Through a friend of mine with contacts at Sozzi / Sorley in Milan I can order knitted zig-zag ties (exactly like the ones sold by e.g. Rubinacci and The Armoury) or regular knitted silk ties in any of the following colors There is a minimum order of 20 ties in total and 4 ties per color and pattern. Price is EUR 50 + shipping. My friend is checking shipping rates and whether he can deduct the Dutch VAT (21%) for any non-EU customers. This post is to see whether there is enough interest so that we can meet the minimum order. Please PM me if interested with colors and pattern you would like. Please bear in mind I am not running a shop, have a daytime job and a family, so there may be some delay in responding.
