Diplomatic Ties 486: Götrich

Love this tie from Götrich in bamboo. Made in a fabric from Hardy Minnis. Nice texture, soft, chalky touch, drapes well and ties a great knot. (Since people have already asked: no, I wasn’t paid to say this). Jacket from Sartoria Formosa, Borrelli shirt, tie from Götrich, Shibumi ps, pants from Berg & Berg, Paraboot shoes and shades from Moscot. Scent: Parfum d’Empire Acqua di Scandola. Click on the headline for more pics.
