Went to a fancy lunch meeting today, where I presumed (mostly correctly) that the 75 people in attendance would dress up. Opting for the monochromatic look, I had the good sense to pair a dark grey suit and crisp white shirt with your Micro Dotted Six-Fold grey tie.
To be clear, I wasn't the youngest, smartest or best-looking person there, but I do believe I was in the running for best dressed. All thanks to you.
Your fan and friend.
If a word could adequately describe my two Aklasu ties it would be “Stunning”. Ordered both the Navy Blue Tonal Stripe and Burgundy & Navy Houndstooth Six Fold to fill urgent gaps in my wardrobe for New Year’s celebrations.
The depth of color, meticulous construction and silken quality at any price point exceeded even their internet catalog likeness. An Aklasu tie would add character to the most casual, or stylish pairings.
The ties arrived in practically no time accompanied by chocolate and a thoughtful note, all of which sent me rummaging through my closet to match future Aklasu prospects.
The customer service is second to none. The tie is lovely, well constructed. It is much higher quality than other Swedish-brand ties of similar type. It pairs well with all colors of shirt and suit, especially dark gray, navy, and charcoal brown.
The tie can take on a creamy mocha color if the lighting is dark, or a more brighter green if contrasted against a brighter blue. The photo in the review shows the tie against a Hungarian made-to-measure brand’s natural linen shirt. The fact that the tie is available is a godsend for a person like myself who is 6’5”.
Overall this is a very good quality considering you can purchase two of these for the cost of boutique brand counterparts. I look forward to purchasing more.
Overall I was really impressed with the service experience, attention to detail and quality of the ties. This company is on the right track.
From the easy to navigate web site with fashion and matching advice, to the tie packaging (best storage container ever) and personal follow-ups. The ties themselves are high quality, with great weight and wear easily.
They bring an extra level of refinement and sophistication to any outfit and are a must have for the discerning gentleman. I now own four :)
This was our first purchase with Aklasu. We ordered a stunning tie. There was a minor shipping issue (on our end); Chantelle reached out immediately to clarify - very efficient, professional, and warm.
Then the tie came. It arrived very quickly from Italy to the US! It was exactly as pictured on the site - very high quality.
It was packaged carefully and beautifully, and even included a hand written Thank You note, and a special treat - a full size candy bar! We will absolutely be purchasing more from Aklasu.
Thank you both!
