We interweave your purple tie with white stripes along its entire length to ensure it stays in place.

Just like a jacket made at a tailor's, we use a wool-based fabric interlining. The lining in the large and small panels finishes off your piece neatly.

How do I tie my tie ? What type of knot(s) can I use ? 

This is the most interesting question you have to answer. We can only give you some indications.

Silk is a stretchy material, so it is very pleasant to the touch and easy to tie.

We opt for the single knot because the density of the silk is important and we do not recommend the use of the double (or Windsor) knot. Being usually a very large knot consuming a lot of fabric it is by definition very thick. In our opinion, combining the two gives an unattractive result. The half Windsor knot, close to the single knot, is possible!

On the other hand, the double knot goes perfectly with a tie without interlining and preferably in printed silk : see our 7 fold models.

Good to know For reasons of proportion, we recommend wearing your tie with a shirt that has a relatively wide or very wide opening. We also recommend a collar stand height of more than 2.5 cm to better highlight your knot and tie.

Bonus : the tie knot shows your creative personality, your mood of the moment, your desire and the passion that you devote to it !

How can I wear my tie more casually and naturally?

Once your tie is tied, leave the small flap outside the large flap.
Or leave the small flap out when the knot forms for a very stylish and elegant look.

How do I match my purple tie with white stripes?

With a gray or blue suit, plain or with tennis stripes, but above all have fun! (green is also allowed...!)
