1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    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."

    Wow.

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

    My 5-blade razor is better than my 3-blade razor. [​IMG]

    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.

    I saw them in H. Herzfeld. Nice ties, but nothing that would make you want to run out and find them (nor pay the 3 figure price tag).

    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...

    Chuck Norris can create a 60 fold tie just by one karate chop to the silk.
