Checked tie made from an unusual wool/silk/linen 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, Aki No Mizube square 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.
