It's true that Drake's exports plenty, including to Italy. But I'd be surprised if those polka dots, for instance, find their way to Italy. But I could easily see Holdfast, or TTO, or Barima, who are SF members in England, wearing those ties. Meanwhile, Marinella counters look like this: http://www.styleforum.net/t/305059/lightbox/post/5550700/id/418403 Some Cappelli ties are a little more exuberant, and might include something similar to the madders at Drake's, but nothing like those polka dots. Cappellis are also obviously constructed much differently.
