Introducing Panta: 6 Fold Ties by Christian
If you have ever looked at Style Forum, you may have come across Panta. Created by Ed Moral, his aim is to show that NY has some great clothing manufacturers. He was also in search of the perfect trouser, something that those of you who read this site, would have some experience in. For me, the cut is the most important factor. I can’t remember the last pair of trousers I purchased and didn’t have tailored.
I’m also starting to think side adjusters are the only way to go. His trousers are made from fabrics from England, Scotland and Italy’s Loro Piana. French horn buttons, hand-stitched by manufacturers responsibe for producing items form lines of Thom Browne, Band of Outsiders, Massimo Bizzochi and Brooks Brothers. He also has created some really thin unlined, hand rolled 6 fold ties. He kindly sent me a few to try, and try I did. One particularly caught my eye, green raw silk with natural slubs, unlined, untipped and hand sewn edges. Dimensions are 3 1/4 inches wide and 58 inches long, so slightly long for me, but really a delightful tie. Enthusiasm for local handmade production is something to be celebrated
