Instead of starting a new thread, I thought that I'd resurrect this one as it contains some valued opinions on Marinella ties (before the thread digressed into a Manton versus FNB fight).
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.
