Gentlemen,

As promised, after the success of our first limited editions of the Go-To White and Blue Marol shirts (sold out) and the Norman Vilalta shoes (a few pairs are still available), we continue to give you the option to buy exceptional sartorial items direct from the atelier and/or craftsmen with whom we’ve built a solid relationship over the years.

The following artisanal ties and pocket squares are from one of the premiere tie makers in Italy : Calabrese of Naples, who is crafting and selling a special-edition collection made and sold directly from the Calabrese atelier.

For this first collaboration, Calabrese has raised the bar to present a very limited number of  luxurious neckties and silk accessories:  specifically, seven models of designer ties, with the highlight being a very small batch of three 12-fold ties which are highly specific in terms of construction and design.

12 Fold ties in printed silk

This small batch of three different models (only 10 ties per design) is its own sartorial animal, both aesthetically and technically.

Annalisa Calabrese has utilized a new way of crafting high-end neckwear ties with silk (from Como), using a dual method of printing to render a unique dimensional look.

Each necktie is first printed with a bright single color on the underside, followed by a second phase of pattern-printing on the top side of the tie. The result of this technique renders an overall dimensional appearance embedded with bright and deep colors with a harmonious presentation. Personally, I haven’t witnessed such deep and sophisticated colors, mingled with unique patterns, on this essential accessory. Very elegant and breathtaking!

Most notable is that these ties are 12-fold, requiring much more silk than standard ties–as the silk is folded 12 times onto itself.

A 12-fold tie is a rare thing, and I’m not even sure any such necktie is available on the sartorial market. In terms of thickness and weight, the ties are stunning in terms of finesse, with no lining and no interlining, except a short piece where the knot is tied, with the weight of the tie being as light as a feather.

For the first curation, are three beautiful, stylish and timeless patterns :

Model 1 : 12 fold tie with red and green pattern 

Model 2 : 12 fold tie with purple, burgundy and orange pattern 

Model 3 : 12 fold tie with orange/rust and blue dot pattern 

Attention : Only TEN PIECES each of these 12-fold have been produced. They are offered at 219 euros (shipment not included, but given the light weight of the accessory, the cost should be nominal). The ties are shipped in a beautiful Calabrese white box which may be used to protect or pack the product when you travel.

If you wish to order one or more, send an e-mail to specialeditioncalabrese1924@gmail.com and indicate your choice of Model  1, 2 or 3 (as well as your delivery address).

A confirmation e-mail will be sent, as well as a link for payment (including the shipment cost, shipped directly from the Calabrese atelier in Naples).

Jacquard self-tipped Ties in Woven silk

For the second batch of these limited editions, Annalisa Calabrese crafted three models of carefully curated “Jacquard” woven silk, with the silk and pattern coordinating to adapt to different style preferences and occasions (formal, business or casual).

Model 4 : Jacquard woven tie royal blue with pink dots

My personal favorite, with a very dry and crisp touch to the silk–a powerful tie for those who like to make a classic style statement, and versatile enough to pair with most any outfit.

Model 5 : Jacquard woven silk “gaze” tie asphalt green/blue

This more discreet model is constructed of a highly agreeable heavy silk gaze, with a very slight bulk to the touch which allows an extremely neat and impeccable knot. The construction and design is very versatile and useable for many types of occasions. Discreet and timeless.

Model 6 : Jacquard woven silk paisley brown/rust tie

The color of rust might be the most versatile color in the sartorial arsenal–a color which is a “must-have” in any gentleman’s quality wardrobe. Rust never sleeps.

Attention : Like the 12 fold batch, only TEN PIECES of each of these three ties have been produced. They are offered to you for 149 euros (shipment not included, but should be nominal for such light weight accessories). The ties are shipped in a beautiful Calabrese white box which may be used to protect or pack the product when you travel.

If you wish to order one or several of these ties, simply send an e-mail to specialeditioncalabrese1924@gmail.com and indicate your choice of  Model 4, 5 or 6 from this batch (as well as your delivery address).

A confirmation e-mail will be sent, as well as a link for payment (including the shipment cost, shipped directly from the Calabrese atelier in Naples).

Unlined Grosgrain dark blue tie

Model 7 : unlined grosgrain dark blue tie

This final model is an unlined grosgrain sfoderata silk tie, a staple in any gentlemen’s wardrobe, as well as an elegant “fusion” between the formal color of dark blue and a more casual knitted appearance. No lining and entirely handmade and hand rolled.

Attention : Only TEN PIECES each of this tie has been produced. It is offered for 159 euros (shipment not included, but that should be inexpensive for such a light weight accessory). It will be sent to your address in a beautiful Calabrese white box that you’ll be able to keep and use to protect or pack your ties when you travel.

If you wish to order one or several of these ties, simply send an e-mail to specialeditioncalabrese1924@gmail.com and indicate your choice of  Model 7  (as well as your delivery address).

A confirmation e-mail will be sent, as well as a link for payment (including the shipment cost, shipped directly from the Calabrese atelier in Naples).

PS: all the above ties come in 8cm width and 1m50 length, and are formed in a “half-bottle” shape–the favorite of Don Eugenio Calabrese, Annalisa’s grandfather as this formation allows for an especially beautiful “dimple” under the knot.

White silk pocket squares with contrasted hems around the edges

To complement the special edition ties, Annalisa Calabrese crafted a batch of white silk pocket squares with contrasted edges (hand hemmed of course) in 33X33 cm format.

The versatility of these pocket squares are particularly evident, with six different edge colors : Wine Red, Sky Blue, Marine Blue, Grey, Olive Green and Gold Yellow.

These timeless sartorial accessories have also been produced in small batches (from 9 to 25 depending on the color) and are offered for 52 euros (shipment not included, but cost is mitigated due to the light weight of the accessories). It will be sent in a beautiful Calabrese white rounded box that can be used for organization or as great packaging for a gift.

If you wish to order one or several of these squares, send an e-mail to specialeditioncalabrese1924@gmail.com and indicate the model you want (i.e., the color of the edge) as well as your delivery address.

You’ll receive a confirmation e-mail as well as a link for payment (including shipment costs) directly from the Calabrese atelier in Naples.
