Tied Up With Savoir Faire

As a man who wears ties on many occasions I am always on the hunt for ties that will set me apart from the crowd. Now I do not mean some multi-coloured polyester number with a bad paisley design or a cartoon character on it either.

Ties should be subtle and compliment an outfit not distract from it.

The frilled end of these wool ties is what caught my attention and the diagonal stripes of these ties have just the right amount of impact without being brash. A very clever update on the traditional silk striped tie.

Perfect for autumn/winter. Currently they’re on display at Capsule Paris. Something to add to the wish list!


  1. Hello David:
    These wonderful ties are certainly more dash than brash and would, we are sure, complement a variety of outfits.

  2. I see these working very well with a tweed. Alas, Florida climate doesn't give much opportunity for that!

  3. I love ties...I really like ties that have some uniqueness to them but at the same time can blend well with different outfits...I think I just have one tie that´s like completely showstopper..it has a beautiful red and grey paisley motif..Ironically is the one tie I´ve been having problems to wear cause it dosen´t fit many outfits haha

    The Black Label

  4. I too have to wear a tie every day....alas, I've fallen into quite a rut.
    Maybe I should spice things up a bit.

  5. I must send you a photo of my draw of ties. Two draws. Once used for forks and knives and spoons. It is in a credenza which I have turned into a chest-of drawers!

  6. I too always wear ties and have a whole bunch of them. I do not understand when men try to be funny when they buy a tie with a whacky cartoon character on it and wear it to work.. I rather stick to the classics and look sharp as tack.. I am definitely liking these ties!

    All the best, Angel

  7. i'm lucky. i have slew of old ties that were my grandfather's. one of them has a fringed bottom. one upon a time, i used to wear them. hmm, maybe i should take some photos....

  8. I love ties with texture...like a fine textile. These are very cool.
