Don’t let the American-sounding name fool you: This men’s neckwear label has been producing ties in Milan since 1991. The brand’s well-priced cravats ($49–$99) are popular in its native country, where it has more than 40 locations, but remain relatively under-the-radar in the States (there are only six shops in the U.S). Both New York storefronts are pint-size yet filled to the brim with neckties in a variety of vivid shades and prints, ranging from classic paisley and plaid to quirky floral and polka-dot patterns. All styles, including the thickest version made from seven folds of fabric ($99) and a classic cut that comes in both regular and skinny widths ($49), are handmade from Italian silk. Two exceptions are houndstooth wool ties ($59) and bow ties ($55), which are more appropriate for winter. Other finishing touches include marble cufflinks ($210), leather belts ($89) and printed silk pocket squares ($25).
