My Favorite Vittorio J Necktie

As the lead designer of an up and coming necktie company, I frequently get asked which one of my ties is my favorite. Its a pretty easy question to answer considering I named this tie after my very own mother!

This tie is definitely the Cristina Tie. (It doesn't hurt that is one of the best selling Vittorio J ties out there.)

Checks, in my opinion, are the hardest ties to design. This one took me a whole month to perfect. The pattern itself is pretty simple but the color combo took forever to figure out.

I design ties on paper first before we put it on silk. Normally, there is only a 5% chance a design will be part of a collection but I knew immediately that this one was a winner. I just love the way the purples on this tie pop out. Looks especially great with my custom grey suit from Michael Andrews Bespoke.

This tie is sold out at the moment but I am planning to replenish my collection with this tie.
What do you all think? Love or hate?
