Yeah I don't get that, but I am guessing it could be down to translation software he is doing line by line, but then my other thought was that Italian language is written in long form paragraphs exactly the same as English is.

Either way, he adds a lot of insight into the Naples menswear scene, so thank you T4phage. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Jezus guys, this was the only friendly tie topic left.

@ovlov assuming you take offense at the "years on shoulder" quote and assuming you see it as fun at the expense of Gianni's poor English, I believe that is not the intention. It is much more a matter of people being fed up with Gianni repeating the same old same old over and over again.

Pretty much.

I take additional offence at the fact that it being made in a different forum, in relation to a question about a different brand of tie, and is made by a guy who seems to purposely write like my 11 year old cousin. His response was also pretty much on par with  junior high schooler.

I do find it a bit odd, given that I clearly remember T4Phage writing in perfect English in his posts some years back.

 

Therefore, I'm guessing that it's more by deliberate design rather than due to translation issues.

 

Either way, the Cappelli silks look lovely.

If this is offensive, I absolutely shudder to think about your reaction to the jokes being made in other, non-styleforvms.

I used to be an ESL teacher, my wife is Japanese and I have many friends for whom English is not their native tongue. As A result I have a lot of experience with people who cannot speak English well and I it touches a raw nerve with me when people are mocked for their attempt to speak another language.

Regardless. This is styleforum. A place where men discuss classic menswear. I may be wrong but I presumed the average forumite would be a young to middle aged professional. Completely different to the average online gamer or conspiracy theorist. That is why I expect a little more common courtesy and respect here.

Yeah you're right I think this forum is predominantly young to middle age males, with above average income and even split of hetero/homosexuals. great demographic to be targeting from an advertising perspective.
