Most knowledgeable observers consider the well dressed Italian man to be the most clothes conscious in the world. And more than 70% of the neckties sold in Italy are blue.
Coincidence? I don't think so. Blue is the most flexible necktie color. In shades from darkest navy to very pale it complements most dress shirts and gray, brown or blue jackets.
This week I am featuring two lighter blue neckties for the season. One is a navy, royal and white jacquard by Michael Drake. The other is a typically Italian Cappelli six-fold foulard with navy and white figures on a teal blue ground.
Customers outside the United States, Canada and Mexico should note that there is currently a minimum shipping charge of $27 to their destinations. This is the lowest cost option from the U.S. that provides tracking in transit. It is for a medium sized box that can comfortably hold a dozen or more neckties and pocket squares, so ordering more than one item costs no more for shipping.
I hope to see you at the store.
