    E. Marinella’s shop is quite small. It looks out across the park towards the waterfront and its entrance is framed with imported English wood and Calabrian green marble. As soon as you walk in, there is a wrought-iron Liberty-style chandelier that hangs above your head and wooden display tables in front of you that hold an array of beautiful ties. Rep stripes and Macclesfield prints, all made in a rainbow of colors, are showcased alongside a small selection of watches, colognes, ashtrays, and leather goods. Everything here is essentially the same as it was in 1914, before the two world wars and three political regimes that Marinella has seen Italy go through.

    I own a few pictured above, bought at the store in Naples, and they are some of my favorite ties. Good quality control, too. When one of the ties had a small snag, the saleswoman apologized and quickly put it aside. They are also very good about giving discounts if you buy multiple things. Just get to the store well before 1pm. Italians are very serious about their siesta.
