The grenadine shantung silk for our ties are woven in the Lake Como area on historic wooden looms from the 20th century. They are made in a threefold construction with a perfectly balanced thin interlining. Due to an untipped construction and little interlining this tie will allow a subtle elegant knot that is not bulky. 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.
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 dimpled knot that is ideal for a contemporary look.
