This printed purple silk foulard tie is the epitome of a warm weather men's accessory. It is lightweight, soft to the touch and has a chalky hand, similar to ancient madder. Fort Belvedere uses a soft interlining that yields into a smaller knot compared to our jacquard ties. For a larger knot, go with a longer tie and go for a windsor or double windsor knot. The same patter is also available in purpleor blue, which are both perfect for spring summer outfits as well.
