Thanks! I had looked but wasn't sure.

Can someone tell me, when making an order in the shop under number of folds it says "7 folds unlined recommended" . Does that mean he recommends unlined for the 7 fold ties? Or if you Rick that box you are ordering 7 fold unlined, which is what he recommends? Ie does the 40eu surcharge include getting unlined or do you need to fork
Out another 20eu?

He recommends the unlined option for 7 fold ties.

So the unlined 7-fold tie costs €140 in the end (€80 for the tie +40 for the 7 fold + 20 for it being unlined).

Price goes up quickly doesn't it ;(
Plus I need to upsize so €160.. That's almost passaggio prices.

I usually go for the 3-fold lined ones since I prefer them over the unlined 7 folds...

I'm yet to pull the trigger but looks like the 3-folds make a perfectly lovely knot, going by the pics here and elsewhere.

Hmm. Might start with an unlined 3 fold then and see how that goes.
Maybe I'm a sucker but since I got my first 7 fold I've had a hard time getting anything else.

Do you mean lined? An unlined three-fold would be barely there - a bit like a light scarf?

Well I meant the Italian version of unlined; untipped. But I did not think of that. I just asked Patrizio for his recommendation on wool ties and he suggested unlined for cashmere and lined for challis. He may have been referring to 7 folds only though.

I have never seen an untipped 3 fold. I just prefer my ties that way.

What is the default tip style for his ties? Self-tipped?

Yes, default is self-tipped - at least for printed silks. One regimental tie I have (brown/ blue) has blue tipping.

Well, I would say that Patrizio is generally the cheaper option if you compare it to Passaggio. And his ties are made in the same workshop in Napels where Gianni gets his ties made. It's also the same workshop that makes bespoke ties for Rubinacci.

To give you an example, look at this tie, which is available in Patrizio's webstore:

Granted this is not a Cappelli bespoke offering, but it is being offered for considerably less than the Passaggio example:

Can you please tell me if some of these ancient fabrics are still available? How old are they? Are they italian or english made? Incredible beauty...




Thank you very much for your kind post. I am happy to know that you like my old vintage silks, really. Maybe the yellow is still available. But I need to check because I'm not sure. Both are old hand prints of Italian many years ago. I do not remember the exact date but I'm going to see and I'll tell you.

If it is still available the yellow one you hear?

While the blue one has been over for a long time.

From emailing with Patrizio I understood this silk to be an English (!) screenprint that he bought about 3 to 5 years ago. It was made by Adamley. He told me it is actually quite easy to distinguish between English and Italian silks. They are woven differently. Now this actually makes me wonder where Gianni found his one....... and whether it is really an ancient Italian hand printed silk……

Wow! Scandal!

 

I didn't know they used the same workshop. In fact I naively thought Patrizio did it all in house. I wonder how he manages to charge such a low rate for the outlet ties. 

So that means PG and EGC grenadines would be identical?

 

I haven't tried Cappelli yet (that faux vintage grenadine order is my first), but if the quality of construction is truly identical and he continues to work with us on these special commissions I think I will have a new favorite maker.

By the way can anyone comment of how regularly Cappelli's stock is updated? 

His pocket squares seem incredibly cheap compared to the ties but there isn't much of a selection at the moment. is this normal?
