Perhaps you'll notice that many of the designers on the list are Italian. What can we say? They know how to make a great tie. Bellisimo! Fendi, one of the greats, was begun in Rome in 1918 as a fur and leather shop by Adele Casagrande. She married Edoardo Fendi in 1925 and they decided to change the shop's name to Fendi. The couple hired German creative director Karl Lagerfeld in 1962, and he designed the highly recognizable "FF" signature for Fendi. From this point on the company really branched out as a seller of luxury goods, and began creating stylish men's ties.
The Fendi designer tie is often made in rich, jewel toned colors with subtle geometric patterns and striping throughout. Of course, you can't forget the classic "FF" signature which graces many of the line's ties. Look for logos in the most unusual places, such as incorporated in small squares in the geometric design of a tie.
The man who wears Fendi can be both conservative, but stylish and hip at the same time. No one will ever notice the funky logos unless they are close enough to kiss you. It's no wonder so many men lust after the Fendi tie.
