Special Find

Published on 8 Oct 2012

A special find, just for our American market! In the Milan factory that produces custom-made ties, we found several boxes of ties dating to the 1950s. These "new vintage" ties were hidden under more recent stock in the factory store room. They come in cotton and wool in a variety of colors that range from traditional flag colors of red white and blue, to shades of wisteria, grey and bordeaux. Narrower and shorter than standard ties, they have been enthusiastically taken up by the lucky members of our creative team.
