Sorry for a newbie tie question. But when a Calabrese tie says lighter interlining for a softer knot does that mean it won't tie a substantial knot?

And is there any way to get expedited shipping to receive by Christmas if you're in Canada? The only option I see is UPS Ground.

Just wished the pockets of the NR Moscow were lined in the wool shearling or other lining. Hard to believe a warm pocket lining was a detail seemingly overlooked. I don't always have gloves on me.

Gents, appreciate the Calabrese knots. Would they rank same, below or above Drakes?

I am debating between this Calabrese (1st) and Drakes (2nd):

They're different ties, and Calabrese seems consistently softer and lighter.  I don't think either "outranks" the other. 

 

Of the two selections you provided, my vote would be the Calabrese all the way.  What's the context, though?  Suits or sport coats?  CBD or more freewheeling?

FWIW that Drake's looks incredibly dated and just plain busy.

Not really, no.  It's a very tasteful classic Macclesfield woven but some strange strands of SF mythology have been shunning silk woven ties for a few years now, even though they're staples of well dressed CBD men in London & Milan.   I understand the dislike for shiny wovens a la Charvet, or some of the strange wovens seen in Japanese department stores, but classic Macclesfield ties are good additions to a tie collection
