Is that a Cappelli wool challis? One of the cloths I chose at his atelier was that... beautiful. Should be here in a week or two maybe.
You have a bit of a pattern clash going on, though!
itsa nice tie. great hand. what i really like about cappelli is the shape- generous width at the neck; and the complexity of the patterns. great playing with combinations
Good news everybody. I've just commissioned (is there a better word for that? it feels so pretentious) another navy blazer. Subtle herringbone, with 3 patch pockets and MoP buttons. This will bring my total of solid navy blazers to 5. In addition, I believe another pair of HY trou arrived today, so I now have a total of 7 pairs of gray trousers. You too can achieve this dream. This crazy, obsessive dream. Next windfall, I'm buying 2 pairs of brown cordovan park aves (each worn 1.5 times a week, should last me well over a decade, properly cared for, yes?).
I've noticed that Italians (well, Neapolitans at least) like a big knot. Cappelli himself does. That's probably why they are generous in width at the neck area...
He does indeed have tons of tasteful prints!
