If you cannot tell your clients, it would be appreciated if you could tell us who you are, especially if you explain that some of a group of brands is using a Liba, and you don't tell who, and so you are slandering everyone... it's cheap.
If you know Napoli, you can come in our atelier in Via Domenico Morelli 55 and check our ties. You are very welcome.
We use a wool and a cotton inner parts, and, of course, our taylors are very good and make the ties by hand. But the tie is made by so many details, and we choose them with our personal taste, like we travel for chosing the design and the silk. We don't "just put the tag" like your clients (you wrote it), because we need to make any possible effort to create our own unique product. That's the hard mission of a luxury brand.
This is about us. About the other brands, we cannot know how they work, but we respect them.
I have said who uses it in other thread. If you can´t id a tie made out of Liba, as you said a 7 fold tie makes a better knot that a 3 fold, I am sorry to say you are not a real tailor and just a salesman who tries to sell over the internet, there is nothing bad about it, but when fake things are said, then I have to be here to defend the Neapolitan High Tailoring industry I am sorry to say you are not respecting as well as not respecting the readers saying them unreal things.
Everybody (the big Neapolitan names make the silk brands travelling to their doors on the contrary) on this industry travels to Suffolk and Como to chose their silks, I have done it in the pastas well, so that is not special, is just doing the proper job as it has to be done, so this point is not valid.
I only help foreign customers who already got too much sellers with any clue about High Tailoring trying to hook specially American and Asian clients saying fake things, selling fake things and giving fake prices, as all the forum knows I exposed and will continue exposing all the time I found a false argument.
The rest I won´t answer too, the people who surrounds me are the most respected and master of all Naples since several generations as well as considered the best alive as all the forum knows and also worked on most of those places, so I know from the first hand when they quit hand made to go outside of Naples on the mid 1990´s to save $ on each tie making them with the LIBA machine, ask your boss about, I am pretty sure he will teach you about.
Thanks for the invitation, I did not talk about your ties as I do not know them (and hope you get the best of luck), but the rest you recommended about best of Naples are actually just the contrary
, (then now you say you don´t know how do they work but recommended them before? ) How is that? That is my point
As me as humble person but the rest of the industry does not respect, as some of those brands disrespects the clients selling at the same high price a made by machine on seconds (that is luxury as you said, pricing an item as high as the buyer can pay, example all the fashion brands) than a real made by hand on hours(High Tailoring).
