B, you are (as always
When I visited borrelli last year they told me they only make a true seven fold on special request from a given client. It is not a standard run item. The bulk of the run was just plain old common tie making and not even "double four" or "six fold".
I did buy one true seven fold Borrelli in Rome, it has a very thin liner and is a lovely tie with great silk.
Felix, the funny thing about all this is, have you ever had a chick flip your tie over and gasp in horror as she discovers it is not a seven and storm out of dinner? or maybe the bigger question is, have you ever had a chick at all...........

One of the best kept secrets in all of men's fashion is now readily available to any college student willing to plunk down $60 for their big day at the career fair. I felt like I was going to be sick. Five years ago, the only two makers of 7-folds that were readily available were from Kiton or R. Talbott. Not anymore, now you can go to Dillards and get one!
I take solace in the fact that they haven't yet besmirched the exclusivity of the 9-fold, of which I proudly own several from the Private Stock label. Alas, it is only a matter of time until that too can be found at K-Mart during their blue light special.
