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.
The tip is simply the fabric that is used to finish the backside of a tie. Even though this part of your tie is not usually visible, we use the same fabric for the tip as we do for the shell of the tie. This beautiful method is called self-tipping and, while more expensive to produce, creates a more beautiful tie that stands up to closer scrutiny without leaving you disappointed.
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.
