This is a rarer Soviet Russian mechanism originating from the 1960's. It is a comfortable and ergonomic look, enough to make a statement yet remain suitably subtle. The circular shape sits perfectly central on the tie, displaying the complex intricacies, clearly. Clean and neutral, and is quite versatile with most ties. We suggest knitted ties as it is open-weave.
