We’ve got the perfect tie for all the big days in your diary.



Words: T. MacInnis

You can have an amazing suit, the perfect shirt and a great pair of shoes, but the finishing details can make or break your outfit. You want to go with something that complements your suit without overpowering it; makes sense for the event and season; and ultimately elevates your look.

What better way to add something special to your outfit than a silk tie or pocket square, designed, printed and hand-finished in Italy’s Como region? Read on to find out why a Tessitura Bottinelli tie is set to be your go-to summer wedding accessory.

What makes Tessitura Bottinelli ties so special?

Tessitura Bottinelli has been making ties for almost a century in Como, a region renowned for its silk craftsmanship and long history of tie-making. The Tessitura Bottinelli mill stands out as one of the best, thanks to their approach to tie-making that combines textile traditions with cutting-edge printing technology. They’ve applied that expertise to our collection of Moss x Bottinelli ties.

Made with Fuji silk that’s soft but holds its shape, these ties will hold a knot for the whole day and dimple perfectly. The paisley designs give a nod to that traditional tie-making, but modern colours and bit of texture make them feel right for now. With a Moss x Bottinelli tie, you’ll get that elusive balance of versatility and impact, and nothing about your outfit will look like an afterthought.


What should I wear with my Italian-made tie?

It only makes sense to pair your Italian tie with an Italian suit, but at the end of the day, as long as your suit fits well and the colours work with the tie you’ve chosen, you’ll look your best. For a winter wedding, go for flannel – our Barberis light grey flannel suit works well as a neutral backdrop for all the Moss x Botinelli ties. If you’ve got a wedding later in the summer and you think it might be chilly, opt for a tweed suit in a blue shade that’ll create a tonal look .

What other accessories will work with my Italian tie?

When it comes to the rest of your finishing touches, start with your pocket square. Each of our Moss x Bottinelli ties has a matching pocket square, so that’s an easy (and smart) choice to make – but mixing the patterns in the same shade, by wearing a paisley tie with a medallion print pocket square or vice versa, will lift the look to the next level. Then, keep everything else simple and let the prints shine with a versatile pair of brogues and classic cufflinks. And don’t forget your socks – they’re a great opportunity to pull a colour from your other accessories and tie everything together.


A high-quality, Italian-made silk tie is always a good idea, because not only will you look smart at your event, but it’ll also stand the test of time. Choosing a Moss x Bottinelli tie means you’ll have a special piece in your occasion wardrobe you’ll want to reach for, year after year.
