Regimental stripes are a textile pattern consisting of diagonal, coloured bands, used for ties and ribbons since around World War I, with colour schemes derived from uniforms, flags and heraldry. This beige tie goes really well with our light blu checked poplin shirt and navy / green / orange barathea 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.
