    I was at a shop that sells (at least from the attitude of the salespeople) high end ties. Enquired if a rather thick looking one was a seven fold and lo and behold, it was confided that seven folds are out of style!

    Could it possible have something to do with that they did not have seven folds in stock ---- NAAAAAHHHHH

    OK folks, you heard it here, send me those out of style seven folds and I will send you a picture of the bonfire I made with them. Near term future appearance of seven folds on ebay is a mere coincidence.

    How does a fold of a tie, go "out of style?" Not to mention possibly the most expensive method of creating a tie..

    Retards.

    Some may consider them out of fashion but they will never be out of style as long as people of style wear them well.

    Seven folds never go out of style.

    I guess this means Chuck and Jill will start their 90% off sale soon. [​IMG]

    VintageGent, do you want my three CFs? They are thick 7-folds that make enormous knots. As they are now out of style I obViously need to rid myself of their wily siren song [​IMG]

    Double three folds are what the right crowd is wearing this season.

    So if I remove a fold from my 7-folds I'll be with the IN crowd?
    OH YES! World, prepare yourself for the new improved double-threefold tie-wearing Stelio!

    Well most of ties are 4 folds. There are a lot cute 4 folds ties are out there. I do find that the fabrics being used for 7 folds ties are not as cute as 4 fold ties. It just could be that more production of 4 fold ties. Regardless, I am hooked on 7 fold ties as well. Big knot really goes well with my broad frame.
