Striped regimental ties


Expressive, versatile and harmonious: regimental ties are an accessory that should not be missing in the wardrobe of a man with a refined style. A must-have with a historical origin, which holds a very precise meaning and symbolises a style code.

The origin of these men’s striped ties is due to England: each military, army corps, hospital and regiment had its own stripes with specific colours. British soldiers, during battles, used to identify and recognise themselves by using neckerchiefs with the colours of their regiment's flags. Even off the battlefield, they proudly wore a striped tie tightly knotted with the colours of their regiment.

Not just an accessory used in the military, but also in clubs, schools and universities. It was in the 1880s when members of Exeter College in Oxford first wore a regimental tie, whose combination of stripes and colours denoted membership of a specific university. From then on, regimental ties became the favourite accessory of the most refined English club and college goers.

Not just a simple striped tie: regimental ties are a symbol of unity, association and patriotism. Today, this accessory represents style, class and elegance and it is worn by gentlemen all over the world.

It is here among the pages of Fumagalli 1891's historical archives that the original stripes are searching for and then reproduced, both in the original colours and in imaginative nuances and variations of stripes. The hand stitching carried out by master craftsmen in Como and the choice of high quality fabrics, with a balanced combination of nuances and stripes, make it possible to create accessories suitable for any occasion.
