About the construction
Imagine your beloved unstructured jacket. It is soft and elegant with a downplayed touch. It wears light and comfortable while meeting the needs of the modern gentleman. Our untipped ties are just like that unstructured casual jacket. Untipped ties are those where the back of the blade tips have not been closed with fabric. By removing the tipping (the fabric used to line the backside of a tie) we achieve a wonderful, light knot that is ideal for a contemporary look.
About this tie
Our ancient madder silk tie is made in a threefold construction with a perfectly balanced thin interlining giving it a light feel. Due to an untipped construction and little interlining this tie allows a subtle elegant knot. Fully handmade in Italy from the best skilled artisans it is untipped with meticulously handrolled edges that require an absolute detail to perfection and experience in the manufacturing process.
The ancient madder silk for this tie comes from one of the last mills located in Macclesfield, England, the home of English silk printing. Only a handful very specialized mills can be found that still produce this incomparable screen printed silk. A piece that will never go out of fashion with a strong heritage in the manufacturing process.
