Diplomatic Ties 380: House of Kydos

By Daniel Blockert|January 28, 2017|Diplomatic Ties - The Series|0 comments

Received this unlined, 7-fold jacquard tie and a silk pocket square with a traditional motif from the island of Skyros from the Greek tiemaker House of Kydos (http://kydos.gr/). First time I wear them but very promising so far. I especially like the very soft handle of the tie without it being shapeless. Coat from Hentsch Man, jacket from Gieves & Hawkes Royal Collection, bespoke shirt, tie and ps from House of Kydos, Berg & Berg pants, Zegna scarf and shoes from Edward Green.

An attempt at “controlled clashing”. Pink and burgundy are of course difficult colours to match, but not necessarily impossible. Here the clash is calmed down a bit with a charcoal chalkstripe suit. Zegna suit, Rayner & Sturges shirt, tie from Rubinacci, Vanda ps and shoes from Carmina. Click on the headline for more pics.

Since my wife isn’t in town my son took a few pictures. I think he managed pretty well. Still snowy in Geneva. Too cold actually to be outside without a coat. DB suit from Fallan & Harvey, shirt and ps from Drake’s, Shibumi tie, Bugatti hat and shoes from Alden. Click on the headline for more pics.
