Got this one from the 5 Fold Outlet ties. It's very versatile:

Thanks for the suggestion. It might be my computer screen but that one looks more charcoal than brown to me. Almost every time I have bought brown ties on line I have been surprised by the actual color.

Do you have any pictures of it in “the wild”? Would really appreciate it.

I don't and I'm out of town but will take one when I'm home. It's definitely brown, maybe a shade darker than chocolate. Not at all grey.

Cheers, Patrik.

 

Two probably are: the green silk above remains, I believe, in a challis version which Patrizio said he preferred and the burgundy medallion in challis. Drop Patrizio a line.

One thing gents. What I don't like are the edges of the untipped tie. They are as flat as they can be and certainly not hand-rolled, well hard for me to say if not by 'hand', I am sure it is not a roll though. How do your untipped edges look like?

I too am outraged by this.
post #1134 of 1607

I wouldn't go as far as outraged but it is a bugbear with Cappelli ties (mine at least); the edges are routinely over-pressed - even though i always request 'sfoderata arrotolato a mano' and again in English.

 

Luckily for Pat and me, i don't fetishise hand-rolled edges as other folk do; in fact, when it comes to my tie enjoyment, it doesn't factor in my top five.

I am not outraged either. However would expect the untipped Cappelli tie to have rolled edges even though they do not describe the way they do edges. For untipped tie it is particularly nice IMO

post #1136 of 1607
I think this is one of the more ridiculous complaints I've read on SF and that is quite an achievement. But maybe I need to think my tie enjoyment rankings.

So from the top of your knowledge you are saying the rolled edges are machine made, right?

post #1138 of 1607
Seems to be heating up here, perhaps unnecessarily. Is this an outlet tie as opposed to bespoke? Also the material might have a role to play. Ammanti post this in the necktie thread as Sam Hober is there and might explain some of the ins and outs of hand rolling. Don't mention that it's Cappelli. Just ask about the ins and outs.

A few points. For what it's worth, I've never had a problem with my rolled edges from P. They are substantial in the right way but they are largely wool. I'll check my silk and linen later. Second, it's a 20 euro up charge for hand rolling bespoke so I think it's fair to expect a certain level of quality. That said, I'm sure Patrizio will make it right if there's an issue.

I remember @Henry Carter made a strong case against it once, or at least strong enough that handrolling stopped being a + and became more of a - in my mind.
post #1140 of 1607
What was the case against it? @claghorn maybe we should move this to the tie thread? Then Sam and Henry can feel free to weigh in.
