    From what I gather now, it really depends on the the tie maker's interpretation on how many folds a tie has. Referencing PCK1's 5-fold ties posted above, if we go by the method of counting the flaps rather than the creases, then those ties are only 4-fold. For me, as long as I'm satisfied with quality of the silk and construction, it doesn't matter how they interpret these 7-fold, 5-fold, etc. I just wanted to know if there is a definite answer and seems there isn't.

    What material did you use for this blazer? Seems like the ideal winter twill.

    Some beautiful stuff in that store - perhaps 2015 will bring me an umbrella and a few Cappelli ties.

    Spectacularly innovative use for, what I strongly suspect are offcuts of silk.

    Anyone try this site yet - I tried to pick up a pair and pay via paypal but it kept giving me an error message (I was reluctant to use my credit card).

    I'd not gotten that far, thanks for the info. I'd be cautious too regarding using the plastic.
