    Hi, all. New to this thread.
    Anyone have a view of the differences between the two blue donegal-like offerings:
    http://www.patriziocappelli.it/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1043{2}13{1}1{3}21{4}57
    http://www.patriziocappelli.it/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2301{2}13{1}1{3}21{4}57
    (@DaveSmith - I think the second one is the donegal you picture above, no?)

    Ideally, I'd like something that could pull double duty with tweeds and with flannel separates. (And that can replace the aging navy wool that I have)

    Also, though I've selected a few outlet ties, I'm still short on the number of ties to get free shipping. Anyone in the USA willing to pool an order?

    I may have misunderstood you, but outlet ties don't qualify for free shipping.

    I know, that's my point. I was wondering if anyone wanted to tag team my order so that we had enough non-outlet ties to qualify. But I decided I couldn't wait anyway....:embar:

    Wow! I'm assuming these are just samples for what he has or had. I can see a tie that's no longer available on his website.

    One day, over a nice drink, I'll tell you some stories...

    There are boxes and boxes aside from what is on show and then you have the bespoke fabrics. It's endless. The amazing thing is, Patrizio has the patience and doesn't mind you taking your time and opening every box he has.

    I visited Patrizio today in the atelier and had a great time...spent about an hour and a half there.

    Ordered a bunch of ties for the winter season wool/cashmere/madder/challis...all in different types of constructions.

    also picked up two otr 5 folds as xmas gifts...

    he has an amazing selection of fabrics for bespoke choices...though if you are not looking for bespoke you shouldn't be discouraged because he has hundreds of ties already made up in 3 and 5 folds in both 8cm and 9cm widths in all types of materials...

    i especially liked looking through his wool/cashmere/tweed selection....tons of great selection...and some really amazing choices that i don't recall seeing online.

    if you are in Naples it is well worth the visit...

    will post pics in about 2 weeks once my ties are done being made.

    This is the only Cappelli I picked up that he already had made up in stock...

    It is a 3-fold wool/cashmere unlined...still available as a bespoke on his website.

    If you are thinking about getting a wool/cashmere/tweed tie from Patrizio...I highly recommend 3-fold unlined. This is what he recommended to me...and they tie awesome. The material is weighty on its own and does not need a lining...and certainly not 5 or 7 fold.

    Click the photo to zoom on the tie for a close up.

    It's beautiful. What about a group shot of the ties you purchased? :D

    They are all bespoke so you will have to wait until they are made.

    Oh, I thought you had already received all the ties. Misunderstanding. Looking forward to see the ties.

    And btw, I like your shirt collar.

    Anybody here who has both 7-fold ties from Cappelli and Sam Hober? I just find it interesting that their methods of doing a 7-fold are different. Anybody else noticed this?

    Edit: Ok, now I'm confused. How is the number of folds in a tie counted? From what I read, you count the number of creases used to fold a tie. Patrizio's 7-fold ties have 12 creases with 7 "flaps." Four flaps on one side, the other has three. I compared it to Sam Hober which has 7 creases with the "flaps" overlapping each other. I can't completely open up the Sam Hober tie as its construction doesn't allow it to open similarly to Cappelli's but from what I can see, there are 5 "flaps."
