This characteristic silk fabric is namned after the Shangdong province in China, which in the English speaking world was previously known as Shantung. The heavily textured weave is ideal for the warm days of summer, as it gives off a feeling of downplayed elegance, just like a well worn linen suit.
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.
