    Sorry I missed this thread last week!

    Our construction is inspired by those great Neapolitan brands...and I like to think make up a very similar knot.

    No, sir. This suit has the longest standing in my closet, and it's actually the only suit I purchased new. It's about ten years old.

    Nothing wrong with a good jacquard. Drakes current line-up doesn't feature any.

    Printed neats are for igent sissies. :D

    In my experience knits sometimes need to be narrower than other ties, else the knot can be huge. It's yet another characteristic which can sometimes make them easier to fit into casual outfits.

    Everything depends on the construction, of course. Buying knits sight-unseen over the net can be treacherous: the measurements are less reliable as an indication of ultimate knot size.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    Ha I bought the last one (cantarelli cashmere) a couple weeks ago. $35 shipped with coupon code. I love it but haven't worn yet.
