    Product informations

    A thin tie that stands for coolness rather than constraint. For distinctive style over conformity. For casual business in an androgynous look or for rebellion against norms. A thin tie for casual business or simply for unique style. For women in an androgynous look and for men in everyday life.

    Dedicated to the American political scientist Mark Lilla, this slim black tie is crafted from luxurious Japanese cotton. In his seminal work "The Once and Future Liberal", he discusses the power of nostalgia in politics. Which he believes holds immense significance. This slim tie from the in-house atelier of eigensinnig wien also plays with nostalgia.

    The Slim Black Tie

    This black tie is an unconventional, extraordinary accessory for men and women looking to make a distinctive statement. Unlike conventional ties, it's a thin tie that exudes subtle coolness. It's perfect for a business casual look for men. Women can create an androgynous look with this slim black tie from the atelier of eigensinnig wien.

    A special detail is the light gray design element that suggests an irregular heartbeat. This, in turn, alludes to the ups and downs that life brings. Or to the present as the intersection. Between the shining past, according to Mark Lilla, and the exciting future, according to eigensinnig wien.

    The Thin Tie Made from Premium Japanese Cotton

    The fabric used for this slim tie for men and women is high-quality Japanese cotton. It is produced in a traditional factory in Japan, founded in Nagoya over 150 years ago. A factory known for craftsmanship and the highest quality. It is a densely woven, medium-weight fabric that combines elegance, extravagance, and comfort.

    Further down this page, you will find more information about high-quality Japanese cotton.

    How to wear the slim black tie

    Wondering how and when to wear slim ties? The answers are simple:

    Slim ties are excellent for modern-cut suits with a narrower silhouette. They add a contemporary, refined note to the ensemble. Ideal for formal occasions requiring a touch of modernity or for creative meetings demanding subtle yet impactful style.

    They also pair wonderfully with a simple shirt and slim trousers, creating a smart-casual look.

    For an exceptionally individual twist, they can even be combined with unique oversized sweaters. Here, you can loosely tie the tie and let it hang casually to create a relaxed atmosphere.

    In the world of eigensinnig wien, it embodies the synthesis of traditional elegance and avant-garde freedom.

    The Androgynous Look for the Distinctive Woman

    Women can pair the unique, slim tie with the oversized shirt "Luna." Along with the short blazer coat "Pales" and the unique chino pants "Victoria", an androgynous pantsuit is created. Complete this look with the unique knit sweater "Dave" and the slim leather belt "2,5 Buckle" by Tagliovivo.

    The Business Casual Look for Men

    How does one actually wear a slim tie? We recommend the men's shirt "Freud" made from fine cotton. Or the extravagant muslin shirt "Gruen" for a business casual look for men.

    Combine with the men's jacket "Husserl" and the Low Crotch Pants "Walking Man" to create a distinctive outfit. The exclusive black leather bag "Bauletto L" by Tagliovivo perfectly rounds off the look.

    Exceptional Designer Fashion for Men and Women Made from High-Quality Japanese Cotton at eigensinnig wien

    Do you wish to purchase our products made from premium Japanese cotton fabric but have lingering questions? We provide answers on: What is special about Japanese cotton? Is Japanese cotton warm? How do you wash Japanese cotton?

    Here is a comprehensive informational guide for you:

    What Makes Japanese Cotton Special?

    The magic of Japanese cotton lies in its complexity. The outer surface exudes a subtly glossy roughness, embodying an elegantly extravagant style. The medium-weight, densely woven fabric made from 100% cotton creates an insulating barrier, ideal for colder seasons.

    The inner surface is ingeniously brushed, offering the material unparalleled comfort. The result is a fabric that doesn't itch, making it suitable even for those sensitive to wool. In its overall composition, the material presents itself as robust and breathable, providing a comfortable wearing experience. It's a harmonious union of durability and comfort.

    Where Does Our High-Quality Japanese Cotton Originate?

    Our Japanese cotton comes from a heritage-driven manufacturer in Nagoya, founded in 1864. From the onset, the facility has been a sanctuary of expertise and quality.

    Every detail is managed with meticulous precision and know-how. From the selection of the plant to the refinement of the fiber. Each step is a masterpiece in itself.

    Sustainability as an Art Form

    Sustainability is more than a promise for us; it is a fixed principle. Our Japanese cotton is cultivated in limited quantities and under strict ecological guidelines. This reflects our philosophy, which places great importance on sustainability and a respectful interaction with nature.

    How to Care for Our Unique Fashion Made from High-Quality Japanese Cotton

    How do I wash high-quality Japanese cotton?

    For machine washing, we recommend the wool-silk wash program or hand-wash program at 30°C. Use a mild detergent.

    How do I care for high-quality Japanese cotton?

    To dry, the garment should be laid out flat. A light ironing at low heat can revitalize the luster and structure of the fabric.


    Our exclusive collection of clothing made from Japanese cotton is diverse, covering a range of individual styles.

    From extraordinary jackets for women to winter jackets for men in black. Unique blouses or elegant black blouses for women, and the classic black shirt for men. A black sweater that perfectly complements your black wardrobe. Or extravagant harem pants for men and slim black trousers for women to complete your black suit.

    In this high-quality cotton fabric, the alchemical blend of art, craftsmanship, and sustainability manifests. An exquisite material that embodies style and elegance, reflecting the philosophy of eigensinnig wien in every detail.
