In 1939, a young Italian boy called Giuseppe Esposito was fascinated by the distinguished, elegant gentlemen that he saw in the streets and cafés of his home town of Naples. 

Giuseppe was particularly interested in what these gentlemen wore around their necks - their ties. Such was his enthusiasm that he decided to learn the art of tie-making from the Neapolitan masters. He subsequently opened a small shop – Esposito Cravatte - devoted exclusively to producing and selling the Neapolitan tie.

In his search for perfection, Giuseppe Esposito forged links with the best of Neapolitan and northern Italian silk makers. The ultimate result was the “seven fold” tie - a unique silk tie that is carefully folded and re-folded seven times, resulting in unparalleled elegance.

And so was born a family tradition, based on the pursuit of perfection through obsessive attention to the smallest detail of every single stitching point. This reached its peak in the form of the “nine fold” tie which firmly established Esposito Cravatte as the pinnacle of Neapolitan tie-making.
