Ok, this is the most unique and also difficult weave we ever had in our collection. This type of weaving (crest on normal grenadine silk) goes back to an idea of Ralph Lauren himself back in the 1980’s. Our manufactory in Como, Italy told us about his idea 40 years ago and we have been impressed by the difficulty of this weave. So we decided to try this hunting style design and we’re very happy how this tie turned out. We recommend this with a rather casual jacket or suit, such as an olive green cotton suit, light blue OCBD, cream square and plain 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.
