Anyone else receive a Carlo Franco Tie Summer Sale e-mail?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I got an email from Carlo Franco about a summer tie sale.

I thought they were out of business.

Anyone else get such an e-mail?

Anyone know if they are still selling stuff?

I got it too. Interesting to see the promise of a new collection.

I tried buying a tie.

Couldn't get through the checkout process. (Wouldn't direct me to paypal.)

Hmmm.

(EDIT)

Jill contacted me.

Looks like they're still in business.

She's taking care of the paypal glitch.

Looking forward to more Carlo Franco ties. The Carlo Franco ties I have already are the most beautiful ties I've ever seen, and I've always been sad that I couldn't ever get any more.

I can't believe people are still looking to order from them. What next? Beaman suits become the new favorite?

 

Fwiw, I always found CF ties to be quite garsh and tasteless. I doun't doubt that the construction was top-notch, but the designs were ghastly.

Garish? Tasteless? really?

Some of their designs are brighter and could be described as garish I suppose. Many of them, however, are pretty conservative and classic.



Do you find this example to be "garish" or "tasteless?"

Here's another one I own. Not quite as subdued as the one above, but hardly garish.

I got an email too. At first I thought my email account was hacked.

Is 3 years enough ?

Those ties are ugly, what is the appeal? What am I missing?

If you think the ties are ugly, then there's no appeal. I think they are beautiful (some of them, anyway,) and the lined 7 fold construction is terrific. I own ties from other high-end makers, and the Carlo Franco quality is equal to or surpasses all others.

It looks like a lot of the styles have sold out, as the choices on their web site appear to be dwindling rapidly.

I will be interested to see their new fall collection.
