This was the first tie I ordered from Magnoli after attempting to find one at least similar in prestige American stores such as Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordsrom's, etc. I sorted through hundreds of ties from the houses of Donna Karen, Ralph Lauren, YSL... etc; etc; ad infinitum.
It turns out Bertrand Russell was spot on: happiness often depends on not getting what you want. I decided to give Magnoli a try even though they were in NZ. It's been one of the best decisions I've made with regard to apparrel. The tie is a phenomenol accessary with either a black suit or a very dark charcoal suit. Hey, if Tom Ford thought it would work in QOS, who am I to say he was wrong? This is a subtely conceived tie that seems to give off a vibe of distinction and quality in the same way a Breitling or Omega watch would. Since receiving it (and Indy's customer service is top class), I've noticed scores of men wearing black suits and somehow opting for ties that just don't work, diminishing the elegance of whatever suit they're wearing considerably. The "London" tie will make any well-tailored black or just-this-side-of black look like it cost twice its price.
