This wool-silk-linen tie is made of a fabric from Huddersfield Fine Worsteds’ Portofino VII bunch. The combination of a bright navy and red check makes this tie a versatile summer staple. Its mottled texture adds some more visual interest and makes this tie a go to item to dress down a classic business suit.
Pair it with a white shirt, mid grey suit and dark brown suede cap toe oxfords for a classic look or go bold(er) with a white-grey bengal stripe shirt, a tobacco brown linen suit and snuff suede penny loafers.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen or cream based silk square.
Huddersfield Fine Worsteds is an internationally-renowned fabric manufacturer from west Yorkshire with an experience of over 700 years. Their ranges include the famous Hardy Minnis Flannel and Fresco cloths.
Our ties are entirely hand made from the cutting of the fabric to the sewing of the bar tacks in a small workshop in Como, Italy. This family business is around since more than half a century and has already been working for a number of well-known brands.
Each tie is constructed as a 3-fold with hand-rolled hems and a pure wool interlining.
The classic tie is between 8 cm (3.15″) and 9 cm (3.5″) wide. We recommend 8 cm width for everyone wearing a size 46, 90, 23 (36 S/R/L) or smaller. If you’re wearing a 50, 98, 25 (40 S/R/L) or bigger you should choose 9 cm width. If you’re a 48, 94 or 24 (38 S/R/L) you are spoilt for choice. We do not recommend any ties slimmer as 8 cm as it limits the ties ability to create a nicely dimpled knot.
Usually, ties measure from 145 cm (57″) to 150 cm (59″) in length. However, many men need longer or shorter ties. The length of the tie is not only defined by its wearers’ height but also by circumference of his neck. To determine your required length measure one of your existing ties from tip to tip. Tie the tie until its wide tip is the proper length and ends right at your trouser waistband. Now measure the distance from the ties skinny tip to your trouser waistband and either add or subtract it from the total length of your tie. We offer four different lengths from 140 cm (55″) to 160 cm (63″).
