There are exceptions to every generalization but I find I rarely wear printed silk neckties these days, preferring the texture of grenadines and knitted silk mixed with cashmere in winter and shantung and tussah silk in summer.
Mr. Peter Zottolo was in the studio the other week, interviewing me for a piece for Style Forum, and we took out several things for photographs. Among them were a Shantung silk necktie and linen pocket square by Drake's London. I liked the combination so much that I wore it the other day with a cotton suit fresh from its storage bag. After months of winter neckties it was time for spring textures.
