Focus on fabric
Produced in Como, Italy, by the country’s oldest silk weaver, the grenadine tie is spun on traditional wooden looms dated back to 1928 – a time-consuming method that demands a full hour of work to complete every meter of fabric. This classic technique allows to create durable, authentically textured weave – similar to jacquard – famous for its depth of color and tactile handle. Available in two different finishes, a finer Garza fina and a more substantial Garza grossa, we tend to prefer the latter, subtler variation for its little extra sheen and silky softness.
Craftsmanship is key
Made by skilled artisans in the family-operated Como workshop, each piece is imbued
with their rich heritage and takes hours to craft. In fact, let these smart, seasoned

Easy to tie and easy to wear, this ageless piece is bound to become an indispensable part
of your sartorial repertoire. With a tactile, weighty handle similar to its knitted
counterpart, it’s the refinement and subtlety that sets it apart. Commonly associated
with smart suits and formal elegance, it works equally well with a more casual wardrobe
– from the crisp Oxford shirt to downtown denim. A tie so hardworking, it’s worth
adding more than one to your rotation this season.
