Tdial - interesting. If you have access to a scanner or can get a closeup I'd love to see it better.

I have seen many wonderful iterations of the seven fold, but maybe it is only a matter of taste and location? Marinellas, and Kiton amongst others. As for a tie being worn as 'business' attire, many tie wearers are not in the usual 'business' field, and thus have more liberty to play around with textures and patterns.Most of the 7-folds I've seen are ugly, with the exception of Chuck's. I'm not sure that the designers remember that these ties are generally meant to be worn with a suit as business attire.
I on the other hand find some of Talbott's 7 folds quite exquiste, granted not an everyday tie, but colour, pattern, and execution are meticulous. Yes, many of their ties are too baroque or overly busy (such as watermarked wovens)... but the skill required to make the patterns is something to be marvelled. I would pick one of Talbott's 7 fold over most of the boring repps or neat prints any day.I have to add here that I think Talbott's 7-fold series are truly some of the ugliest designs I have seen (although a few are nice). Do they do this to try to show that these ties are exceptional? A poor way to accomplish that.
