Glencheck tie made from an unusual cotton/silk mix, a wonderfully summer classic. Works with many formal and informal summer outfits, we especially like it with a navy suit, light blue striped shirt, Kari square, navy/green/orange braces and light brown brogues.
In the heart of the Italian silk industry, Como, lies one of the oldest silk weavers in Europe. Founded in mid-19th-century, at first as a supplier of silk for furnishings and clothing, they began to make silk for ties when it took its modern shape at the beginning of the 20th century. To this day, a lot of historic, wooden looms are in use, which have not been produced in decades. But there is no substitute for them: our popular grenadine silk is woven on them, for example. We just love this heritage of Italian craftsmanship and we do our best to keep those traditions alive.
