    Based on @Caustic Man 's review I bought two squares from R. Culturi. They were delivered mid-week. I like 'em. I bought the wool/silk "Tides" square, and, "Knight's Move", all silk. I am impressed by the quality of both squares, based on the hand feel. Printing is excellent, and I have no complaints about the finish. I have only worn the blue one so far, and on the one day this week when I didn't photograph myself. Ah, well.

    I, too, like the size. Not too small to disappear in the pocket, but not too big to where it causes the lapel of my jacket to bow out. I have squares by Rampley & Co, Rubinacci, Ikire Jones, and maybe others that have artwork printed on them and these R. Culturi squares are as good as any. In the end, it comes down to whether or not you like the design printed on the square, at least it does for me. Their designs are good, the squares are very nice. Thumbs up from me.

    Anton also offered to send me some pocket squares free of charge. I did a post on them here: (link).

    In my opinion the best thing about them is an exclusive art work that has been printed on the silk pocket square. It is also important for me that they acknowledge the artist. Knight's Move is my favourite and have to say that it is one of the nicest new designs I have seen on pocket square.
    Since then R. Culturi started finishing the edges by hand, some of the first batches were machine finished. I very much like the relatively big size and proper weight which allows it to create a nice buff in the breast pocket. For some it might be too big though.
    Shipment was very fast and the contact prompt.

    I can see that they offer a very stylish envelopes now with a stamp - great idea.
    It is truly unique product and can recommend it to anyone.

    They now offer neck ties which appear to be of the same excellent quality. I find the designs offered to be very handsome and will be posting a review once I complete my order if there is any interest.

    Over the past few months, I have been meeting with @Brovsko , or as I know him, Anton, regularly as we both now reside in the city of brotherly love. A common interest in menswear is what sparked our friendship which particularly happened when he sent me a few squares for his brand R.Culturi back in the Fall of 2015. Since then, I have become a person he has bounced ideas back and forth with, which in turn lead me to be one of the first to see his most recent endeavor come to fruition in the form of neckties.

    To be completely up front and clear, although I have been a consultant and confidant, I am in no way financially bound to his company. I wanted to provide an honest opinion as one consumer to another on what I believe to be, some of the best quality ties I have ever handled. Firstly, let's get to some snapshots of these bad boys.

    [​IMG]

    Above pictured are the ties that I have purchased thus far. In order is the Barroco, Orquestra, and Universo models. What intrigued me most about the brand was the fact that Anton has worked with artists throughout the world in order to produce unique designs that have not yet been replicated with other brands. Through his research, Anton has advised me that many mills end up licensing different color variations to existing designs per each season. Essentially resulting in every brand putting on the same sort of goods we have always seen. Conversely, what R.Culturi has done is create their own designs (in this case, through the work of a Portuguese artist) and transposed her mandalas unto the ties.

    [​IMG]

    These hand drawn images were then printed on ancient madder silk, employing 3-fold and self-tipped construction. The tie is rough 3.35" at its widest point but the most endearing part is the fuller width even seen throughout the back blade. Personally, I prefer the four-in-hand knot and have struggled in the past to find a maker that provides a substantial lining and width that creates a considerable knot. With these ties, I am producing some of the best ones I have ever seen.

    [​IMG]

    To date, I am familiar with Drake's, Conrad Wu, Kamakura, and Kent Wang for some of my more noteworthy ties. While each have their own pros and cons, none have ever fully checked off on the list of what I deemed worthwhile in terms of price point, silk quality, knotting abilities, and design. R.Culturi on the other hand, currently offers 10% off retail, through signing onto their mailing list, on what I believe to be an already fair price at $135 (with free US shipping) for more than just a simple necktie. The story, design, and quality are top tier and I for one am very excited to see the progression with what R.Culturi has in store in the future.

    So yeah, check them ties out fellas.
