Biagio Santo for Oscar Hunt

27 January 2018

"Traits such as their meticulous attention to detail and traditional sartorial practices are subtly reflected within its products"

Beautifully handcrafted and made in Italy; our collaboration with Biagio Santo offers seasonal and core collections of neckties and pocket squares that are genuinely something special.

The dedication behind Biagio Santo’s distinctive accessories has remained unchanged since 1972 – each product completely crafted by the experienced hands of artisans based in Italy. Traits such as their meticulous attention to detail and traditional sartorial practices are subtly reflected within its products.

The first stage of its manufacturing process begins with the cut using traditional scissors; done painstakingly, one at a time, to ensure precision. Hemming the tips is carried out next and subsequently, the pinning stage where fabrics are folded around wool interlinings.

The final product begins to take shape when the fabric shell and interlining is stitched together and thereafter, the finishing touches of embroidery. Quality control is also an important requisite to ensure consistency throughout the brand’s accessories range.

In modern times where the menswear industry is dominated by cheap and mass production, Biagio Santo is a brand determined to remain true to its roots – opting for carefully considered materials and consecrating high-quality workmanship.

To some extent, Biagio Santo’s philosophy resonates deeply with that of Oscar Hunt’s – our team of fitters and tailors, too, strive to deliver custom tailored garments constructed from luxurious fabrics and advanced technological processes.

Establishing these common attributes between both Biagio Santo and Oscar Hunt has resulted in a collaborative effort to create a range of accessories including seasonal and core collections of neckties and pocket squares that complement our favourite suiting colours, patterns and textures.

This includes core staples of grenadine neckties in versatile shades of chocolate brown, midnight navy, deep burgundy and military green – ideal for business environments, special occasions or simply, those looking to build a sartorial wardrobe.

Meanwhile, seasonal collections consist of bolder designs, cotton and linen blends for Summer and more textured fabrics, cashmere and shantung silk for Winter; produced in limited quantities and specifically for us.

In hindsight, Biagio Santo to the Oscar Hunt team is not just another accessories label – and in the case of a pocket square, is genuinely something special that we tucked neatly in our suit pockets and close to our hearts.
