    Lots of nice ones, but not a single seven-fold.

    How is Marinella? I was tempted to buy one at the last BG sale.

    I generally don't like prints, but I love Marinella prints. The silk is nice and thick and heavy. It's also a tighter, "dryer" weave than the typical Hermes twill, or even than Drakes. Great, full knots. Beautiful bottle shape. I want one bespoke, but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay $250 for one. That will have to wait for my next trip to Italy, where the price is more like 90-100 euros.

    I thought the deal Marinella had with BG was, No Sales. I could be wrong. But I have never seen a Marinella tie on sale there. If you do, I should think it would be very tempting ...

    I own several Tino Cosma Ties....Relatively cheap and they are somewhat limited in production.
    A few Ferragamo in bright colours and fun print....same quality as Hermes but at least 25% cheaper.

    Random singles...
    Four in Hand

    The bulk... (in descending order of quantity)
    Dunhill
    Cifonelli

    I guess I don't feel too married to one country of origin, though I would be 70/30 Italian/Anglo in an ideal world (contemplating stealing the Bizzochi ties I bought for my dad, 3 Xmas' ago).

    How do you like the Prochownick? TJMaxx had a ton of them last year, but I never got around to pulling the trigger on buying one.
