Our tie is made to measure, you choose:
– the construction: 3, 5 or 7 plies
– the dimensions: width (3, 3.15, 3.35 and 3.5 inches) and length (58, 59 or others)
If you wish to have your initials embroidered, you will be able to specify them on the order page.
3, 5 or 7 plies ?
3 plies: a tie folded three times on itself. This is the lightest variation because less material is used. This is a good solution if you choose a thicker material.
5 plies: an intermediate construction, which will hold better but is still quite light. There is a little more material, and always a woollen interlining to give consistency to the whole.
7 plies: they are entirely made from the shell of the tie, folded and folded on itself. They are therefore completely free of interlinings. The hand and the fall obtained thanks to this construction are sublime.
A silk of a rare fineness
The fabrics are chosen from my workshops, which are supplied directly around Lake Como: we have chosen a silk of a rare fineness (24 mummi) to allow a light tie with a flowing fall.
(the mummy is the unit of weight per square meter, one mummy = 4,31g/m square meter)
The exception that proves the rule?
This silk twill has more hands than our other 100% silk fabrics. A fabric that we recommend that you choose on a 3-ply construction.
Patterns and style tips
The silk twill
Silk twill is the most basic and smooth weave that can be found for a tie: it is the most suitable for formal wear. Unlike ties on the market that are lined (and therefore thicker and stiffer in this weave), our ties are unlined and have an extremely fluid feel, with a harmonious drop.
Thanks to this very wise texture, we have allowed ourselves to use brighter and more luminous colours that will remain easy to wear with classic colours: choose for example navy blue or grey in suits with a pronounced texture.
