Cappelli Ties: What's the Hoopla About?
Styleforum Top Picks
Cappelli and Marinella both make excellent ties. I have a preference for Marinella, as I find their construction and fabrics to be a bit more substantial (and I like a tie with some heft to it).
Cappelli, by contrast, specializes in a lighter, less constructed, often unlined tie with slightly more evidence of hand stitching throughout. (It will "show its seams" a bit more, and seem ever so slightly imperfect in that made-by-hand sort of way). The faintly rusticated, hand-made aesthetic is currently en vogue amongst the iGentry, and so it's no surprise that Cappelli is having its moment in the sun here.
That is very strange, I haven't had that problem with either of the cappelli ties I have recently worn. To the contrary, I've been very surprised that they almost naturally dimple more than any other tie I own (ranging from Drakes to Rubinacci to Hermes) and I'm quite fastidious about symmetrical, balanced dimpling since I'm most often wearing ties in court.
