    Are these posts related? Since when is Drake's made in Germany? Which two factories make stuff in Italy?

    Yes they are related. I bought a Drake's knit tie from Mr. Porter about two weeks ago. It is made in Germany.

    Trust me on this.


    Hermes and Charvet also produce knit ties in Germany.
