    The Neapolitan ties have a long story and tradition, and, more in general, many of you know about the neapolitan tayloring style.

    Anyway in the time, the brands may have more or less luck.
    And may be italians choose different neapolitan neckties than international clients?
    We would show you the last choice of some good italian magazines.

    Napoli da Vivere magazine has really a lot of followers in Naples.
    They chosed:
    Marinella, Cilento, Ulturale, A.Quaranta Locatelli, Patrizio Cappelli, Riviera.
    Here is the article: "Le grandi cravatte di Napoli" http://www.napolidavivere.it/2014/05/12/cravatte-napoli/

    Pinkitalia is a good fashion mag.
    They chosed:
    Marinella, Cilento, Ulturale, A.Quaranta Locatelli, Patrizio Cappelli
    The article "le cravatte sartoriali di Napoli" is here: http://napoli.pinkitalia.it/moda/le-cravatte-sartoriali-di-napoli/

    Myqualitaly choice is similar:
    Marinella, Cilento, Ulturale, A.Quaranta Locatelli and P.Cappelli.
    the article:

    http://myqualitaly.it/le-cravatte-napoletane-qualita-e-grandi-marchi/

    The blog Napoliband
    chosed:
    Marinella, Ulturale, P. Cappelli, Finamore, Riviera and Isaia.
    the article is here:
    http://www.napolibandb.it/blog/2013/05/11/napoli-pizza-mandolino-e-cravatte

    CLASS choose Marinella and Ulturale comparing them with other italian brands, like Ferragamo
    http://www.classlife.it/classifiche/cravatte/

    Bintmusic choose, between some international brands, Marinella and Quaranta Locatelli.

    I personally prefer Neapolitan ties exclusively because of the construction and choice of materials. (Three of) my favorite brands are mentioned in most of the articles; E.G. Cappelli, E. Marinella and A. Quaranta Locatelli.

    My humble contribution and a voice of support of the great product you're providing. Please excuse the poor picture quality.

    Really, a tie is a complex taylor made stuff and the costruction and matherials are very important..
    In Napoli, the seven folds are very appreciated. I understand that there are very amazing and thin 3 folds ties in some other style, but this is Naples's one..
    Do you like to show the best you have for some other neapolitan brands?

    I am afraid I wrote that short sentence in a terrible english. So I will suggest you, if you have a time, to watch this video. I don't agree about everything, but it's a good explanation.
    The speaker emphasizes five main aspects of ties:

    -shell,
    -interlining
    -stitching
    -thread
    -tip lining.

    and even he talks about seven folds and other things.

    Here it is:

    Very nice color combination. However, I wish your label wasn't so large.

    Thank you. Actually we are thinking about it. Anyway this photo has a tricky perspective and the label is quite far from bottom. Anyway your taste is a good point of view!

    I personally like the label. I dont think it is too big and I like the aesthetic. Very clean design.

    I agree with the aesthetic, which is nice. it is the size that is the issue. Given a choice, I would buy a brand with more subtle labels. To me that is more elegant and I don't need to "shout" what brand or maker I am wearing.

    You can always cut it off if you think the label is too big...

    I don't want to cut off the label on the back of a fine quality tie. You risk damaging the fabric.

    I would simply buy another brand of ties with a more discreet label. There are numerous examples of attractive, smaller labels.

    What makes a tie Neopolitan? What attributes are associated with a Neopolitan tie?

    The Borrelli and Capelli labels look to be about the same size as the Locatelli. What am I missing?

    Compare them to the size/scale of the rear loop. The Locatelli is larger.


    Maybe some of you don't mind larger labels. I've been surprised by the number of larger labels recently on ties, shirts and inside jackets. Most of my bespoke clothing has small or hidden labels, such as inside the chest pocket of jackets or discreet, small labels inside a shirt or the back of a tie. There is no reason for a large label. I prefer the elegance of something smaller.
