It has always been pretty hard to find nice ties in Seattle’s few clothing stores, and as a result I tend to experiment with quite a few different online sources instead. My most recent order was for an E.G. Cappelli made tie from ASW, which as far as I know is the only source for his ties outside of visiting the showroom in Naples.

This is my first Cappelli tie, and I’ve been pretty amazed with the construction and how easy it is to get great balanced knots with it. The color of the silk is described as “copper rose” and I’ve found it to be very versatile in my wardrobe, especially for this time of the year when I’m wearing darker colored jackets.

This particular one has a three fold construction, and is self tipped (a nice touch). The label is also very classic.
