E.G. Cappelli Store now LIVE! - Page 81

post #1201 of 1593

^ I have Drake's and enjoy them. If you are patient, the prices always drop. They often have some unique fabrics which catch my eye.

 

@C&A did us a great service to get pics from the store. 

 

Relatedly, Patrizio sent this batch to me this morning (and perhaps he sent them to some of you as well). I'll post them just because they give another look at the fabrics but also make clearer their orientation when the tie is made, I think.

 

 

 


If any of you have picked up the recent challis versions of the "Drake's" pattern or pick up any of these madders, please do post. I'm interested to see how they look when sewn up.

Well, looks like I need to send another email to Patrizio...

I can't stand that drakes only sells 9cm ties in ridiculously long lengths. I'm tall but those lengths are foolish. and 8cm is too skinny. 9cm is classic and by far the best width. 

 

Much better to just go with Cappelli.

I ordered the one to the right earlier today. Will post when I receive it.

With my last orders there have been one or two fabrics that are out of stock. I have a long wish list so finding replacements is not a problem and Patrizio is always supportive and suggests great alternatives. But I must admit I get a little disappointed every time. I would therefore be the first to applaud if they chose to update to a modern site which also tracks inventory.

Not sure if I'm repeating this or if it was already mentioned in this thread (apologies if I am) but Leatherfoot now stocks Cappelli for those interested in purchasing within North America.

I have the same tie. Fantastic.

No longer on the site, though Exquisite Trimmings might still have it. This one is 9 cm x 148 cm, three-fold, untipped, lightly lined.

It is a great tie, shame I snagged it. You can just see it on the right there. Anyone any remedies for such things? NM, all part of life's rich tapestry...

Pulls are easy to fix. Take a needle and a thick thread. Insert it at where one of the threads go in. Push needle through the interlining. Then drag thread through aiming to have it pull the othe thread side by side, if that makes sense. I usually put my thumb on top pushing down to help the thread to grab onto the pull. A few times does the trick.

You're very kind, thanks. I will probably try that smile.gif

David Hober (and family) made a video on how to repair a pulled/snagged grenadine.
