Rubinacci’s Knit Ties

image


It’s great to have nice friends. A few months ago, StyleForum member Unbelragazzo (who does the excellent blog Ivory Tower Style) posted a photo of himself wearing a cream linen suit, light blue shirt, Rubinacci Victory pocket square, and Rubinacci burgundy knit tie with a slightly broken-up, cream chevron pattern. I liked how the tie looked so much that I ask if he could proxy me one next time he was in Europe. He was in Naples last month, kindly picked me up one, and sent it to me last week. I get ties with a little help from my friends.

Rubinacci has this design in a dozen different variations. The tie seems narrow at 5cm, but it doesn’t feel too thin when it’s actually worn. Once you have a jacket on, the proportions between your shirt, jacket, and tie are actually quite pleasing (at least to my mind).

For equally interesting knits, but in a wider width, check out the stock at P. Johnson Tailors. They have a similar chevron pattern, one of the best executed two-tones I’ve seen, and a sort of woven-in zig-zag design. The prices are expensive, but not that far off from what you’d pay at Rubinacci. For something more affordable, however, Exquisite Trimmings has some nice Sozzi ties for about $70 once you discount for VAT.
