    I just ordered my very first seven fold tie(Kiton) yesterday. I would like to know of other tie makers who make seven fold ties( American, English, French, Italian,). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Carlo Franco makes excellent ones.

    Robert Talbott can do you some; Marinella and Holliday & Brown both have limited 7-fold offerings which will cost the earth. Charvet will do one on special order, something like 190 euros.

    I second that assessment. Their double fours are excellent, as well.

    My favorite 7-fold to date is still a Bvlgari (strangely enough...). Not sure who makes them but they make fantastic knots

    Search ebay for "fold ties" to find representative makers. I can't think of any the posters here have missed, though.

    And FIH Ties, of course. Haven't got a 7-fold from them myself, but my double 4-fold is great. [​IMG]

    And we are happy to review them.

    but no matter what type of tie one acquires, if the knot is not well done the fault lies not in our ties but in ourselves...

    Thanks for the kind words guys. We constantly strive to be the best. This is good company in which to be mentioned.

    Chuck wanted to say thanks too, J, but his new password doesn't work! He's pretty sure that another tie maker has somehow sabotaged his access! [​IMG] Too bad that masters degree of his wasn't in Computer Science. Oh wait. It was. [​IMG]

    My seven fold tie is by Robert Talbott.

    Each Talbott seven fold is made in Carmel, and limited to 40 pieces.

    i'm wearing a barba now, but it's a double 4-fold, as are all the kitons I've seen.

    Kiton makes at least four different kinds of folded ties. I think that the standard double four fold is their best, but they have a few specialty ones that you can order if you so desire.

    I have Kiton and Barba and they are both too long for me, longer than my other ties. As a result, I don't like them as much as my other ties...

    All the better to wrap a few more times and make the big honking knot that the Italians like so much.

    Good job, J. That check is in the mail.

    As of late, I've been triple wrapping myself.[​IMG]

    I noticed that my barbas are extraordinarily long as well.
