Regardless of what happened - one must admit that the ties were sick good.
I have four Carlo Franco ties. And while they're nice ties in many ways, longevity has not been their strong suit. Each has developed snags (very Charvet-like) and one just about completely came apart on the third wearing.
I'm not particularly hard on my ties. Most are still going strong after several years of regular use. The Carlo Francos are at the bottom of the durability list.
