Our standard ties are 3 1/4" wide. They’re handmade, so there’s a slight variance for every tie. We do make select ties that are 3 1/8" and wider. Ask us about them!
At this time, we only offer custom ties for large orders of the same necktie, e.g. weddings.
All of our ties are handmade in Como, Italy. We also source our wool and silk from Como, Italy.
We restock our high demand/best sellers monthly. How often other ties are restocked depends on availability of silk and other priorities. You can enter your email to be informed when an out of stock tie is restocked.
We can send you swatches for some select ties to help your buying decision. If you need some advice with pairing just let us know.
We don't do sales, market one-time discounts or use pressure tactics. We do not inflate our prices so that we can offer discounts later. We do not participate in Black Friday, Cyber Monday or other promotions.
We are not fast fashion. We design timeless designs that will have an enduring place in your wardrobe for years to come.
We’re shoppers too, and we value your business. We have a 365 day return policy.
We are happy to exchange ties too, if you change your mind. When in doubt, reach out to Chantelle or Mensah.

Styling Your Tie
Yes, we do! We look the part with our signature knot: the Four-In-Hand. Aklasu only wears a Four-In-Hand.
We recommend starting with foundational pieces for all your garments when building your wardrobe from scratch. Foundational pieces are versatile and timeless.
When it comes to ties, start with Navy Blue, Black, Grey and Burgundy. We wouldn't consider bow ties foundational. But if you're considering one, we recommend starting with a batwing bow tie before venturing into more eccentric styles.

Caring for Your Tie
Yes. We have a few cardinal rules you should follow for silk ties.
Store your ties rolled-up and protected. The Canister that your tie shipped in duals as storage too. We do not recommend that you hang or fold your ties. Silk has 'memory' and can lead to persistent creases and wrinkles.
Don't leave your ties in a knot after wear. Untie your tie after every use. Roll it up and store it in an enclosure (safe from dust, fingers and fingernails).
Watch out for your nails. Poorly manicured nails can snag the fibres of your silk tie.
In general, avoid dry cleaning. Dry Cleaners are not made equal. If you want to rescue your tie from a stain, it’s worth giving the best local dry cleaner in your neighbourhood a try. But as a general maintenance practice, do not dry clean.
If you must, use caution. The key things to remember are:
Limit the heat setting (cool to medium temperature). Use a soft clean cloth to cover and shield your tie from direct heat. Apply minimal pressure on the iron. Gentle pressure, temperature and multiple passes should be enough. We do not recommend using the steam function.
