suit today and I think I like it. I am fickle so give me a couple of wearings to know for sure. We went round after round on the tightness issue.

Manton - Beautiful ties. Is the first (lavendar/purple) part of the CBD rubric ?

Joel Klein joins the fold!

I am curious to hear your thoughts on NSM vs AS. But you having 6 more suits done by Solito speaks volumes as to your preferences.

I'll tell you one thing, Mina's sleeve is pitched correctly!

What....I drove by Spaccanapoli in a taxi during the day, and I was checking my door locks every 5 seconds. Naples might have great tailors but it's not a pleasant place to be in.
