    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.

    Antonio Muro is a small tie maker in Napoli, really fantastic to deal with. Doesn't speak a word of English!

    Every tie is made by hand the old fashioned way, each piece of silk is cut individually and lined, the ones I have all have hand rolled edges. Some of the finest silks I've come across and the construction and finishing is in the typical Neapolitan style, very rustic.

    Thanks. Most people on the forum prefer the unlined tip, lightly lined ties ("unlined" ties are typically lined halfway down the blade) but on my site the preference is for fully lined, self tipped ties, its all just preference. I'm probably going to stick with 90% fully lined and 10% untipped going forward, I've fallen out of love with the untipped stuff, also going to do very little Macclasfield prints. BTW, I can typically make any of the fabrics I have in any size or construction on a made to order basis.

    GALLO ties don't they have a website or some place to buy them? Google gives me nothing?

    I believe they're only sold in Italy, in Gallo brand stores. At least that's the only place I've ever seen them.

    Their knit ties are awesome! Very hard to get your hands on though.

    What exactly are you looking for...?

    They do make ties for other companies. For example, I believe that Kent Wang's bicolour knit ties are made by Gallo. I've got one and it's great.

    I highly doubt it, at the price he's selling it for. Anything's possible though.

    David Hober. He'll remake them if he already had your pattern.

    I've used Tiecrafters but I found them lazy and their attention to detail somewhat lacking.

    They are sold also in selected stores but they could be ordered only in their showroom or at Pitti and not from the standard sale agents.

    This at least until some years ago, a friend sold them in his boutique with other nice products like striped swimwear etc.
