Always in the same directive of offering you a stylish tie with quality silk hand worked in southern Italy! This time the process is a little different, as we introduce standard measurements to our collection.
Gentlemenclover ties, are modern and entirely handmade in Italy, unlined with a hand rolled hem giving them a most “sartorial”
One 8.5 cm wide to have a nicely predominant silk and one 147 cm or 150 cm long to suit any style. Whether you like the smaller, longer pan or not!
Our 5-ply ties
The topic of difference between constructions besides being very personal, is not very obvious when we talk about choosing a 5-ply or choosing a 7-ply. Because for us, these two constructions are really similar. We do notice a distinction in the transition from 3-ply to 5-ply.
You have a tie that holds better, that remains light without denigrating the quality of construction. The positive point is added with the choice of not having a lining which gives you a real comfort to wear!
Rarely fine silk
The fabrics are chosen from our workshops, which source directly around Lake Como. We have selected a rare fineness of silk (24 momi) to allow a light tie with a fluid fall. (momi is the unit of weight per square meter, one momi = 4.31g/m square)
The same goes for our wool“lana, wool” which has the simple definition of being an insulating weave and perfect for covering you from the cold. Our weavers use pure virgin wool giving it a low percentage of other fibers.
Patterns and Style Tips
The Strong Pattern
It’s not necessarily easy to get a patterned tie right. Here we chose to play with a less common but equally interesting pattern to wear.
The quality of our weavers again allows us to have a quality of printed reproduction difficult to find.
