post #976 of 1678

I'm guessing this has been answered here numerous times before, so my apologies in advance:

 

Under the lining option, the surcharge for unlined is $20 (I know it's euros). Does this mean the entire tie is unlined or just the tipping?

 

Basically, could I get a lined, untipped tie and miss the 20 euro add on?

As noted above, "unlined" means untipped. The ties are lined as needed. You're paying that 20 Euros for quite expert hand rolling when untipped, so no, no avoiding in your stated config.

My sense is that they line based on the nature of the fabric and if you request a specific knot, etc. I sent a picture of Cleav's knots and my standard collar, and asked Patrizio to "make that (Cleav's) for my collar at 8.5 cm blade." The rest is history...I'm hooked.

Some of the pics are already posted (see the gallery), but the Cappelli's I have are also shown in my IG, the link is in my sig. Hashtag #egcappelli brings up others, mostly @cezinho  and the armoury lads.

I was in Naples a few months ago and picked up these Cappelli ties. The store is very difficult to find, even with an address. It's in a courtyard between two streets. The service is excellent, Patricio and the saleslady are very helpful. I'm very happy with the purchases.

Black 3-fold. To be worn exclusively at funerals. Unfortunately, I'm reaching the age where many of my friend's parents (and my own father) are passing away.

Maybe my new favorite summer tie.

A close cousin to the second tie but I like the combination of blue and brown very much.

Self-tipped six-fold tie for evening engagements.

Three-fold burgundy grenadine tie. Very versatile.

When the rest of my outfit is speaking loudly, this three-fold tie should whisper quietly but with something interesting to say.

Nice selection. I have the one spoilered above (though unlined), and I enjoy wearing it very much.

Hi,

Awesome choices, my favorite is the stripped grenadine; how unfortunate is that Patricio does not possess it any more (or any other beside the green)!

According to EGC site, the knit ties much be of 7.5cm of width; can you please confirm?

Thank you in advance

I think he meant the knit and not the gren tie?

post #986 of 1678
Hi,

I would like to thank both @brax and @MrTRC for your interest.

Indeed, I meant the knit ties, our fellow SFer must have misunderstood because I said that the grenadine is my favorite!

At any rate, I would like to take this opportunity and make a suggestion: can everybody who posts pictures be kind enough to share further information, such as Code Number (it would be extremely usefull for the rest gentlemen to see the color / color combinations IRL), Width, Construction (3-fold, 5-fold, etc). In this way, we may be able to have a visual "proxy" of a preselected tie.

I would appreciate your input on this!

Cheers,

Dimitris

Agree, the quality of Patrizio's work is far more helpful than the swatch photos on the website

Unfortunately, I cannot help very much here. I have no code numbers as I picked these up at the store rather than ordering them from a catalog. The type of construction is noted in the original post. The width of the knit ties is 6.5 cm.

Have any of you guys ever received an email from Patrizio from the following email address: patriziocappelli@galaxy.net ?

The reason I'm asking is because I received an email from this address yesterday morning without a subject or anything written in the email, just an attached .zip-file named "Fhb". It looks suspicious. I contacted Patrizio regarding this but haven't received any answer yet. I don't know whether it's a spam mail/virus or an invoice for two ties that I've expressed interest in earlier. You'd think he would get in touch with me regarding measurements etc before sending out an invoice (by mail?) if that was the case.

Their normal email seems to be working fine. I received an email yesterday from the normal address: info@patriziocappelli.it
Have never seen that address before.
