1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    There's no description of the fabric or construction. Are they 3-fold and are the fabrics on the Cappelli site now or are they for you only?

    Three fold, self tipped. Material is in description. I'll ask @Dannefalk to add the construction.

    I think I have one of those, a lovely tie. The fabric was never on the Cappelli website and I expect the Skoak team has finished off the bolt.

    Patrik, clarification: the IG photo shows handrolling. Is Stock actually tipped?

    Great selection of staple colors with some nice patterned ties. The green HB especially would be lovely with any brown tweed.

    So I picked up a pair of Carmina Chelseas a couple of months back and for the first time have gotten around to cleaning/polishing them now that they have 4-5 wears under their belt.

    I then noticed this on one of the shoes, in the toe area and also (not as bad) on the side. Same issue, albeit not as bad, on the other shoe as well. Seems the upper was not stretched over the last properly, or something of the like. Not exactly sure but my main concern is if this will be a problem for longevity or in relation to durability/water getting into the welt.

    Should I be concerned or no?

    The ties from EG Cappelli that we have in stock are three fold and untipped. This was the recommendation from Patrizio Cappelli himself as the heavier fabrics falls in a certain way when untipped. They are all made by hand in Naples!

    As with most of the ties offered by Cappelli the amount of fabric to use is very limited, we might have, as stated above, finished off some of the bolts. [​IMG]

    Regards,

    Oliver

    No, but you can order it from the Core Collection without a surcharge. Lead time is about 4 months.

    My two recent Carminas also have this issue at the toe area.
