post #1141 of 1594

It is not a full review. I am not saying I do not like the tie. All I said was that I don't quite like the way the edges are finished.

Yes the tie is from Outlet so it might have been made as machine-finished edges for someone, it did not say what was the finish like in the description. It's also my first ever untipped tie so I dont know what is the standard. If there is a charge for hand rolled tip then all is good. 

That is why I asked how the edges on your ties look like because I have no reference. Hope that clears it up.

Thanks for your input

 

Edit: Just checked, when ordering bespoke there is an up charge of 20euro for unlined but it doesn't say what the finish is like. Here comes the input from those who own unlined silk tie

 

Edit: added "full"

How do you come to the conclusion that those edges are machine made?
post #1143 of 1594

I said it is difficult to say if it the edge has been finished by hand (for more details see Vanda post on hand rolled edges) but clearly it is not a rolled edge. It is way too flat.

No you said it s not clearly hand rolled.

For the reference : all the unlined (untipped) Cappelli ties (outlet or not) are made by hand (hand rolled).

@TweedyProf

I believe it had something to do with durability, which makes sense. Though I'm sure if you are careful, it makes no difference.

So I corrected myself in the second part of the sentence and stressed I meant 'roll'. I am sure you can make an edge by hand and make it flat. So not saying it hasn't been done by hand. If it was then it is not very much to my liking. If it wasn't and I was still expecting it then my bad.

Can you please tell us about the age of the silk? I remember you can determine the age with one single touch.
Also, paid ties always have flatter edges than free Passaggio ties.

Challis



Silk

The weight of the fabric will be a limitation as to how swelled the rolls are. But in these cases they feel like they are rolled.

How can you tell which fabric is vintage then was the question. Obviously it was difficult only by looking at the ties. However, the difference occur when you touch both - vintage was so much more softer! You can't be wrong when actually feeling the fabric.

Untipped ties I got for myself come from Vanda, Poszetka and Drake's. That is my reference. Don't remember others now.

I am not making any case here, so dont know why some act like it is a court. Think I explained myself already. Thanks for input @TweedyProf and others.

Next time will just ask Patrizio instead

I have, apparently, stepped into a stepped on hornets nest!

 

Ok, since some old hands who likely own some Cappelli's have joined in, very selfishly, can I invite you to give some thoughts on a different topic in this thread (beautiful cappelli's are warmly encouraged)

@cezinho and @Claghorn have already made contributions...Sorry, totally inappropriate...

 

On the issue of longevity @Claghorn , while theoretically, I can understand why one might say that, I'm not sure it will make much of a difference so long as the sewing is tight. I don't feel like the stress on the tip is going to be such that there will be wear on the roll.

Am I the only one left still thinking of getting more ties from Passaggio Cravette? I met up with him and Marta in Milan 2 years ago. I got my stuff mailed to me without a hitch. He has stuff I haven't seen anywhere else. The blue mesh tie is still on my mind but his ties are quite pricey. decisions.gif
