We are here to help you look the part.

Timeless & Understated

Impression Maker

Our goal is to help men achieve timeless, understated style so they make lasting impressions. To achieve this goal, we created a collection of handmade, understated ties coupled with guides and resources centred around our core style principles.

Wearing our ties and following our guides and style principles will help you craft a look that is greater than the sum of its parts. You're guaranteed to make lasting impressions.

Made to Last

Our ties are painstakingly handmade by artisans in the beautiful city of Como, Italy, using traditions that have been perfected over generations. All our designs are timeless, and we've constructed every fibre from quality raw materials. In the end, our ties will always be in fashion and will always be ready to wear when you're ready to wear them.

Style Resources

To help men create an understated look and a lasting impression, we created a series of guides and resources for the journey. The core Aklasu aesthetic is expressed in our Pillars of Style. This and our other resources will help you build the foundation for an understated and timeless style that will pay you dividends for years to come.
