FrontRunners: Fit to Be Tied

  • William Kissel

Neckties made with two-piece, seven-fold construction or silk sewn with 24-karat gold thread are often regarded as the ultimate, but Italian tie maker Tino Cosma has introduced something even more refined. The company’s new Luxury Edition ties, priced at around $180 each, are made from eight-ply silk, which means eight strands of luscious silk thread have been woven into the weft of the cloth instead of the usual three or four. The higher thread count adds to the sumptuousness of the material, making it one of the softest, easiest-to-knot neckties you can own. Produced in limited quantities, the ties are available in 12 patterns with an exposed red thread down the back, an artisan detail that lets the wearer adjust the tension of the cloth.
