Opps. I always forget the name of the dept. store a few meters down. Starts with a "W" though. Anyways, the only way to get their true ties is in Napoli?

That, I don't know.

While the ties upload, do you do any bespoke from Savile Row tailors, or do you deal only with Neapolitan tailoring? Can I ask why if so? (I'm trying to find my voice - if you will - in clothing)

No need...I posted photographs of the two types of Kitons that I have seen in another thread.

If yours differs, though, it would be great if you did take a photograph.

I should have looked closer at the brands you listed in the thread. It really is the complete guide afterall. I apologize if you mentioned this in the other thread but any idea of the age of the unique Kiton?

Oh, sorry. Well, I was late and posted them anyways. Hope that's somewhat helpful.

Which tailors do you go to for your suits/shirts, if I may ask?

Hah! I have more, and hope to add one of yours at some point.

The untipped wool Kiton with the handkerchief edges is fairly recent...maybe a year or two.

Not doubting anybody. I know next to nothing on sartorial elegance. Like I said, I'm trying to find my place.

Bespoke items are Edwin DeBoise/Steed, others a range of MTM/RTW stuff from my past, mostly Oxxford, Brioni, Barbera, etc.

Shirts...I'm still mulling over what's next, but most of what I have is Neapolitan RTW: Borrelli, Kiton, and Barba.

The learning never stops or at least it shouldnt. I didnt think Kiton had made any true 7-folds as my tie maker called the lined 6-fold pattern I sent her a 7-fold and she had worked for Kiton in the past. Thats why I was interested in knowing how old Voxs tie was.

After having a horrible trip with the start of it being mugged by city workers in Napoli, I'm inclined not to believe a damn word from anybody down there, especially a good PR house. Well, they are all good at "upping" things. That's their niché - but they don't have to barter.

I like your ties, wish you could make something that was stolen on an SBB train over the summer for me. I really LOVED that time (was Hermes). Sigh.
