Last summer when I was in Paris I made a stop at the legendary Arnys. Which has since been bought by the LVMH juggernaut in its quest to build out Berluti. During my visit I fell in love with Arnys Cravate d’Atelier (house tie) and vowed to purchase one. And as fortune would have it, I was able to acquire one before the sell out. And for what its worth, I absolutely love the tie. It is so unique, in both appearance and feel.
Anyway, on this day (the day of Dandy Talk) I wanted to keep everything simple to try to draw attention to the tie. The ensemble is founded on burgundy double monks from Septieme Largeur. The temperature was in the low 70′s and the sun was out in full force so warm weather fabrics were necessary. I opted for a white cotton/linen button down and a solid navy wool/mohair fresco suit, both from MyTailor. And of course braces, the burgundy grenadine set that I designed (and am selling). And yes, a white linen pocket square.
