The hand made lined six-fold is the prince of neckties, in my opinion. More than a meter of silk is used in a sixfold necktie's construction, along with a pure wool interlining. The extra material means the necktie drapes better and resists wrinkling compared to conventional neckties. In the photos, a selection of colorways for days in the sunshine. The first uses green and orange flowers to add complexity to an indigo ground that would be worn with gray suits.
This selection of six-fold neckties was made by E&G Cappelli, a small atelier in Naples Italy. Each tie was hand folded, self-tipped and has a keeper. In the photo, dark and mid-blue patterns on an orange ground coordinate with navy suits and white or light blue shirts.
Finally, the classic necktie with dark blue suits and white, blue or gray shirts. White and blue fleur de lis add variety to the bright red ground.
