    I will wear it. It "replaces" the similar one I posted earlier in this thread, which unfortunately had a snag and was sent back. I was lucky to get something so close in both tone and pattern.

    The one the left I have been searching for a long time. I consider it the ultimate maroon/wine CBD tie. The one in the middle is just droolworthy.


    When you drool over a soporific tie, is it on your pillow?

    The center one is the ne plus ultra. The left one is great too. The right one may be too exciting.

    If you had not said Capelli, I would have said Drakes/Marinella/H&B. Not sure why I can't get into printed ties [​IMG]

    NorCal_1: that is a really fine selection. I'm envious, but getting there as far as my own tie-hangers go.

    Manton: the muted blue Cappelli tie really is something. Marinella is too mainstream (and they sinfully opened a shop in Milan, in the financial district no less!), Ulturale too showy, Cappelli really is old Naples.

    I used to not like them at all, either, but I have warmed to them over the years. However, I basically only like the most conservative designs from Drakes/Marinella/H&B/Cappelli. The rest still stuck. Hermes and Ferragamo and VV really, really suck.

    VV is a very, very sick joke. I like Drakes/Marinella/H&B. I have one print and it's an H&B. I wish we could kop Marinella woven's here in the states [​IMG]

    Your Capelli's are nice, I'll post a pic on my monotone, boring collection.

    I saw literally dozens of designs in the Cappelli swatch books that I could have ordered. The selection is superb, but it makes it difficult to narrow things down. There is very little that I just would never consider.

    Here is my stuff, my only print is the third from the left. The burgandy is for when I feel wild and crazy. My favorite is the one to the right of the burgandy.
