We are proud to announce our collection of lined six-fold ties and cashmere ties handmade in the United States. Our last batch of ties was made in Italy, but we are pleased to move production to America -- with the exception of the knit ties. Kindly take a gander: Knit ties Our knit ties are made in Italy and I feel they are among the best knit ties in the world. They are made of very thick yarn, which makes the knit texture more apparent and produces a great crunchy sound when pulled. In the above photo, compare the Nick Hilton tie (left) to ours. The difference in the size of the yarn is obvious, and our tie even stands off the ground more. All knit ties are $75 and 2.5" wide. Medium blue Navy Brown Pink All knit ties are $75 and 2.5" wide.

The tie billed as a sevenfold by most of the Italian brands (Kiton, Borrelli etc.) is actually a lined sixfold. The lined sixfold is a better constructed necktie in most people's opinion. A true sevenfold tends to crumple at the tip, wrinkles like hell in the knot area, and lacks the weight to drape well.
I assume by six-fold Will means the same thing that I have always heard termed double-four-folds. I too prefer this construction and most of my "seven folds" are in fact double fours. These are made from two pieces of silk, not one (a typical tie is made from three), and are lined and tipped.
From a practical point of view lined six-folds are much more popular as they tend not to wrinkle as much and have a nice solid feeling. We make both daily (as well as standard three-folds and other constructions) so I am neutral. Although my personal preference for most silks is a lined six-fold construction.
