Created in 2010 by Gianni Cerutti and Martha Passaggio, “Passaggio Cravatte” offers a bespoke ties service. The duo got a unique selection of luxurious vintage fabrics (some 50 or 60 years old). The ties are cut directly in the city of Robbio (an hour’s drive from Milan). Later, they are sewn entirely by hand in Naples, according to the ancient Neapolitan tradition.

After many fascinating emails with the delightful Gianni Cerutti. This week, I received my beautiful seven fold tie with unlined construction.

I‘m really pleased about my Passaggio Cravatte bespoke tie. My tie got a nice structure, very light, great shape and beautifully hand-rolled edge.

Gianni Cerutti is very welcoming, passionate about tailoring and craftsmanship. Orders can be made via email. He answers his emails very quickly. Gianni also receives clients regularly at the Four Seasons in Milan.
