Salvatore Ferragamo is the Italian fashion house that began making neckties in 1970’s. Their ties are perhaps best known for their quirky, handsome, and sometimes amusing printed silk patterns. Now, thanks to its “Made-to-Order” tie program, you can customize your favorite Ferragamo tie to suit you perfectly. The first wave will come in 11 styles: eight prints and three jacquards (which is a design woven onto the fabric). All the styles will come in multiple color variations. From there you can pick:
Length: Your choices are 140 cm, 150 cm or 160 cm.
Width: 6 cm, 7 cm, 8 cm or 8.5 cm.
Color: Navy, light blue, red, orange, pink or green.
Lettering: Available in the latin alphabet with a maximum length of three letters or two letters and two periods. The fonts available are block and cursive and are embroidered on the back.
Using patterns, each piece of the tie (the broad front and the narrow tail) is drawn on printed silk fabric and cut by hand.
The Made-to-Order tie program will be available at selected Salvatore Ferragamo stores including New York, Chicago, Bal Harbour, Beverly Hills, and Toronto. The ties will retail for $250 in the U.S. (and $275 in Canada) and will come in a special branded tie box, so they are perfect for gifts.
