This printed silk tie uses a deep oxblood as a base with neats in cobalt blue, orange and silver. Together they create a very conservative tie that could be worn everyday in a business environment. However, it’s far from bland and the color palette makes it incredibly versatile.
Pair it with a crisp white shirt, charcoal suit and black captoe oxfords for a classic look or go bold(er) with a light blue chambray shirt, a navy glencheck suit and dark brown austerity brogues.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen or bottle green based silk square. Try not to wear this with any accessories in another shade of red.
This silk is exclusively printed for us in Como, Italy. We use a special ink jet for this fabric which results in a lovely crisp and light silk which is just right all year round.
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″).
