40 years ago, Rosanna and Luigi Monaco started a small company in Milan. Rosanna was the Master Tailor, and her husband took care of business aspects. Luigi really missed his native Postiglione, and after a few years, the growing family moved south, back to the small mountain town where he grew up. Many years later, Rosanna and Luigi are fortunate to have 3 of their sons, Daniele, Diego, and Ivan, working with them - the Monaco company is a real family business.
To make a silk designer necktie all by hand is a very time-consuming task: a full half metre of the finest silk from Como is cut, folded and stitched by hand, every step painstakingly performed by one of our 16 master tailors. . Every Luigi Monaco tie uses only the finest woven jacquard designs, which are created by the our design staff in Como - the world's "Silk Capitol".
The silk for Luigi Monaco neckties gets special treatment all throughout the manufacturing process, ending with a final wash with French "Savon de Marseille", or Marseille Soap. This is why all Luigi Monaco ties have that extra lustre and brilliance that other ties lack. All Luigi Monaco ninefold neckties feature handcrafted and luxurious details, such as the pure virgin wool lining, the brand label made by satin woven silk, the visible slip-stitch and the hand-made bar tack. The tipping is also made of finest silk, with colour picture of Postiglione’s view.
The Luigi Monaco collection offers a fresh approach to sartorial elegance.
Luigi Monaco ninefold neckties are available in the finest boutiques in Italy and in many countries around the world. When you see and feel the Luigi Monaco neckties, you will agree with us that Postiglione and Luigi Monaco are important words in any tie-lovers sartorial vocabulary.
