    No $hit! I was looking at the Formosas on NMWA and was wondering how the quality is and the fit is. Do tell![​IMG]

    Unless I missed it, you guys don't suggest "yellow" ties for Coodals? I would guess they go well with all his navy suits.

    I DESPISE yellow ties! I make fun of my coworkers when they wear a blue shirt with a yellow tie. That look just disgusts me.

    I'm not talking bright obnoxious yellow but a soft yellow I don't think looks bad. But from the lack of it on these forums I believe I'm the minority in that opinion.

    something along these lines?

    Apologies for the Passaggio X post but wanted to share

    Gentlemen,

    I took delivery of a parcel from Italy today.

    On opening I have to say the contents took my breath away, please see below.

    I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for the way that Gianni runs his business. He runs it with a passion that is reflected in their craftsmanship.

    He is a pleasure to work with, always attentive and delivers the goods.

    I have one more tie to come and needless to say I will be ordering again.

    Gianni, Grazie, mille grazie

    Aargghh, too slim for me. I like a little wider tie.

    top friggin notch quality. fit will always depend on your body and the house cut, and the quarters are of a fairly extreme cutaway variety, but for the me the fit is awesome. best fitting RTW suits i have come across.
    they are superb. i have 2, the other being the lighter brown with blue medallions in my post. HIGHLY recommended.
    please do not buy this. i think i only have one tie that veers on yellow. might be the hardest color to be good for a tie. or for anything besides a banana for that matter.

    I don't plan on buying that one but I have a yellow tie at home that I'm quite fond of. I'll maybe post a pic later tonight.

    How are Henry Carter ties?
    looks like they are a little too skinny for me.
