British, elegant, voluminous, perfect for special events. The Windsor tie is known also as “Scappino” knot and there are different theories about its origins. It is thought that the duke Edoardo Windsor – future King Eduard VIII – made it. Other legends want that Domenico Scappino, personal tailor men of Savoia’s family, realized it for the first time.
