    thanks. I ordered 5 ties to get the free shipping. If I work at the knot enough, I can get a decent FIH, but I too found the lining very thick. I'll ask for a lighter lining on my next order.

    i've been ordering in 5+ batches to get the free shipping, but dropping $500 on an order of ties isn't exactly an easy purchase. i've also been getting burned with customs - only about $25 on my first order, but $50 on my most recent. i'm a little hesitant to have anything shipped by regular post from italy; lost a package a while back.

    anyway, i placed an order for the sky blue grenadine with murder ave. will report back once it gets here. the shop owner mentioned that he had some prints/repps/cashmere ties stocked as well, but no pictures yet. he also mentioned that he had something in the works for his first customers that bears with him while he sets up his shop, but didn't provide details

    The lighter lining is still very "springy", so it just makes a slightly smaller knot but other than that it feels very much like the thicker one. In either case I've found it helps creating a great looking knot that stays in place, instead of detracting from it.

    I just checked Linkson - great deal. Would pull the trgger in a flash if they had a dark brown linen.

    That's a pretty good deal! Brings it down to about $75 each shipped.

    forgot that this thread existed. murderavenue sent out a newsletter regarding a couple coupons. i think they were supposed to be for previous customers, but since i won't be taking advantage here are my codes:

    Could someone kindly tell me what the silk is like on Cappelli's striped ties? Is it the ribbed, heavier silk that one would expect in a club tie/school tie? Or is it smooth twill silk like their neats? Because I own a Marinella striped tie that is smooth like a neat, and I really hate it -- I don't want to make the same mistake with Cappelli.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a couple, and they're all ribbed. Don't know if that means anything though. Cappelli has a pretty big inventory, so it's probably best to clarify with them.

    Thank you. I thought I'd ask here first just in case there'd be a language barrier describing ribbed silk over email to Cappelli.

    I've never had trouble dealing with Patrizio. His English isn't perfect, but it's more than enough to understand.
    If it's still a concern, I think murder ave ties has a regimental stripe in stock. Maybe you can direct your question there

    I think the term you are looking for is a repp silk, which is what most regimental/school ties are made from. Thicker and ribbed like you described. Spoilered below, as these are just both mine I had on hand to illustrate

    Repp (or sometimes spelt reppe)

    Printed silk twill (or neat). Much thinner and softer, drapier fabric.
