Today I’m wearing my new handmade, seven fold cashmere tie from Viola Milano. First starting with gemstone, silver and leather bracelets, Viola Milano very recently increased their product range by offering some amazing handmade ties. The collection includes soft cashmere, like mine, as well as crisp grenadines and silk jacquards, basically covering most of your neckwear needs all in one brand. 

After a great first impression, I would definitely say that Viola Milano’s ties are fully comparable to the likes of Drake’s, Passagio Cravatte, Borrelli, Salvatore Piccolo and other high end makers. The cashmere models are very light compared to other cashmere ties I’ve tried. This results in a beautiful knot that isn’t too chunky, something that according to my experience is often an issue with wool ties in general and cashmere ties in particular. 

Viola Milano is without a doubt one of my new favourite tie brands, and I am certain that this won’t be my only tie from them for long.
