This model here is the perfect iteration of a classic wedding tie. White and black silk woven in a beautiful houndstooth pattern. Neats like this are a standard for weddings and can be worn elegantly with a white shirt, charcoal or midnight suit, white linen pocket square, black barathea braces and black oxfords. This is one of the rare occasions where formal details on a suit are appropriate, encouraged even: peak lapels, a double-breasted waistcoat, besom pockets.
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.
