Wear your seasonal Neapolitan blue panama weave suit with, for example, our ‘SCR008 black satin’ shirt, our ‘TSI004 medium blue’ silk tie and our ‘SN01 midnight blue light suede’ sneakers.
Silk is the earth’s strongest naturally occurring fiber, and the most widely chosen fabric for ties. It is largely wrinkle-resistant, with a nice, soft drape. Our silk hails exclusively from Como, in Northern Italy, where silkworms nest in the region’s abundant mulberry trees. (Which is why this region has been a silk-production powerhouse since the 15th century.) This chunky knit version creates a textile that is both more casual and more flexible than other silk weaves, dressing up a casual look or down a formal one.
Ideal for summer shoes, this flexible chrome-tanned calfskin from Italy complements its supple hand with a short nap that adds a touch of softness that stops just short of your usual suede. Just rub your hand against the Light Suede’s natural grain to bring out the richness of this texture.
