    That's interesting... What would you go for next time? a 3-fold unlined? or a 4/5/6/7-fold? Because the unlined ties I have are a little flimsy unless they're 6/7-fold. However, with Cappelli that pretty much doubles the price (€140).

    3-fold, but will try to specifically ask for a lighter lining.

    Ask for something still natural like a linen as opposed to wool, it works very well to still give the tie some drape and a good knot but gives a softer feel to the tie.

    I've spoken with him about this and I don't think it will happen anytime soon. Patrizio is definitely more artisan - less e-commerce retailer - and overwhelmed by the prospect of renovating his entire web-store and pictures. The amount of ties he stocks are part of the concern and I'm not sure if he's interested in cutting down his selection (or if a potential increase in business would be manageable). These are just my speculations from talking with him.

    When you think about it, he's only been online for about a year and the level of customer service and consistent quality is incredible.

    As for lining, I think the upgrade to "unlined" is worth it - especially for wools and linens.

    I think his website is actually pretty good and works quite well.

    After seeing all the great ties everyone's been getting from Cappelli I had to give it a try. I found the whole process to be great, website is very good, and order only took 2 weeks from order date to when I received the ties.

    All 3 are 7 fold Unlined. I'm incredibly pleased with the way they all turned out. Silk is very lightweight.

    Approx. 6.5 cm. I would say quality is on par with the Rubinacci and Drake's knitted ties I have. They may even have been made by the same company.

    It's very likely they were made by the same company. Patrizio was just starting to offer them last fall. He told me they're basically made on a machine that makes socks.
