This sky blue tie is made from Chinese Tussah raw silk. Tussah silk is a traditional material for summer ties. It is predominantly known for its slubby and fuzzy texture due to the raw silk yarns. Furthermore, it has a rigid and dry touch and wears very light. This tie is aimed at the true tie connoisseur who doesn’t need but wants to wear a piece of fine neckwear. It is excellent to be worn with informal combinations.
Pair it with a white cotton-linen blend shirt, navy linen sport coat, grey fresco pants and dark brown suede tassel loafers for a classic look or go bold(er) with a light pink bengal stripe shirt, a tan solaro suit and dark brown suede single monks.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen or mint green based silk square.
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″).
