Fashion & Style: When it comes to luxury neckwear, no one does it better than RVR Neckwear.
Robert Valdes-Rodriguez, the designer behind the brand knows something about ties as a former Wall Street banker. The banker was inspired to create his own ties after he found that his personal favorite was no longer available.
Robert's involvement in the business world led to him create neckties, which were produced with unusual materials, including metals. He explains, "Because I was in the trading business I saw that metals were coming back." The inspiration to use metal created one of the company's first bestsellers, a $210 Italian silk design that's been dipped in liquid sterling silver.
The metal-dipped tie was the springboard for a line of navy and 24-karat-gold ties that are sold at the exclusive newly reopened Plaza Hotel in New York City.
Not all the ties from RVR are dipped in metal, but they are all made from the most luxurious silks available, self-tipped, and hand-tailored by perfectionist craftspeople to create the perfect necktie for any occasion, whether it is pleasure or business.
RVR Neckwear pays special attention to all the details, ensuring that the man who wears it will be more than satisfied with the exclusive purchase and exude the confidence that comes from wearing a carefully crafted luxury item.
As Robert explains, "In my opinion, the tie is the one menswear accessory that can make or break your look. You can hide an inferior belt, or mediocre pair of shoes but you can't hide a bad tie."
RVR Neckwear includes a replica of Robert's favorite necktie while he was still on Wall Street, a look he promises will never be discontinued: a classic blue pin-dot.
