Tiedeals has been advocating 'Made in Italy' to streamline the perception of the shopper as most designer ties are made in Italy or in China (lower end generally speaking). To simplify the shopping experience, years ago I decided to not sell any ties made in China. In Italy there are 3-5 main factories which produce for 20+ famous designer brands, mostly the silk factories near Como, and for the hand made sevenfold tie, Napoli, Italy.
With the saying "made in Italy only" we meant "quality ties only", so we do not want the exclude quality neckwear made in France or England. Brands available: Duchamp ties (made in Italy and England), Hermes ties (Made in France), and Turnbull & Asser ties, hand made in England.
The classic English brand, which stands for tradition and quality, Turnbull & Asser ties, bow ties, ascot ties and extra long ties are an equisite men accessory. Turnbull & Asser extra long ties are available in classic styles made of jacquard silks. The Turnbull & Asser bow tie is available in solid satin silk black in several dimensions and velvet bow ties in several popular colors. The Turnbull & Asser ascot is also classic, polka dots, micro dots prints in navy, blue and purple.
The Turnbull & Asser tie needs a bit of explanation:
The construction: Formed from three sections – the blade, the gusset and the under end – they are hand-stitched in England by skilled sewers using premium, exclusive silks.
Turnbull & Asser ties are made from Suffolk-woven silk and a wool blend lining, and is stitched together using a very strong nylon thread.
