Our very popular block stripe design in a slightly new version with two more thin stripes - this adds a more unique and interesting touch. This tie is very easy to combine and works with business suits as well as sports jackets. Try it with a beige suit, ukiyo-e square, blue braces and brown loafers.
Just like normal repp silk, this is characterized by its deep, ribbed structure. The reason this is called “super-repp” becomes apparent once you look at the backside: normally, the weft (usually navy) can be seen shimmering through, so that the colors will become a bit muted. With super repp, this is not the case, which is especially nice with an untipped, hand-rolled tie. Also, this variant is more matte, drier, than regular repp; just as we like it.
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.
