    My personal preference is a 3-fold unlined with handrolled edges.

    If you don't like the "see-through" effect that happens when you get an untipped grenadine then it works just as well to have it silk tipped, NOT self-tipped (in the same fabric) as I think it just becomes too bulky.

    Personally I like a meaty knot, so I prefer the five fold self tipped versions.

    I went with the three fold lined as a trial. Will order more if the tie is satisfactory.

    I love ordering things. It's like christmas :embar:

    Does anyone have any experience with his cashmere ties? He recommends unlined, but I have a feel that I prefer a bulkier knot than the average man.

    He uses a quite heavy lining by default on his 3-folds, which has an amazing drape and makes a perfect knot, with the right amount of bulk. I can see why he recommends unlined on meatier ties.

    Just recieved my tie. Impressed with all aspects of his business, aside from maybe his photos of the material. Will certainly order again.:slayer:

    I can't visit the shop, but Patrizio is great to work with via email. He took several photos of fabrics for me that aren't online, and he sent me other photos of ones that are online under other lighting. Tracking says they'll arrive tomorrow!

    I find that the 3-fold lined grenadine has a thick and sturdy knot. Suitable for thick flannel jackets. For spring and summer I might request five fold unlined.

    I didn't see mention of this anywhere else, so please note that the "buy five for free shipping" deal does not apply to Outlet ties. I asked about it at checkout since I didn't see any discount applied to my order, and Patrizio was kind enough (too kind, really!) to refund my shipping but add a new disclaimer to his site noting that the deal only applies to custom ties. I guess I'm the only cheapskate to have bought 5 Outlet ties at once!

    Been to Cappelli today. The store was quite easy to find thanks to Unbelragazzo's directions (even though Rubinacci is no longer at Via Filagieri and the Spada store is now a different brand I don't remember (Borrelli or Cucinelli?). Patrizio is a really nice guy. Unfortunately, I'm a very shy person, and my spoken English is pretty bad, so I didn't talk to him as much as I would have liked; and I didn't feel comfortable snapping any pictures, besides one of the courtyard where the store is located.
    I settled on two madders, two challis and two pocket squares. Might get one or two more ties if I have enough money left before I leave!

    Just a heads up to fellow Canadians planning on making an order: I got hit with a $120 tax/duty bill (on $350 worth of ties...). I thought it was an error but I checked the cbsa calculator and I guess we just have ridiculous tariffs on apparel. :censored:

    Well, yet another reason to plan a trip to Naples...

    Geez, I couldn't help it - got two more challis ties. That's six ties and two pocket squares. Some people from here make bigger orders, but they're probably not as poor as me. I'm crazy.

    Patrizio was extremely friendly once again, which makes spending so much money a pleasure [​IMG]

    I have a few three fold lined cashmere which worked out great. just feel unlined cashmere ties would loose it's shape rather quickly.

    I was expecting them around next week, but here they are... all wool challis, minus the one to the left on the second row, which is madder.
