Mid brown printed silk tie on our beloved panama weave. The floral pattern with shades of blue and almond works with white/blue shoestring linen pocket square and blue bamboo braces.
Panama is less formal than the usual 36oz twill, but still elegant and a bit more summery with the slightly open weave, which reminds of hopsack.
In the quiet hills of the British countryside lies the traditional heart of English silk printing: Macclesfield. Once home to numerous manufactories that produced the inimitable screen-printed silk connoisseurs love so dearly, today there are only two left that produce what internationally became known as “British Neats”. But the quality that comes out of these traditional places is still unparalleled: nothing beats the depth and character of hand-printed silk. The time-consuming printing process requires a lot of experience to get right, as the color reacts after printing with oxygen and forms the final shade: a delicate process, requiring a delicate hand. The result is a lush, rich, almost 3D-like effect we just love.
