Vintage 1970s Brioni Rome Striped Silk Twill Necktie Mens Tie Made in Italy
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is an exceptional quality vintage mens necktie made by Brioni of Rome. Brioni, of course, is one of the most expensive tailors in the world, each garment hand made and sewn by expert workmen. Brioni was founded in 1945, and during the 50s was discovered by American actors Clark Gable and Cary Grant while working at the Cinecitta Studios in Rome. Brioni continues to supply made to measure suits to an exclusive clientele. Among their customers were Kirk Douglas, Henry Fonda, Rock Hudson, Al Pacino, Peter Jennings, Robert Wagner, John Wayne, Robert Kennedy, Nelson Mandela and Luciano Pavarotti. I believe that this tie dates to the 1970s from the width of it. It is in excellent condition, very clean, and obviously saw little use, and was well stored over the years. It measures 50” in length and 3 3/8” in width at its widest. It is made in a beautiful twill silk woven in diagonal bands in gold yellow, blue and brown. The label reads “Brioni Roma All Silk Made in Italy”.
Beautiful quality, very collectible - rare to find Brioni ties of this age!
