Fleur-de-lis is a quite classic pattern for ties, but this particular one is called Giglio di Firenze or Giglio Bottonato. It’s the crest of the city of Florence and if you’ve ever been here, you definitely saw it everywhere. We’re proud of our beautiful city and history, so we love to use this traditional crest. Works wonderfully with a brown glencheck jacket, light grey trousers, light blue shirt, burgundy pocket square, striped braces and brown tassel loafers.
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.
