I saw a 7-fold tie today by Arnys, very similar to Talbott's 7-fold. Â No lining or tipping, just hemmed. Â Actually, the Arnys tie I saw was not not really hemmed. Â The edges were almost rolled(much narrower than Talbott's hem), like a pocket square. Â I think(memory's a little hazy on this detail) that it had saddle stitching down the middle. I made a stop at Brooks Brothers in Chicago. Â I asked if they have seven fold ties. Â Not a single salesperson had a clue of what a seven fold tie is. Â One seemed to think that "seven fold" is a brand, saying, "We only carry Brooks Brothers ties." I also saw some Kiton pocket squares. Â They were in a box, and though I didn't count how many there were, there were tags, which read $115, on each pocket square. Â Is this possible, for a pocket square to cost $115? Has anyone been to Morris and Sons in Chicago? Â What kinds of merchandise do they carry, and by which companies? Could anyone comment on the quality of Arnys shirts and suits(they do bespoke as well)? How are they compared to Charvet and other companies? Are Arnys products(shirts, ties, etc) made in France or outsourced to Italy or somewhere else?
