Randa Accessories has doubled the space and size of its Como, Italy, neckwear design center and enhanced the digital capabilities attached to the 100,000 designs in its archives.
Randa, the largest men’s accessories firm based in the U.S., invested 2.5 million euros, or about $3.4 million at current exchange, to expand the 28-year-old center, principally dedicated to neckwear design, to 12,000 square feet from 6,000 square feet and build the size of the staff to 20 from nine. The investment includes both the build-out of the physical plant and expenditures made for technology to accelerate the digitization of an archive of designs dating back to 1910.

"I thought years ago that [Jaime] was going to bite the bullet. [The writers] knew who would be left standing, but they never told us so it was this constant guessing game," says @gameofthrones actor @nikolajwilliamcw.
