Seven Fold

Robb Report Singapore - - The Bespoke Issue -

This Ja­panese-run Floren­tine com­pany spe­cialises, as the name sug­gests, in sev­en­fold ties. Here, rather than in­sert­ing an in­ner lin­ing to give thick­ness, a sin­gle piece of cloth is ex­pertly folded seven times, cre­at­ing a tie of ex­cep­tional weight and drape. Seven Fold of­fers this con­nois­seurial sar­to­rial es­sen­tial ei­ther in a se­lec­tion of ready-made styles, or cre­ated be­spoke in a cloth and to a length and width of your choos­ing.

Founder Kengi Kaga is heav­ily in­flu­enced by the late-1940s ‘golden era’ of menswear, and his ties are distin­guished by an un­usual ap­proach to cloth, of­ten util­is­ing fab­rics such as hop­sack wool/cot­ton, slubby wool/silk/linen, and thick vin­tage silks with a matte fin­ish and dry tex­ture, re­sult­ing in a look and feel that is ut­terly unique. www.sev­en­
