The man of style need look no further than AKLASU for simple yet elegant ties. Based in Canada and employing skilled Italian craftsman, AKLASU prides itself on producing high quality accessories for the discerning gentleman. The material, primarily silk from Como, Italy, is woven on Jacquard looms and then sewn by hand. This is a company that understands that luxurious products are often dependent on tried and true methods, and centuries’ old craftsmanship. They currently offer neckties, batwing bowties, pocket squares with meticulously rolled hems, and lightweight scarves.
AKLASU’s specialty, however, is the six-fold necktie. Every fashionable gentleman should be well-versed in the basics of necktie construction, as the tipping, loop, and bar tack are all essential, often overlooked, elements of a necktie that make the true luxury tie stand out from the pack. Luckily, AKLASU is very upfront about what makes their six-fold ties distinct from your garden-variety three-fold tie.
In addition to quality construction, AKLASU’s ties come in a variety of understated colours and patterns, perfect for the man who wants to be stylish without being ostentatious. We’re particular fans of the White Striped Metallic Gold Tie, which is “the colour of your grandfather’s well-loved cufflinks or wedding ring.” Each tie in their signature six-fold collection is priced at $120 CAD.
