    a few months ago
    when i was visiting
    cappelli in napoli
    we were browsing
    his archives
    and admiring the
    past offerings
    of
    holiday and brown
    adamley
    and
    david evens

    there was a particular
    david evens fabric
    that was quite nice
    it was a floral neat
    in a fresh but still
    muted and elegant
    colour
    it was printed
    on a hopsack woven
    silk

    [​IMG]

    i thought that
    it was a very
    alternative for
    a warm weather
    tie
    and wondered if
    it could be remade.

    i contacted adamley
    since they own the
    archives of david evens
    along with the blocks
    and screens
    and cappelli sent a small
    cutting of the fabric

    i was told that it
    can be remade
    using the same screens
    in the same colours
    however
    the hopsack fabric
    is no longer available
    but
    adamley suggested
    their panama weave
    as a good alternative
    it has a nice crisp
    hand and would also
    be a good base
    for the print

    [​IMG]


    i discussed with
    cappelli about
    reissuing this print
    in various colourways
    as we did with
    the grenadine
    special run
    he was open to
    the idea
    as long as we
    get the numbers
    to meet the minimums.


    adamley prepared
    some colourways
    and i was informed
    the minimum was
    6mt per colour.
    i am poasting
    them here to see
    if there is sufficient
    interest in recreating
    this design of david evens

    as before
    @C&A is the
    person to contact
    for further questions

    the ties will
    be made by cappelli
    as per the usual pricing
    on his site
    if you want to do
    it in a one piece
    7 fold
    it can also be done
    like some of his ties
    on his site

    i am particularly interested
    in options 1, 3, and 4

    nb option 1
    is the exact same colour
    according to adamley
    it just looks different since
    it is a rendering
    and not printed
    option 2
    is the inverse colours

    Of teh
    Blue and teal shades
    Is very nice

    The apparition of these patterns from the past;
    Petals on a crisp, silk ground.

    I have an ancient thirst for these silks. Crisp petals indeed

    1 & 3 would be my favourites as well. I assume the ties can be made up to individual specs?

    Yes individual specs just like any Cappelli tie. Pricing exactly the same as for his other ties as per his webshop.

    I will summarize where we stand today or tomorrow. There are also some potential participants on the Dutch forum. We need a 6 meter minimum per colourway.

    Appreciated mr. P-K-L.

    I advise colourway 2 for Andrey and for him get a matching pocketsquare too.
