    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Sorry for the necro, but I am also in the process of purchasing Ferragamo ties.

    One aspect that I see the greatest variation of is in the fond of the "Salvatore Ferragamo" on tie holder. I assume ones with clear and and thin fond are the real ones, because that's what I see in Ferragamo stores, and ones with chalk-like fond are fake. Or is that just a matter of year produced?

    Here's an example with clear label of letters.

    And here's one with "chalk-like" fond. The letters here also seem much fatter.

    ^^^ on the second tie look at the printed sig on the skinny end - it doesn't even say salvatore. it says "sabatore fovagamo" lol. plainly fake.

    I don't know where you got that from. But it's "l" and "v" that look like a "b" on Salvatore. But "Ferragamo" does look a bit funky

    Here's another one with "chalky" looking letters:

    But everything else seems legit....

    Here's one tip I've heard regarding both Hermes and Ferragamo: The silk texture/stripes should run vertical, not horizontal. I don't know the technical term for it, but if you zoom in on either ties (at least the legit ones), you should see that the silk goes in vertical stripes. (or at least somewhat vertical/a bit slanted)
