new ties

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 
several months ago
i was introduced to teh
owner of 'passagio cravatte'
another maker of bespoke ties
who specialises in 'brighter'
prints and wovens with a 'vintage feel'

i initially ordered a grenadine
and a soft italian cashmere regimental
however there was a problem -
the cashmere was made up
in an unlined 7 fold....
.. and the fabric was not suited
for such a construction - it tended
to open up.
so it is now being remade
as a 4 fold unlined.

the owner also had a few
vintage silks and wools
which i subsequently ordered
and received.

l-r:
grenadine - cashmere - vintage wool - vintage madder - vintage wool - vintage silk

back of the vintage wool in what he calls
'7 fold unlined'
which only has the wool interlining
around the neck

a normal untipped 7 fold

a crisp and thin wool


construction is all very well done
except for the initial cashmere
i ordered.

I don't know why I started to think about my wife . . .

Seriously, though, nice ties T4.

I'm not a fan of unlined constructions really, but some of those fabrics are delicious. The middle two especially.

Confirming suspicions that you must be physically aroused by clothing in order to get into the inner circle. I will never look at seven folds the same way again.

T4 - I'd love to see that cashmere in person - it looks very unique.

So, at the blade it has 7 fold, but the middle has like... 10 folds? I am losing count here.
