Some of the finest and best in the world.

It has to be damn good if it made the RobbReport Best of the Best 2005.


They have a 11 fold tie...!

"Seven-fold neckwear"”which is made from fabric that is folded seven times"”has become the new measure of quality. But Dolcepunta designer Rolando Scapellato has surpassed the industry standard by developing the first 11-fold necktie, an achievement that is particularly impressive because he accomplished it without increasing the amount of silk, which would add weight and bulk to the tie."

Source RobbReport.

Wow.

I have two of them. I have had them for awhile. The construction and silk are great. They are two of my favorites

My 5-blade razor is better than my 3-blade razor.


Ties are disposable. There's no sense in building them to last. I can appreciate those who like the 7-folds for aesthetic purposes though.

Oh I hear you. Im positively buried in ties. I just gave my dad 20 ties I bought 10 years a go and never wore. Theyre too narrow for me.

pfft. 11-fold ties are so half-hearted. I'm waiting for Chuck's forthcoming 23-fold tie...
