I assume that you will be taking the man for lunch. I would like pictures of the group of you breaking bread together.

Good pic. If anybody can add 1 point to Italy's GDP, it's Patrizio with his ties.
post #1175 of 1678






these are new linens that are not yet on his site but he already sent them to tweedyprof so they may have already been attached in this thread

the armoury bought a lot of his stuff that wasnt online

we'll go back on saturday morning and go through the bespoke fabrics if there's anything interesting that's not on his site i'll try to take a picture

he confirmed his outlet ties are made to the same specs as his bespoke ties. so blue loafers can just resort back to passaggio. patrizio got about 100 outlet ties in 8 and 9cm with hand rolled edges in some great designs because an italian retailer didn't pay for his order

@C&A 

 

Thanks for the pics. I forgot if I uploaded those fabrics, but I did post the Navy linen glen plaid that was made for me. The brown/red GP is also interesting...did you get a read on the actual color? More brown or rust?

 

I think Patrizio told me he is getting some Grezza medallions in soon, one in an olive green, one in a grey, and one other...The green is between the two arrows on the right.

I didn't go to Patrizio today...too busy. Maybe next time.

This morning, I had time to investigate different handrolling results.

 

 

I tried to put together mostly thin fabrics.

 

Top row are (from left to right):

Shibumi madder, Cappelli silk, Cappelli madder, Rubinacci silk

bottom row:

Hober wool, HNWhite madder, Vanda wool, Vanda madder

 

Clearly there are two camps. The Italian camp prefers a wider and flatter roll, the others try to make the roll round and as small as possible. I do not think that this distinction has anything to do whether a tie is handrolled or not.

 

For me it seems more of a stylistic choice, because the effect at the front side is subtly different:

 

 

Here you see Vanda and Cappelli madders in direct comparison. The Vanda tie curls a little bit more, the Cappelli borders are straighter and cleaner.

 

I do not think that you can call any of those less proper or incorrect. I very much prefer untipped ties and do enjoy all of these.

Very cool. Always nice to see patterned linens. Don't see that offered up by many other makers to the best of my knowledge.

Excellent comparison. I like the Vanda roll the best. HN White looks good too. Cappelli and Shibumi look OK. Not at all into the look on that Rubinacci.
Thanks for this as I do not have handrolled ties from any of those makers except for Cappelli.
