J1 doesn't seem that demanding of the viewer's attention to me, which is why I chose it. YMMV of course.

 

 

Here's a close-up of it. It's probably a fabric that could be used as jacketing (maybe it was made as jacketing), but it would be a rustic jacket. And the color is much better for a tie than a jacket.

I like the colors but don't care for the amoeba, but that's just me. I prefer A8, which is similar. I got a third variation that has the same base but diamond shaped medallions. Not surprisingly, it's my favorite of the three.

Shitty ass Bart pic of my madder.

I have been wearing this madder all summer. Not all of pat's madders have that chalky feel that places them in the a/w season.

missed that one WTL, nice nod[1].gif

This season, Drake's has picked up the challis medallion that Patrizio made up a few years ago (e.g. the Indigo that is on the banner of the Cappelli website, from Cleav). They have all the colorways, for those of you who missed out on Patrizio's stock (I think he has the burgundy still, which I highly recommend):

I suggested doing the green in madder rather than challis and Patrizio is game to see if this is possible. In hindsight, a madder version will be close to the above WTL tie I have in green so I might see about other madder versions (perhaps blue).

 

Still, this design was rather popular as was the similar pattern in madder like the WTL tie above, so there might be interest. Let me know. I'll keep you informed.

OK, Fall can come now, my glutinous 6 tie order from Patrizio has arrived.  Few comments and learnings.  First time buying some outlet ties (green, blue and tan neat).  The blue and green are both unlined in the sense that the blue is a 7 fold and not sure on the green, but neither have a liner.  Early returns indicate tie knot is not as large as i prefer, so lesson there.  Also quite a bit of variance in the width of the blade at the tie point despite length only varying 2-3 inches from my standard.

 

The two grena fina i did not pay up to have him roll the edge.  That was a mistake - the point isn't quite as crisp and the  tie is lacks a bit of 3 dimension-ality.  These nit picks exist only in the world of SF.  I'll love them just fine.  The burgundy challis now seems to be sold out - i might have gotten the last one.  Really excited about that one.  Green has a real richness to it IRL.  I've put myself on restriction for the A/W season...:(

Seven fold ties also contain an interlining (the "liner") at the top of the tie that is not seen by the consumer.

Have you considered trying the gluten-free ties?

I have a 6-fold outlet tie that really was completely unlined. The knot wasn't big enough. Patrizio graciously agreed to add lining to it for me. Now it's great.

Very helpful 6, thanks.  I may take the same route.  NSM comes in November and i could have them take the ties back to Patrizio.  Old fashioned system...seems silly to go to the trouble of fedex just for one or two ties.

@WillingToLearn 

 

A very nice haul, especially from the outlet. I've been mulling over a tan tie for winter.

 

Ok, passing on pics from Patrizio, Challis and Madder...you know who to call.

Just got dinged $140 CAD in duties upon receipt of 3 Cappelli ties ordered from the e-store... The pain makes me wish I liked these ties less, but my god, they're phenomenal. 

post #1469 of 1621

even with that fee spread across the cost of the 3 ties ... they are still cheaper than Kiton, Brioni, etc....and much much better.

post #1470 of 1621

You're absolutely right... hence why I don't own any Kiton or Brioni ties...

 

The ties are unequivocally fantastic and I will be purchasing more in the future, they're just more than I'm used to paying for ties.
