The best Neapolitan ties - Page 3

post #31 of 49
Marinella for today


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

Cross post for Cappelli thread but I thought that it is appropriate here also:

I was in Naples a few months ago and picked up these Cappelli ties. The store is very difficult to find, even with an address. It's in a courtyard between two streets. The service is excellent, Patricio and the saleslady are very helpful. I'm very happy with the purchases.

Black 3-fold. To be worn exclusively at funerals. Unfortunately, I'm reaching the age where many of my friend's parents (and my own father) are passing away.

Maybe my new favorite summer tie.

A close cousin to the second tie but I like the combination of blue and brown very much.

Self-tipped six-fold tie for evening engagements.

Three-fold burgundy grenadine tie. Very versatile.

When the rest of my outfit is speaking loudly, this three-fold tie should whisper quietly but with something interesting to say.

And a crosspost from the Marinella thread posted here for the same reasons:

Here are my recent purchases after a trip to Naples. The small storefront is near the water but the real goods are behind the storefront in a much larger store located in the courtyard. You can't just walk around the store browsing. A salesperson needs to assist you. I didn't like that at first but the salesperson assigned to me was very helpful, knowledgable and spoke Spanish well. She was not pushy and gave me a lot of time to browse without feeling like I was wasting her time. Here is my haul:

I'm not one to be very bold with ties. This is about as crazy as I get. Self-tipped three fold.

A staple: Navy grenadine in a three fold construction.

A tie that will make an excellent transition between work and an evening social engagement.

I like this tie with navy suits.

Another tie for evening social engagements.

And finally a great summer tie. It is reversible but I'll wear it so that both blades (hence both colors) will be visible with linen suits.

And my final crosspost. I promise.

I returned from a recent trip to Naples and was very impressed with Cilento. It is criminally under-appreciated. This may have something to do with it being quite far from the center of the commercial district. In fact, I stumbled upon it in search of a pizza joint nearby. I bought a few items which I'll post here but my favorite is with my USA tailor who is adjusting the sleeve length of a reversible rain jacket lined with loden cashmere. I'll post that when available sometime in February/March. But for the time being here are a few other items:

Six-fold self-tipped. There is a tactile difference between this silk and that of my other ties. I cannot really describe it other than to say that if feels more substantial.

This was a tie that they gave me as a present. They learned that I was a lawyer and they have ties specific to many professions. The motif here is worn on the robe of Italian barristers (not sure if this was done historically or done currently).

I'm not sure what to call this other than the bastard child of a cravat and a scarf. It is made of whisper thin silk and worn around the neck to protect against the cold. I haven't worn it yet and probably will not wear it often but I'm really looking forward to the right occasion to do so.

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.

Thank you very much, QuarantaLocatel. On my next visit I will most certainly stop by to see you.

http://www.styleforum.net/t/478438/zampa-di-gallina-official-affiliate-thread/0_20

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....

Mark

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

 

Regards,

Mark

You won't be disappointed with Cilento. It may very well be my favorite men's store on the planet.

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.

Thanks for the information. So Cilento and Marinella use very similar construction technique. You prefer Kiton (they make their own I assume) as they are handmade. Who else in Napoli makes their own handmade ties? Capelli? Quarantalocatelli?

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.

I think that I understand your reply but I'm not certain. Are you saying that Kiton is the only Naples-based tie-maker that you are familiar with that makes ties in the artisinal manner by hand?

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)
