We just love this particular stripe pattern and call it ‘Shibumi house stripe’, as we use it since several years again and again in different color combinations. For us, this is the perfect width and amount of stripes to keep it classic, elegant and well balanced. This one is a bit more contemporary than our version with navy and gold stripes and looks more summery. Sport it with brown linen suit, turquoise pocket square and brown striped braces.
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.
