The knitted silk or ‘silk knit’ tie is an incredibly versatile item in any tie collection. With its unique texture and drape, it is immediately more relaxed than a standard tie while retaining a sophisticated edge. In a dark colour such as navy, or especially black, it becomes a classic addition to an evening suit. Some feel that the silk knit is a mere trend, however those with true taste know that it is a classic tie style that is always featured in a dapper man’s wardrobe. Petronius, founded in 1926, is a family owned maker of fine Italian ties. Through three generations the Wollisch family have channelled their passion for hand-made ties into producing some of the finest ‘cravatte’ in the world. In 1926, Luigi Wollisch established his first workshop in the Via Rugabella in Milan, naming his company after the Roman procunsul Petronio, who was known throughout the empire as an arbiter of taste. Today the family still uphold the scrupulous standards that have made Petronius a byword for quality among the style cognoscenti and a favourite of such icons as Lino Ieluzzi.
