Diplomatic Ties 398: Adriano Dirnelli
When I heard that style icon Adriano Dirnelli had started his own tie brand I was naturally curious. I have a lot of respect for the maker he uses and untipped, handrolled, handstitched, 7-fold madder ties wasn’t something that I would let pass without trying. I started by ordering two of them and they arrived this week.
I know from experience that you can never pass judgement on the quality of a tie immediately. You have to wear and live with it for a while to see how it behaves, how the shape evolves, how the fabric deals with wear, if the construction is solid enough etc. But I can say this about my first Dirnelli ties: they look and feel very promising! I have a feeling there will be more of these in my wardrobe in the near future…
The Dirnelli tie is worn with a suit from Burberry, Inglese shirt, Vanda ps and shoes from Allen Edmonds. Click on the headline for more pics.
