    I'm getting dizzy trying to count the folds. How thick is it?

    A ten fold is hardly soporific.

    That's only true if it's some Ulturale style tie with a talisman or a scent phial under the zillion folds.
    The navy one I didn't wear was actually a 10 fold as well [​IMG] .

    What's wrong with the shape?

    It's just a personal thing. I like tie blades who gain width consistently. Sharp bends in the sides from a sudden change in width look odd to me.

    I much prefer wedge-shaped ties to bottle-shaped ones.

    The latter are IMO terrible for FIH knots, unless you are fond of small knots with proportionally wider blades, that is.

    I too prefer a wedge but that is a very classic shape and looks very nice when worn. Its not as attractive laying flat. Also, we didnt see a pic of the tip, but depending on their age, these may only be lined to the beginning of the tip. Many vintage Brooks are like that. And +1 on the FIH, looks awful, not enough substance for it to look good.
