Southern Italy is the home of the unlined printed necktie. Soft and light, unlined neckties twist and turn with the breeze in a way that embodies the casualness of Italian style. They are particularly nice with today’s lighter suits and jackets, whether mid-weight worsteds or summer linens. And the ASW store has them just in time for the holidays.
My unlined and untipped neckties are made entirely by hand by the small firm of Antonio Muro outside of Naples. They are not widely available but those are Muro’s neckties that you see when you walk into the better Neapolitan tailors. No shortcuts are taken and there is not a sewing machine in sight. Each tie is individually marked onto the best Como silk, cut out with a scissors, hand rolled and sewn with needle and thread.
Try one and see the difference.
