    When I see these ties I picture a New Jersey coast.
    NJ doesn't have a coast.


    And even if it did, ties wouldn't be worn there.

    I have one CF tie, from the early days, and I think the quality is very good.

    Concordia's experience tracks with mine: I don't wear it that often, and less and less as time goes on. At the time, I thought it was the quietest and classiest one he offered, and it may well have been. Still, it's not quite in keeping with what I reach for first.

    New Jersey doesn't have a coast?

    Many villages along New Jersey's coastline facing the Atlantic Ocean are primarily summer-residents only.

    It was just a joke anyway, but I could swear Jersey has land near a shore.

    It was a joke meant to emphasive that Jerseyites say shore (as opposed to a
    New England coast or warmer climate beach).

    But your proof of Jersey's having a shore was priceless.

    I don't know if it's the pollution or the unmitigated awesomeness that requires a different word.

    I just googled Belmar (having never heard of it) and this is the first image. NSFW

    Yeah, the Jersey Shore is really great.

    I've got family in Pt. Pleasant, and Wall Township. And back when I was in HS(a long time ago), I had Syrian Jewish friends that had homes in Deal.

    I've always preferred the Jersey Shore to the Florida beaches.

    I spent a few summers in my youth (88-90) selling t-shirts on the boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ - 30 miles south of Atlantic City. It was (and probably still is) douchebag central, complete with the hot chicks, but I have many fond memories of that time and the crazy things you do when you're 18 and away from home [​IMG]

    Jeez, when you insult someone, you take no prisoners.


    BTW, after handling a CF tie, I really don't know what the hubbub was all about. Construction was relatively mediocre. Silk was mediocre. Designs were atrocious. This guy is probably using the same vendor so I'll feel the same way about these ties, except that some are not atrocious.


    I really liked the wool and cashmere ones. Have not seen many like them. Have a CF shirt. Very decent value on sale.

    Are European Women more classy than American Women?

    How do you 'Keep It Real?"

    Guys, by the way, that's not really a picture of me... but I'm glad that I could help start a Joisey love fest.

    Strangely, I could say exactly the same thing about Stuttgart during my 19th summer. God, I really should go back.[​IMG]

    Jersey Pride is strong. You can thank Dave Chapelle for the "Keep'in it Real" I love that skit.

    Since there seems to be a lot of confusion on here I thought I would clear a few things up.

    1. I have no affiliation to Carlo Franco
    2. It is possible we have used the same mill in Como for the silk but its highly unlikely.
    3. We do not use the same vendor for construction as I have an independent individual make all of the neckties.

    I hope this clears up a few of the questions here but if not feel free to email me any other questions you might have.

    Not sure how I missed this thread but I can assure you Napoli Coast has no affiliation or relationship with Carlo Franco. Despos & Soph can vouch for the fact that I am independent.
