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.
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.
A Viola Milano seven fold tie is a true testament to the skill possessed by the craftsmen in our laboratorio. In addition to requiring substantially more of our exclusive fabrics to make, the ancient seven fold construction requires time, patience and knowledge to fully master. The process results in a slightly asymmetrical knot that gives off a feeling of ’sprezzatura’ and subtle elegance that we at Viola Milano love.
Wool is quite an amazing material. It will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter, even when wet. While synthetic fabrics have come a long way, they still have a road ahead before they catch up. Our wool ties are perfect for adding a bit of understated, textured elegance to your outfit. Wether you chose a patterned 3-fold to go with your suit, or a knit that goes well with your favourite sport coat, is entirely up to you.
