Linen has always been synonymous with summer. Linen is light-weight, beautifully crisp and the matte finish means that it can look much more contemporary and fresh than something with a shimmer to it. Linen is the ideal way to realise a print and let it stand out. Printing on linen allows for crisp, clean lines and a flawless finish.
You'll also notice that a linen tie had a more dense and assertive knot than a silkier fabric offers, this is a great way to add character to any outfit. The sturdy knot structure also allows you to really exhibit the print of your tie, making linen the perfect choice for a printed summer tie. Silk ties are ideal for evening-wear and more elaborate dress wear, they also work well in business environments.
If you are after something that can be highly versatile, ideal for weekends away, casual dinners, summer weddings and business too, then a printed linen tie is a fantastic choice.
Lesina Italian Linen Tie
This charming design features a floral motif that is subtle, timeless and hugely versatile. Realised in navy and white, this beautiful linen tie can be worn in a number of different situations. Formed from 100% Italian linen, this necktie offers the crispness, structure and body that you would expect from a linen tie.
The pure silk lining adds to the form and injects a touch of luxury. The linen holds its shape beautifully but also has a welcome tactility to it and is beautifully smooth. To really exhibit the pattern of this tie, a simple Windsor knot is a good choice. A full Windsor will really provide a nice solid knot, especially as linen has such great density to it.

Fold it loosely to maintain the laid-back feel while keeping the navy and white tones united.
