When Joseph-Marie Jacquard demonstrated his improved mechanical loom in 1801, he revolutionised weaving forever. His new design allowed for automated weaving of complex patterns, that give unparalleled complexity and character to fabrics. In order to create be most beautiful ties possible, we source our beautiful silk jacquard from the world’s finest mills in Italy and England.
When most people think about a tie, they are most likely imagining a classic 3-fold construction. While it is the simplest construction offered in our collections, it is by no means an inferior option. Creating a beautiful tie is all about balance, and many times the light and minimalistic 3-fold is the perfect choice. For instance, it is ideal for light summer ties or for heavier fabrics that would become too hefty with other constructions.
Imagine your favourite unconstructed sport coat. It is light, comfortable and wears beautifully. It is sporty and casual, yet elegant and refined. Our untipped ties are just like that sport coat – By removing the tipping (the fabric used to line the backside of a tie) we achieve a beautiful, light drape that is ideal for a downplayed, elegant look.
