A Black Silk Tie Finished In The Artisan Way

Seldom do I receive a compliment on my ties. They are overlooked because of the fact that we specialise in bow ties. Selling ties is about three times as hard as selling bow ties. Firstly, the market place is full of ties, secondly, the tie makers have a much bigger pool of customers who are segmented. They will buy their ties because of their vocation, their position in the company, their lifestyle, their individual personality. It is just a very difficult business. However, this European summer we were introduced to a new tie maker in Italy. His work arrived this morning and I have to say, it is of a different calibre. Totally made by hand, the tie is finished with a great deal of attention to detail. My photos do not do the tie justice. Photographing ties was also another reason why we've never gone full steam ahead on ties. I have not once found a website that really knows how to present ties well. All of that aside, below you will see the 7cm tie we are running for formal wear. It is a black satin basket weave, bar tacked front and back, lightly lined, a horizontal bar line on the front of the tie woven in and a lovely feel in the hand. This is our contribution to the tie world, one for formal wear. Available now online at
