In a world full of choices, it can be hard to make the right one. Our goal is to help men make the right choice for menswear. We believe the right choice enriches the wearer's self-worth today and decades from now.

We're driven to provide thoughtfully designed staples made with a focus on longevity in both design and quality. Our products follow an in-house design process that evaluates visual balance, versatility, longevity, and durability. Three core principles guide the process and it permeates through everything we do:

  • Always design so it's timeless
  • Use the best raw materials
  • Make it so it lasts forever.

Always design so it's timeless.

Refined Designs

Good design is about creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts. It is where style and substance intersect and form and function meld. It isn't overly complicated and doesn't change as seasons pass. Aklasu eschews trend-chasing in exchange for timeless quality and unquestioned value.

Understated, even minimalist, designs become classics for one reason: they're products of thousands of hours of technique honing and fine-tuning. They're created based on proven, time-tested principles.

Every Aklasu piece is designed to have an enduring place in your wardrobe. Our design aesthetics embrace timelessness and understatement. We are firm believers that goods should always be made to last.

Use the best raw materials.

Superior Materials

We only use the highest quality raw materials for our products and we are partial to natural materials: silk, wool and cotton.

We source silk from Como, Italy, a city world-renowned for its fine silks and handcrafted goods. Our socks (coming soon) are made from Mako Egyptian cotton that has been combed, twisted, mercerized and gassed. Mako cotton comes from the Northern region of Egyptian nestled in the fertile reaches of the Nile River. In one of the most fertile grounds on the planet, this unique cotton has silk-like properties: shine, softness and strength.

Our obsession with producing timeless products that have an enduring place within your wardrobe means we always consider the longevity of materials every step of the way.

Make it so it lasts forever.

Meticulous Craftsmanship

Whether machine or artisan hands, or a combination thereof, Our efforts to produce products to the highest standards means every Aklasu garment is made to last.

Every tie is painstakingly handcrafted using traditions that have been perfected over generations. This artisan approach ultimately means no two ties are ever the same, and you can enjoy garments with a deep heritage.

For our socks, we utilize industry-leading 240-needle machines to produce a luxurious product. Skilled artisans hand-stitch a smooth and fine linked seam for extra comfort around your toes. The heels and toes are reinforced for added durability too.
