Understatement. Quality. Versatility. These shared values made a collaboration between Aklasu and Vladimir Riché (@chace.ryder) a natural fit. The menswear enthusiast creates YouTube videos, so make sure you check out his killer content!
The "INTRO" Tie is Vladimir Riché's first official brand collaboration. The contrasting blue block stripes add a contemporary touch to a timeless and versatile tie.
Handmade in Como, Italy, you can make the INTRO Tie part of your rotation for years. Wear it with a navy blue suit and a light blue dress shirt for a monochromatic look that turns heads from the streets of New York to the plazas in Milan.
Block Out the Noise (Not the Polish)
Sticking with block-striped grenadine ties, take a gander at the Light Brown and French Blue Block Striped Grenadine Tie. The grenadine tie’s refined texture and understated colours create an elegant simplicity.
You'll love the striped tie's versatility as you move from closing a deal in the boardroom to celebrating with colleagues after work.
Not Your Average Navy Tie
A navy tie is a classic in every modern gentleman's wardrobe. But it doesn't hurt to change it up once in a while. That's where the Navy Blue Tonal Striped Grenadine Tie steps up to the plate.
It has the versatility of a navy tie, except for a key difference: the subtle tonal stripes. Artisans achieve eye-catching and beautiful patterns thanks to a change in the weave.
Wear it to raise the bar for style in the office. Or put it on for a special occasion to raise the temperature and become the most polished man in the room.
Subtle Stripes that Radiate Quiet Confidence
The best striped ties don't hit you over the head with their colours or pattern. They embrace what the Italians call "sprezzatura," an elegant nonchalance.
The lines of delicate dots on the Light Blue and White Striped Blue Grenadine Tie create an understated striped pattern that makes pairing it with your favourite suit and shirt effortless.
A One-of-a-Kind Striped Tie for a One-of-a-Kind Guy
There's nothing standard about Aklasu's Shantung Tie. From the classic colours to the contemporary block stripes, this tie will be part of your most stunning outfits.
Shantung ties have a unique appearance due to their material. Shantung silk is less processed and more raw than silk in most ties. The yarn randomly creates ridges within the fabric thanks to the silk type. The feature makes a one-of-a-kind piece that's a jewel in every modern gentleman's collection.
Enjoy Having Mustard on Your Shirt
Wear a striped tie and turn a good suit great. The mustard yellow may not be subtle, but it's dynamite when combined with the elegance of navy blue and grey stripes.
Check out the playful and bold Navy Blue and Grey Striped Mustard Yellow Tie. Put it on for a day at the office, or add polish to your next casual event.

3 Essential Tips for Wearing Striped Ties
Patterns create chaos, and stripes are no exception. Create order and achieve balance when you wear striped ties by following these three tips:
Tip #1 - Lean on solid colours: Complement the striped tie with a solid shirt and suit. Keep it simple, clean and sophisticated.
Tip #2 - Use restraint: Stick to one, maybe two patterns on your outfit. A little goes a long way. One too many patterns can make you look like an optical illusion.
Tip #3 - Vary your stripes: If you decide to wear multiple striped elements, avoid dull repetition by wearing stripes that vary in size, direction and colour. Finally, ensure there's a difference in the distance between stripes.
