    What are you getting, Helden? Eric (and Helden), I recommend the wool/silk indigo herringbone I've sported above. Beautiful tie and perhaps Patrizio still has the fabric. I don't think it ever made it to his website.

    @heldentenor

    The silk versions you are asking about were a special run when Patrizio first got those fabrics. I asked for silk versions, given what I saw of Drake's versions in the last f/w season, and he generously obliged. I think they sold out quickly once the word spread here.

    A certain shoe store in SD still has the Drake's version in silk (I assume with silk from the same mill). The lights blues in the Drake's seem a bit more muted, so perhaps more madder like. I wear my silk version from Patrizio in spring/summer whereas I would wear the Drake's version more in the fall because of that difference in brightness.

    Thanks, Tweedy--I hope Patrizio does another run in those silks. I regret not jumping on the wine/burgundy in particular.

    Thanks also for the reference for where one can still find the silks. I'll grab the remaining one.

    I've often wondered why madder ties are offered in such limited pattern combinations, at Cappelli and elsewhere. I guess there is just one mill making all of this stuff. Is there a reason why?

    Not sure of my choices 100% yet, but the navy Glen plaid linen looks all sorts of gorgeous. I also quite like the darker color way of the checked piece WTL has above.

    Beautiful ties. Can I ask what make-up you went for in terms of folds and lining?

    Does Patrizio work off of pictures in terms of how we want a knot to look?

    In other words, can I just say make it look like Cezinho's lol?

    Just send him my picture or just say that you it like Cesar. He will know what to do for sure.

    Thanks

    Generally I think a lighter lining is what helps most to produce a great knot, because it facilitates a perfect dimple and generally makes the tie more malleable.

    A decent amount of width also helps give more space for a good dimple and produces a slightly "taller" knot, which fits really nice into a generous spread collar.

    Just my 2c.

    Yes...I sent him a picture of Cleav's knot and said: make it like that. Cesar's pics are, of course, are just as good.

    I think you guys are crazy if you think these "changes" are being reflected in an order you placed online. I don't think he is literally making most ties himself today, if any, and the idea that some incremental modification to the knot area is being sent to the factory strains credulity. I have numerous Cappelli ties of different linings, selected by him, some to awful results, some to fine results, and the knots are pretty much the same as those above on all of them. I've never given instructions or communicated beyond "nice ties, thanks."

    He made an adjustment on a wool tie for me, given my concerns about knot size using Cleavs pics as a reference. The tie is cut differently, slightly thinner where it should be but still ending in my preferred width at the front blade.

    I've always treated pics sent as identifying a baseline, to indicate the range/aesthetic. If you're looking for a tie in the same fabric as in pic and the dimensions are equivalent then that should do the trick. You'll just have the tie made in the same way as Cleavs or Cezinho's. Otherwise, I suspect that the main choice in production is not how the fabric is cut, but in the lining choices.

    That said, there's a limit to what can be done and what you say about the production process could be true. It's not likely that each of us has his own tie pattern. But using pics to convey what you want helps in the process.
