Today, Trunk Clothiers in Marylebone is holding its latest made-to-measure workshop, with esteemed Milanese tie maker Stefano Bigi – of Bigi Cravatte-Milano.
Customers will be able to place personal orders for ties (from £100), choosing from the terrific selection of fabrics for spring – including delicate white or mélange gauze from Como, striped slubby silk/linens, unusual tie fabrics such as hopsack linen/cottons from Biella, and special handprinted British silks (both 36oz and 50oz). The weight of the lining can also be specified, plus width, length and choice of embroidered initials.
Orders will be handmade in Bigi’s Milanese workshop and delivered in June.
I’d recommend following the session with a couple of cocktails at the Chiltern Firehouse, opposite. Thirsty work, style.
