Now I am not quite sure if this new run of ties is from a new factory. This, and the Hetcher are both lighter than the LaCroix (Swirly) and Duffer (Utopia).
Here was Risu's comment on the weight,
"The original Armani tie is the heaviest tie I own, considerably more so than Magnoli's ties. They are still a nice weight, though."
Thus, as Steve Ricks wrote in his review, this tie was based on the designs of the actual tie. This is as close as we're going to get on this one.
For Magnoli, who sometimes takes a few tries to get one spot-on, this was a bullseye.
