A Cozy Shantung Tie in Onyx
Silk is a common tie fabric, but our partners at Paolo Albizzati aren’t content to settle for merely straightforward designs. That’s where shantung comes into play (and enters your rotation of fine neckwear). Shantung is made from 100% silk in a textured/irregular slub pattern and feel. The result is a tie that becomes that much more visually engaging at a closer glance. The more casual texture is also a wise pairing with smart casual looks, like a light blue Oxford beneath a rust-colored cardigan, or a grey chambray dress shirt paired with a soft-shouldered navy blazer and tan chinos.
