    :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: .

    I keep asking myself why I didn't. Oh well, can't have everything.

    And I have a few nice ones arriving from the same source myself :bounce2:

    Everything looks good but I'd ditch the diagonal plaid. The pattern's widely spaced out so it visually widens the rest of your body. Not good.

    New arrivals from Gianni Cerutti at Passaggio Cravatte. As with the previous posters I am floored by the final product. Gianni is amazing to work with and has a seemingly endless supply of unique vintage and modern fabrics. He is an artisan truly dedicated to traditional methods of bespoke tie fabrication. Fabric selection was done via email with high resolution photo files. He works collaboratively with you to decide on construction based on your preferences and the fabric being used. Construction is impeccable and the end result is a work of art. The Vintage Garza is an example of the unique fabrics available, some in limited amounts enough for only one or two ties. This fabric was woven on looms that produced more narrow fabrics than today, hence the unique 7 fold construction in two pieces. My experience with Gianni was first rate and I can't wait to work with him again.

    All vintage fabrics, untipped, hand rolled and unlined except where noted.

    I apologize for the first four photos being less than spectacular as they were taken with an iPhone.

    Left to right:

    Navy ground wool/cashmere 7 fold
    Cashmere 7 fold
    Cashmere 4 fold
