The pleated silk tie gives another dimension to luxury, exquisite style and exclusivity. As less than 0.01% of the neckties made have a fancy pleated silk feature. The pleated silk tie is both expensive and difficult to make. The silk pattern has to lay out perfectly, taken in account the pleats, and the amount of silk used is a lot more than with a regular necktie. The pleated silk necktie is also referred to as the plisse necktie.
