Five essential ties - Biagio Santo edition

20 February 2018

"Meticulous workmanship may be found in every detail of a Biagio Santo tie."

Beautifully hand-crafted and created in Italy specifically for Oscar Hunt, this selection of Biagio Santo ties embodies artisanal quality with true summer-time style.

Meticulous workmanship may be found in every detail of a Biagio Santo tie - from the hand-cutting of the textile with traditional scissors, through painstaking hemming, trimming and stitching, to finishing flourishes such as hand-applied embroidery.

From fascinating grenadine and sensual cashmere, to the finest silk jacquard and characterful cotton-linen blend, we present five summer-weight ties embodying the obsession of both Biagio Santo and Oscar Hunt with offering custom tailored garments constructed from the most premium of fabrics.

100% Silk jacquard in black with red and silver floral pattern
Lustrous in appearance and luxurious in feel, a silk jacquard tie may dress up or down as the wearer sees fit. A playful counterpoint to the formality of a light wool suit, it will as easily cohabitate with cotton or even linen. The example shown here, in black with red and silver floral pattern, demonstrates how effortlessly the silk jacquard tie turns a good ensemble into a great one.

Navy blue 100% silk grenadine 
Only two manufacturers in Italy make most of the world’s grenadine, making silk grenadine ties exceedingly rare and, therefore, a must-have accessory for the sartorial gent. The three-dimensional weave strikes a perfect balance between formal and casual, and in deep navy it cries out for lighter blues or even earthy tones for contrast. For lasting impact, style with a cotton suit in light or mid-grey with a windowpane check.

Burgundy grenadine silk tie with pale blue spots 
Take your summer fashion game to the next level with grenadine. With a gauze-like pattern woven from silk by Biagio Santo, it’s an aesthetically pleasing yet still adventurous choice. This burgundy tie of fine grenadine silk will add texture and dimension to a light cotton suit or jacket-and-chino combo, while its pale blue spots create a cheerful contrasting pop.

Unlined pale blue cotton and linen blend 
Embrace the breezy vibe of the tropics with a Biagio Santo unlined cotton and linen blend tie in pale blue. A clear winner for Casual Friday in the office, it’s equally ready for after-five drinks on the terrace or a day at the polo. Bellissimo with the beige linen jacket shown here, you can also get creative by pairing it with a seersucker sports jacket and chinos.

Unlined 100% deep red cashmere 
Demonstrate your mastery of style with this deep red cashmere tie, hand-made by Biagio Santo and unlined for a softer, less-structured silhouette. Appearing from afar as solid red, an intriguing duality and a slight sheen are revealed only on closer inspection. Pair with charcoal, navy, taupe or beige for effortlessly sophisticated results.
