    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.

    Chuck wanted to say thanks too, J, but his new password doesn't work!

    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.

    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.

    RJ, how much are they charging for the 7 fold Marinellas in Paris? The bespoke 7 folds cost Euro 130.... CF ties are priced at $165.

    T4, in the US regular Marinellas sell at almost 160 dollars before sales tax. I believe in Paris Monsieur magazine mentioned they are around 140 to 150 euros, for the normal line. The only place in Paris AFAIK they are sold is at the George V gift shop, which is a bit too rich for my blood. The selection is rather small. I do not know if 7-folds are sold there. You do not need to rub in how cheaply [sic] you can obtain Marinellas at the source -- although I'm wearing a Marinella I got for 1 pound, new. When are we going to Seraphin?

    PS: While Marinella's tie keeper is excellent, their ties do not appear to be cut on the bias and their patterns -- identical to some Holliday & Brown offerings -- are almost uniformly staid. I must admit I prefer a maker with more versatility and with silk cut on the bias.

    Yes, I generally don't like Marinella's printed RTW. Regarding the bias cut, if I remember correctly, all but one of my bespoke are cut on the bias.

    Add me to the list of Carlo Franco fans. The finest ties I have ever seen at any price.

    While some of the printed silks are not to my taste, I like the fact that Marinella offers a collection that is quite retro in taste without being fashion forward in the least. As that is my taste, I find many in the collection that I like.

    I, too, am a huge fan of the Bvlgari 7-folds. The Kitons and Borrellis are quite nice too.

    Tino Cosma makes a true seven fold (and eight-ply silks that are quite nice as welll). Testoni also makes a true seven. The Bulgari/Kitons that I have are, I believe, double fours.
