Perhaps a better way to say would be to view it as a large order (presumably w/different ties, widths, lengths) going to one hub so as to reduce the burden of the shipping fee.

You can count me in, been wanting to try his ties out

Do you mind sharing the details (product#) of this tie, Cleav? It looks lovely.

On another note, I just wanted to reaffirm what great customer service Patrizio offers. I've ordered two ties (Drake's silk) from Patrizio. But since I'm out of town I told Patrizio that I can't make a payment until friday. He was absolutfels fine with that, made the ties, and has shipped the ties to my address although I wont make a payment until I arrive at home in two days. He took the initiative and offered to ship them before payment so I would have them available upon arrival. bigstar[1].gif

I know there're some great vendors on here, but I can't imagine anyone would offer this kind of service. He haven't even sent me an invoice through PayPal, just told me the total.

EDIT: On the 3- vs. 5-folds debate, given the same construction/lining I prefer 3-folds. My experience is that Cappelli's 5-folded ties become to heavy if they're lined, often showing the top of the collar band above the tie knot. I'm not a fan of this.

Thanks man, it is a seven fold. #A47.

I've just checked and I can't find it so assuming it's gone. You could try Patrizio via email to see if he has any left?

Whilst searching there were some similar... ZZZP10, ZZZP15, BO1

Best,

Cleav

3-fold on top, 6-fold below. (Not quite the question asked, but perhaps helpful.)

Just to clarify, is there any reason why these should differ in the size of the knots just because of difference in number of folds (3 vs 5)?

 

Isn't the extra fabric of the 5-fold confined to the blades without running up into the area that will be knotted? So, any differences will more be at the width of the tie at that point, i.e. how wide it is cut, the material, and the interlining (e.g. Patrizio might use a lighter interlining with 5)?

 

Edit: these are six folds I guess versus three

Both "Drake's silk" ties have arrived. I'm very happy with them. The silk feels dry, which is a good thing. It creates friction which helps the tie knot saying in place. Might share a picture wearing one of the ties tomorrow.

Wow this is nice. I realised that there are not many striped ties in the EGC website. Does Patrizio have others that he did not put up on the web? 

post #1105 of 1588

Yes, I too would love to see more striped ties from EGC! Anyone have any more photos?

post #1106 of 1588
I thought both of these turned out nicely. They are not mine but Patrizio sent a pic to me and perhaps to some of you too. Pic is a bit blurry but you get the idea.

I often think it's too bold when hanging on my tie rack, but it looks awesome with a navy suit.

 

It is printed on twill.

I like it with a grey suit, too!
