I'm really wordy, easy to miss.

Thanks. Is the 16881 series silk or wool?

I had asked about these two fabrics on the off chance he had them (getting a bespoke tie from Patrizio would be less than the cost of the Drake's, even on sale).

I like both because the medallions are a bit more subdued as are the backgrounds. And if you were to tell me both were madders, I would believe you. I believe that these are all silk (the Drake's are). If your ok with medallions, I think they are solid, staid choices. NMWA sold out of the right; Drake's put the left on sale and they were gone before I could click on the link.

I agree with the love for the green/rust above. My third choice.
Now those two are of more interest to me. Is Patrizio able to stock them?

^ I think the 16886 series is actually the same scale as those ties. At first, just looking at the swatches, I thought that they medallions were smaller and tighter as well. It would be good if TweedyProf could confirm that Patrizio is saying that those swatches are the same scale as the Drake's ties.

post #935 of 1594

As far as I know, the 16886 series is the same fabric as in the Drake's, so should be the same scale. I will check and confirm when I give him our feedback.

 

@DonRaphael the fabrics of the two Drake's are these (hard to tell, especially on the left but the separate pic of the left above is exactly the same as in the Drake's). So, yes, he can stock them. If you missed out on those Drake's, then you can have a Cappelli version, not bad hmmm? If you want them now, I know Steve has a few at Gentleman's footwear on sale. 

 

 

I didn't recognize the left, so he sent me a different pic as confirmation

 


If it isn't the Drake's it's spot on.

 

@Mr. Six  I'm pretty sure they are silk. Steve has them as 36oz Foulard's

So, I'm pretty sure that they are the same scale. I don't think Patrizio will be able to confirm much since I doubt he has the Drake's in hand. If needed, I could ask him to place a coin as reference or a ruler? 

 

Six, I think you might be the only one interested in the 16881. Well, you have good instincts. I'll ask Patrizio but I'm pretty sure they are silk too.

Thing about 16886 col 1 and 2, while I like the blue background, I shy away from the red. Rust or brown would have been better, but then I want the medallions to be more subdued. Take Col 5 and put a blue or brown base instead of purple, and that would be a winner.

 

Did Drake's sell out of the other colors they have? I didn't find them on their website on a cursory glance.

I would never imagine that DEG15776_3 and DEG15776_4 would be those two Drake's ties. The fabrics don't look busy at all seeing them as finishen products. Given that they are the same fabrics as the Drake's ties, I vote for DEG15776_3 and DEG15776_4. I could wait until Cappelli stocks them, I'm in no hurry to get them asap. Keep me updated regarding those two fabrics.
post #938 of 1594

Yeah, I can't be CERTAIN they are the Drake's but they look like the Drakes. I'd bet good money they are and Patrizio tells me that they are, or strongly implies.

 

When I sent Patrizio a pic of the ties, he told me he had seen those fabrics as well and as he was in England, he asked about them. 

 

Anyway, I think he will get those two for sure, not just as a kindness to me, but because he likes them as well. The question is about the others.

 

@DonRaphael  since you are a customer, when I email Patrizio and hear back from him and post here, you could drop him an email and let him know you'd like those fabrics too. The Armoury has been doing big buys of desirable fabrics from Cappelli, to our disadvantage. So, worth getting in the queue

Thanks, I'll await your response and then get in touch with Patrizio. Depending on how subtle and (dis)similar 16886_4 is to 15776_3, I might be interested in it as well.

I agree with this sentiment. The green one is the best of the bunch IMO, but the entire bunch has closely-spaced motifs that I am not extremely taken with. The quad-ruled notebook paper thing is not ideal in my experience.

post #941 of 1594

Yes, I'd like a bit more spacing, and that's why the two Drake's appeal to me more than the others. The subtlety diffuses the density.

 

You mean the green you originally voted on, yes?

post #942 of 1594

Ok, not a huge number of votes but

 

16886 4 seems ahead with the most votes

 

At least two of us like the Drake's fabrics

 

Then two for 16886 Col 2

 

Not a lot of love for 16881 (@Mr. Six any thoughts on those...were you tempted?). Of course Patrizio might pick some of these, and I'd be curious what he chooses. I'll email him this evening so feel free to weigh in sometime before then (EST).

I suspect 16886-4 is more of a forest green, more saturated. Medallions will be a but more foregrounded, though. I suspect the fabrics are more muted in real life.

post #944 of 1594
I personally wouldn't order any of those as none seem to stand out to me. That is not to say they are not right for someone else. My official vote would be for none.

I like both the 16881 col 1 and col 2. Would order either.

Would definitely order 15776_3. 15776-4 maybe.

I have some other similarly patterned ties from both Drakes (several seasons ago) and Capelli. The patterns are not really small scale, more medium.
