Anecdote: As you may or may not know, Marinella is Silvio Berlusconi's preferred tie maker. This particular one is from his personal collection.

About the square foulard, if it's at least 140x140 cm, you can dress in the winter like a normal scarf...
About how, I suggest to check here:
You did a great job and your visit in Naples was really productive...
I like the tie you said "Maybe my new favorite summer tie"...
Next time come visiting us, too. You are very welcome.
Zampa di Gallina
...an interesting shop online about the neapolitan tailoring brands...
I was trying to buy some of the shirts and ties they carry but unfortunately they don't carry Maria Santangelo slim fit in the designs I like.... I find it interesting that I needed to look on a website for a company based in France for certain Italian brands. They also have some fantastic options for Anna Matuozzo with choice of fabric. Just out of my comfort zone for pricing since I have never tried Anna.
Didn't mean to hijack the tread.... carry on....
Thank you for posting all the tie pics. Conservative but you got to wear what you like. Interesting about Cilento. One of the reasons I am on this forum is to find these high quality not well known brands. The only problem is accessing them from the US.
Next stop for me...... www.quarantalocatelli.it
Great silks, but thick polyamide interlining and are made by machine with the Liba machine as Marinella does nowadays, ( see on most of their ties, are not symetrically placed the motives, due to fastly made by machine, not true by hand as Kiton or others do.
The shop is awesome, you are right, best Carlo Riva selection of the world I think, great shoes as well.
All those you mention but Kiton and the last one who I do not know, do change of factory every time or even got several real tiemakers doing for them at once. The thing they do is to chose the silks and get others make their product, like Armani or similar not loved on this forum one.
That is an arthisan vs. a fashion brand thing.
You do realize you are asking someone @SartodiNapoli who sells and makes handmade ties, if they know of someone who makes hand made ties : )
Not the only one, the alta sartoria brands as Attolini or Borrelli got their ties made by hand as well, others do not as I mentioned some, especially the one who is ironically know as the per se Neapolitan tie brand, who is just that, a brand. ( But on the bespoke commisions). ( You mentioned the name priorly)
