E. Marinella

I recently stumbled across a thrift store with a supply of E. Marinella ties that seems to flow into the shop at about a steady trickle. The Naples tie-maker has been spoken of in almost reverential tones on style blogs such as A Suitable Wardrobe and Permanent Style, both to praise the craftmanship as well as the wonderful silks and patterns available. Based on my limited experience, I'd have to agree with those assessments: the colors are rich and vibrant while the patterns are elegantly staid, in my opinion. One could argue that these works of art represent a bargain at the retail price of $195.00, but at $29.00, its an absolute steal.


  1. dan - are these Marinella's still showing up at your thrift store? care to proxy?

  2. Hi GHo,
    I haven't seen any since I think mid-to-end of November. I haven't checked in since the week before X-Mas, so its probably time to drop by and see if there's anything new.
