Product Review: Cravatta Peliano Silk Knit Tie
Last week I got the Gordon Gekko 2.0 silk knit tie in the mail from Pelliano. If you’re not familiar with Pelliano, they are a dutch company that produces knit ties, pocket squares, scarves, and just recently started making blazers (that actually look pretty damn intriguing). I’d been looking for a striped navy knit for a while, and this one seemed to fit the bill perfectly. After recieving the tie, I can confirm that it does fit the bill perfectly.
The first thing that you’ll notice about this knit is the pointed tip. All of my knit ties have flat bottoms, but too much of anything ends in monotony, so I really like the way this tie mixes up my knit collection. It’s a great change of pace.
The silk that makes up this knit is incredible. it has an ultra fine gauge that gives the tie a beautiful feel. It’s smooth to say the least. The fine gauge does give the tie a slight sheen upon close inspection, so if you’re a matte kind of person, take that into account. Also, the color of the silk is different on the skinny end of the tie, a gray/silver color that gives the tie another dimension.
This is a beautiful piece of neckwear to look at and feel, but the neck padding is what really made me love this tie. on the strip of silk that rests on the neck. You’ll find the Pelliano logo, along with the origin and claim of the worlds best silk. However, you’ll also find the words “Gianni would be proud,” a nod to the Italian style legend. I thought this was a great little detail and something that makes a this piece of neckwear unique.
I’m extremely satisfied with the tie, and at three inches in width, it falls perfectly into my neckwear collection. They retail for around a hundred dollars, so if you don’t feel strongly about your neckwear, they may not be for you. However, I will say that the tie is beautiful and worth the price tag.
