I recently wrote an article at StyleForum about Rubinacci (which you should check out), but I thought I’d post some photos here of the their ties in Rome. I’ve recently become quite a fan. As you can see, they’re different from the regular repp stripes and conservative flower/ geometric patterns you see everywhere. Those are of course wonderful, but I like that Mariano Rubinacci has gone out of his way to select fabrics there are a bit more unique, and yet still conservative and elegant.
Construction wise, all the ties I handled were lightly lined. The silks also felt softer than the heavier twills that many makers like to use. All in all, a really excellently crafted and beautiful set of ties.
