Hello Styleforum ,
My name is Gianni Cerutti and I am the founder of Passaggio Cravatte ( www.passaggiocravatte.com )
I have come to know Styleforum through one my clients who showed me this thread discussing our brand: http://www.styleforum.net/t/279022/new-ties . And that's why I wanted to become a sponsor and affiliate.
This thread is meant to tell you more about who we are, what we do, and what makes us unique.
Passaggio Cravatte has features that make us uniqie in Italy and the world.
1 ) We do not have anything ready for purchase because everything is bespoke: bespokeTIES, pocket squares, cummerbunds, ascots and bow ties. When placing an order, the customer chooses the silk , texture, pattern , interior, measurements , opening of the folds , color of the joists and whether to embroider or not your initials or your family crest. Everything is done by hand.
2 ) We only use vintage silks - still hand-printed from many years ago . All are endangered and the quantity is very limited . All our thirst have from 40 to 80 years of life on his shoulders. And the quality of hand print is great. Our silks are much sought after . I love to call them dandy - elegant .
3) We know how to do the ancient 7 folds in one piece of silk. WHEN THIS ALL TIES IN THE WORLD ARE THE UNION OF 3 PIECES OF FABRIC. FERRARI ARE THE TIES OF THE PIECE. For a tie, we need 2 yards of silk in length and 1.50 meters in height. Our oldest 7 folds are done differently than the the modern way. Our model goes back to the early 1900s. It 's all unlined and all hemmed by hand as it was done 100 years ago.
4 ) We willl not open up a shop. This is because we think they are too commercial . We only want to make bespoke.
