    . . . Marinella uses English silks, and . . . are a bit on the too classic side . . . .
    This sounds appealling. Â Has Marinelli a website?
    http://www.marinellanapoli.it/eng/index.asp Not a whole lot there but some info. Domenico Vacca should have them though I dont know for sure. JJF
    Bergdorf had a nice selection of Marinella's the last time I was there. koji

    None of your designs has spoken to me yet, although I'll give 'em a try when one does. Loved the scarves, by the way, but there's not much call for those in Houston. [​IMG]

    It sometimes seems that the Talbott people try to cram every expensive and difficult fabric production technique known to man in the silks that they use on their seven-fold ties. The results are sometimes, well, exuberant, but there are some that work very well.

    Nonsense on the scarves.... i find that sometimes one is better off with two or three scarves than a sportcoat or even a shirt...Sort of like a toga look... Hey... cant blame me for trying can ya? [​IMG] JJF

    I don´t know about that.
    What I know is that many (Trump among others) have tried to convince the Marinella family to expand the businness and open shops in other parts of the world.
    To my knowledge, nobody has succeeded so far.
    There is a sort of tradition for all the most rich and powerful persons of Italy to take trips on a regular basis to Naples to get their ties. Of course, this does not necessairily mean anything about the quality of the above mentioned ties.
    Despite not being particularly rich nor powerful, I own some Marinella and I am happy about them but I must say, I like traditional ties.
