E.G. Cappelli Store now LIVE! - Page 12

post #166 of 444
RDiaz, all from the outlet selection. So standard 3-fold, 9 cm width and 150 cm. I don´t really need anything more fancy smile.gif

Oh man! My ties shipped already and should reach me tomorrow. So happy I'm finally gonna have at least a few more ties to play with!

 

Great service - for a custom order like this, even if it's just 2 custom ties, I was expecting it would take longer.  I'm pleasantly surprised smile.gif

Pics of two of the ones I bought ( pictures are from ebay, where someone is selling the same ones - Cappelli´s photos aren't really anything to write home about):]

Patrizio is really amazing.

When he sends over new fabric photographs sometimes they are absolutely lovely, but I'm not sure if the images are from the mills themselves:

I already posted this pic in the recent purchases, but the ties are so lovely, they deserve as much exposure as possible:) As mentioned earlier, I ordered saturday, and they were here in Denmark tuesday. I wrote Patrizio to thank him and express my satisfaction, and here literally answered within minutes. All 5 are outlet ties, but the brown stripe is unlined, which is nice of course, but not a big deal for me..

Very nice, steffen.

 

PC really needs to do a better job photographing the ties for his website - they're far nicer irl.

I'm pretty sure that's from a scanner he has at the bottom of his workshop. He has an office space down there with a scanner and computer.

An overhaul of his webstore would surely boost his sales, but maybe he isn't really interested.. Better pictures and at least a mention of the ties' colours would be a good start. Then again, that might mean less choices and higher prices for those of us brave enough to go by the current photographs...

I'm thinking about ordering also the Bordeaux knit. How's the quality?

Rrosals, 4 of them are 3-fold with a light lining. The 5th is unlined. The standard for the outlet ties is 3-fold with lining.

Thank you. I order some standard 3 fold but would like a smaller knot so will ask for the lighter lining next time.

Well, I can only compare to other crappy knits I have owned, but the Cappelli seems pretty good - the silk has a crunchy texture, a beautiful weave, and ties a nice FIH knot without effort.

 

Pretty happy with my other purchases too, though next time I will ask for lighter lining - I had no idea their standard lining was so bulky. It's not of bad quality - quite the opposite, but I prefer something softer, like what E. Marinella uses.
