Diplomatic Ties 427: Drake’s

By Daniel Blockert|April 22, 2018|Diplomatic Ties - The Series|0 comments

One of the most versatile and beautiful fabrics for a tie is the grenadine silk. Usually grenadines are solid, but you do find grenadines with polka dots or stripes. Large spots are more unusual, especially superimposed like on this tie from Drake’s. The suit and the ps are from Borrelli, the shirt is bespoke, Drake’s tie and shoes from Carmina.

The weather in Geneva is tricky right now. Looks warm, but then shocks you by still being pretty nippy. Jacket from Isaia, Tom Ford shirt, Borrelli tie, ps from Shibumi, pants and scarf from Berg & Berg and shoes from Tricker’s. Click on the headline for more pics.
