    several months ago
    i was introduced to teh
    owner of 'passagio cravatte'
    another maker of bespoke ties
    who specialises in 'brighter'
    prints and wovens with a 'vintage feel'

    i initially ordered a grenadine
    and a soft italian cashmere regimental
    however there was a problem -
    the cashmere was made up
    in an unlined 7 fold....
    .. and the fabric was not suited
    for such a construction - it tended
    to open up.
    so it is now being remade
    as a 4 fold unlined.

    the owner also had a few
    vintage silks and wools
    which i subsequently ordered
    and received.

    back of the vintage wool in what he calls
    '7 fold unlined'
    which only has the wool interlining
    around the neck

    construction is all very well done
    except for the initial cashmere
    i ordered.

    I'm not a fan of unlined constructions really, but some of those fabrics are delicious. The middle two especially.

    never odd or even
    

    Confirming suspicions that you must be physically aroused by clothing in order to get into the inner circle. I will never look at seven folds the same way again.

    T4 - I'd love to see that cashmere in person - it looks very unique.

    So, at the blade it has 7 fold, but the middle has like... 10 folds? I am losing count here.

    T4, wow, great ties.
    especially the cashmere check :drool:

    also, the blues in the fabric swatches...
