    During my tour of Naples Salvatore led me to EG Cappelli - we were greeted by Patrizio and after a short tour of the operation (it consists of three to four small rooms filled with ready made ties and stacks of silks) I got straight to work choosing silks. I settled on six; 3 madders, 1 jacquard, 1 grenadine, and 1 printed. All 8 cm wide. If I wasn't so hungry I would have probably picked 6 more. I felt that the fabric choices were first rate with some extremely unique available that you wouldn't find at a place like Marinella. Well worth the visit if your in the area.

    Holy resolution size, Batman! Not all of us have 24" monitors.

    Another reason to come to New York - you can meet Mina and see all of Cappelli's fabrics for the season, and have a handmade tie delivered in three weeks.

    Samples - larger than life

    Which option do you usually go for when you meet with Mina? I met her 3 weeks ago for a tie and went with the 7 fold option for 140 euros. Im thinking now I should have went for a higher one =(

    This is the true Soporific Tie Porn thread. Gorgeous stuff. Looks like combination of Marinella-esque fabric and Rubinacci-esque construction--can't get any better than that.

    Speaking of Marinella, did you drop by?

    I like the look of his labels.

    Not the schlocky designs of say, Isaia.

    Quite colourful. Italians only ever seem to wear blue ties.

    Very fun post, whnay.

    Hope you had a chance to pop over to Capri or the Amalfi while you were down there (two of my personal favorites).
