    Does anyone have experience with this (Milanese) brand? Virtual Clotheshorse has a selection of very nice-looking ties from them, but never having encountered them in real life, I wonder about the quality. Their website is practically non-existent...

    Very nice and well made. In the same league as Borrelli/Kiton and they do the cool hand stitching at the tip on some of the ties.

    Not really -- fairly muted colours and patterns. They're on the slim side, but not problematically so. Many of the ones Lance has in stock are either Cashmere or wool. Just ordered a couple (thanks Ed!)...

    I have have a cashmere one that I got from ebay last year. I lucked out and got it for $20 or so, BNWT. I have never heard of Petronius at that time...I was just looking for a nice cashmere tie. The quality is great. I wouldnt hesitate to buy another one.

    Is there a sale or something coming up that needed a bump on 3 threads?

    three different threads about Petronius. Seems the forum is on a tie kick lately, and I just so happened to come across some of these amazing ties for the first time - you ever seen these Spoo? Equal to or better than Drakes!

    Spoo, you trying to buy out my stock of pink ties like you did with the Drakes? :slayer:

    here are some better photos of the pinks (hard to capture these pinks indoors) - as per the request of a members here.
