The 3-fold tie is the most common one. Although it is a basic construction, it often represents the best choice. Recommended in the warm season for instance or with the heaviest fabrics that would turn out to be too hefty with more well-structured models.
There are different kinds of grenadine silks, still the most prestigious and polished is the English Knot one. Its preciousness is due to the fact it is produced by ancient looms - which only two silk-factories in Como still own – through a very low and accurate production. Suitable for more informal occasions, but also for the most representative ones. Available in "Self-tipped" and “Untipped” with contrast coloured stitching version.
