No problemo tounge.gif With the lighter lining and this kind of silk the tie feels pretty much like a Marinella, but with more evidence of hand stitching, and I'd say the interlining has superior drape.

thanks.  I ordered 5 ties to get the free shipping. If I work at the knot enough, I can get a decent FIH, but I too found the lining very thick.  I'll ask for a lighter lining on my next order.

i've been ordering in 5+ batches to get the free shipping, but dropping $500 on an order of ties isn't exactly an easy purchase. i've also been getting burned with customs - only about $25 on my first order, but $50 on my most recent. i'm a little hesitant to have anything shipped by regular post from italy; lost a package a while back.

anyway, i placed an order for the sky blue grenadine with murder ave. will report back once it gets here. the shop owner mentioned that he had some prints/repps/cashmere ties stocked as well, but no pictures yet. he also mentioned that he had something in the works for his first customers that bears with him while he sets up his shop, but didn't provide details

The lighter lining is still very "springy", so it just makes a slightly smaller knot but other than that it feels very much like the thicker one. In either case I've found it helps creating a great looking knot that stays in place, instead of detracting from it.

I just checked Linkson - great deal. Would pull the trgger in a flash if they had a dark brown linen.

Same, or this colour in linen (this is wool/cashmere)

That's a pretty good deal! Brings it down to about $75 each shipped.

forgot that this thread existed. murderavenue sent out a newsletter regarding a couple coupons. i think they were supposed to be for previous customers, but since i won't be taking advantage here are my codes:
Quote:
All-

Until the end of May, please use coupon code U3VG5ZW to purchase the sky-blue grenadine tie for $100 including overnight shipping. I know that some of you have already purchased the sky-blue grenadine, so I will extend the offer to also include the brown grenadine. The coupon code for the brown grenadine is WHNYSJV. No one has purchased both the brown and sky blue, so there should be something for everyone.

These ties will be part of the "essentials" collection at launch and will not be discounted during sales, so please take advantage!

There are only a couple of these ties remaining, and the promotion will expire early if inventory of those ties are out.

We will also be donating $10 per every tie sold that is not part of the tie-of-the-month or that did not use the above coupons to the One Fund Boston fund. http://onefundboston.org/

The events that occurred during the Boston Marathon hit close to home as Boston had been my home up until about six months ago.

Thanks
Murder Ave Ties

Could someone kindly tell me what the silk is like on Cappelli's striped ties? Is it the ribbed, heavier silk that one would expect in a club tie/school tie? Or is it smooth twill silk like their neats? Because I own a Marinella striped tie that is smooth like a neat, and I really hate it -- I don't want to make the same mistake with Cappelli.

Thanks in advance.

I have a couple, and they're all ribbed. Don't know if that means anything though. Cappelli has a pretty big inventory, so it's probably best to clarify with them.
post #223 of 422
Thank you. I thought I'd ask here first just in case there'd be a language barrier describing ribbed silk over email to Cappelli.
post #224 of 422
I've never had trouble dealing with Patrizio. His English isn't perfect, but it's more than enough to understand.
If it's still a concern, I think murder ave ties has a regimental stripe in stock. Maybe you can direct your question there

I think the term you are looking for is a repp silk, which is what most regimental/school ties are made from. Thicker and ribbed like you described. Spoilered below, as these are just both mine I had on hand to illustrate
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Repp (or sometimes spelt reppe)



Printed silk twill (or neat). Much thinner and softer, drapier fabric.
