I'm considering modifying a Cappelli order I placed a few hours ago. I've been playing around with the angle the fabrics will be cut on.

See poll. Discuss.

What makes you dislike C and D? Is it the rectangular shape of the icons? (Claghorn expressed a similar concern)

What makes this "necktie geometry?"

 

Is it the pattern you're asking about?  If so, should we try to ignore the colours? 

 

I'm not sure what you're asking.

 

Cheers,

I believe I made it quite clear in my OP what I'm asking. (Angle the fabrics are cut on)

In case you can't make out from the pictures, the ones on the right are cut on a relative 45 degree angle compared to the originals on the left

These degree changes affect the look of the tie, hence the "study in necktie geometry" biggrin.gif

Yes, you did.  Sorry.  Missed that somehow.  My apologies.

Well B was my all around favorite.

Wouldn't let me vote, but I like A&D. Couldn't tell you why.

post #12 of 29
B and D for me.

B and D are much more satisfying in terms of the geometry of the pattern. However, I don't much like the base colour of D (and C) as it appears here - it seems murky rather a rich deep hue, although it's difficult to tell properly on screen.

Excellent idea (and a good way to address the point I brought up about overly rectangular florets). I think C vs D is pretty clear cut as in C the florets don't just look like rectangles--they are rectangles. A vs B is a bit tougher, and I'd say A is still nice because those don't look too rectangular at this distance, but B is definitely better.

 

As far as the angle of the cut, in both B and D, the florets don't lead your eye straight across as they do in A and C. This is outside the way in which the florets themselves are shaped, but still a factor.

 

Too bad we don't have an example of rectangular florets cut at a diagonal.

A and D because Napoli, thats why.
