    Thanks for the information. So Cilento and Marinella use very similar construction technique. You prefer Kiton (they make their own I assume) as they are handmade. Who else in Napoli makes their own handmade ties? Capelli? Quarantalocatelli?

    All those you mention but Kiton and the last one who I do not know, do change of factory every time or even got several real tiemakers doing for them at once. The thing they do is to chose the silks and get others make their product, like Armani or similar not loved on this forum one.

    That is an arthisan vs. a fashion brand thing.

    I think that I understand your reply but I'm not certain. Are you saying that Kiton is the only Naples-based tie-maker that you are familiar with that makes ties in the artisinal manner by hand?

    You do realize you are asking someone @SartodiNapoli who sells and makes handmade ties, if they know of someone who makes hand made ties : )

    Not the only one, the alta sartoria brands as Attolini or Borrelli got their ties made by hand as well, others do not as I mentioned some, especially the one who is ironically know as the per se Neapolitan tie brand, who is just that, a brand. ( But on the bespoke commisions). ( You mentioned the name priorly)

    Dear Brax, thank you for your question, our ties are totally hand made. I could say: Of course!

    Received my first batch of @SartodiNapoli ties.

    Bespoke 7 folds, lined with a thin layer of wool and cotton, untipped with handrolled edges, 145cm x 9cm. I do not own any Cappelli's but I do own several Vandas and Sarto's ties compare very favorably, as they have more folds they hang better and the handstitching is slightly finer. They do a nicer and more substantial knot due to the higher number of folds. Vanda has a very good selection of unusual fabrics (including japanese silks) and their website works very good so I will continue order from both, as they do a different kind of tie, but I think Sarto's quality of construction is better.

    Service was very good and Sarto has been very attentive during the process of ordering and shipping. I'm looking forward to order some grenadines, but this will be next month haha

    For the last year I've been wearing Kenji Kaga (f/k/a TieYourTie). They are beautiful and unique.
    I'll post some pics later.
