Following an interesting post on A Suitable Wardrobe I’ve decided to get rid of one of my Charvet cashmere-silk neckerchieves. Like their counterpart Hilditch & Key Paris, Charvet has a small stock of these gossamer-thin, light and ethereally soft numbers. Being Charvet, most of the prints are abstracts and more expensive than H&K Paris – retail is around 350 euros. This one is chocolate brown tiger/zebra stripes on sandy tan ground. Made in France. Handrolled hem. Can be worn a variety of ways, even useful to keep in the office for when they turn the A/C up as long as you are very secure in your sexuality. 33” on a side. $75 shipped in US, $85 shipped internationally.

Richard James Savile Row sterling silver and handblown glass cube and sphere cufflinks. I’ve been culling through my cufflinks as I’ve realized what I do and don’t wear regularly. These are fantastic, eyecatching, elegant and just don’t quite fit with my work and life style nowadays. RJ first introduced his line of cufflinks in 1999 or 2000, moving from blown glass spheres in contrasting colors that recalled marbles to cubes and later on studded “Sputnik” variants. The quality was excellent and the styling distinctive – very original and yet at some level atavistic. These are fitting examples: red glass cubes on one end of a sterling silver stem, orange spheres on the other. The glass is translucent allowing for a wonderful play of light. I’ve tried to capture that in my photos. Yes, they are sold with the box; I’ve worn them a few times but they’ve seen very little use and are in excellent condition.

Hallmarked and marked “RJ” as well on the stems; made in England.

As many of you may have gathered from my sale threads, I have been a bit of a collector of interesting vintage things that appeal to me. Sometimes I realize I have bought something just for curiosity rather than its utility in my own wardrobe. These two Stefano Ricci for the old Ballantyne silk ties handmade in Italy are an example of such items. While beautiful in their own right, I ended up always choosing other ties to wear each morning. Each tie bears the label “Designed by Stefano Ricci for Ballantyne” – as they’re handmade in Italy I believe Ricci made them as well, much like how Edward Green made the English shoes labeled “Designed by Edward Green for Paul Stuart.” Certainly not all Ballantyne ties are or were made by Stefano Ricci; I have no idea who makes the ties for the current incarnation of Ballantyne (which is all made in Italy or Romania except for the hand intarsia sweaters), but I feel pretty safe that these are examples of some of the best tiemaking for what used to be one of the very best cashmere companies.

Ballantyne by Stefano Ricci 1: Neat burgundy double paisley with gold corners print on bronze ground; textured gold tipping. “Designed by Stefano Ricci for Ballantyne” woven into keeper and printed on the tail. 3 1/16” at widest and approx. 56” long. [st]$30[/st] $25 shipped in US, [st]$36[/st] $31 internationally.

Ballantyne by Stefano Ricci 2: Tiny white paisley with highlight outline on burgundy ground with diagonal ribbing effect; textured red tipping. At the tail the print changes to a psychedelic plaid/diamond print affair, mildly subversive in a very constipated way. “Designed by Stefano Ricci for Ballantyne” woven into keeper and printed on the tail. 3 1/16” at widest and approx. 56” long. [st] $30[/st] $25 shipped in US, [st] $36[/st] $31 internationally.

Wonderful CBD Petronius tie: geometric shapes in muted tans and greens on a midnight blue ground. Self keeper. The nec plus ultra of OTR Italian tiemaking, less twee than Marinella, less fetishistic than Rubinacci, yet more Inner Circle than either of them. If the Inner Circle hadn’t been smashed like some kind of Horcrux at the moment of the forum redesign, that is. Lovely soft silk with crisp print. 3.5” at widest by 56” long. $40 shipped in US, $46 shipped internationally.

Bright red silk twill Petronius tie with small cream and yellow paisleys outlined in dark blue. Another subversive CBD tie – soporific pattern with confidently bright ground, confront each new day with this tie. Self keeper tacked at sides and stitched into center seam. Hand made in Italy, by a maker at the cutting edge of SF MC groupthink. 58” long by 3.5” at widest. . [st] $40[/st] $35 shipped in US, [st] $46[/st] $41 shipped internationally.

The following is one of those ties that you just don’t see the likes of – Petronius silk tie with what appears to be medieval Chinese images. A curiosity like an Hermès scarf tie, only rarer – perhaps you can accessorize it with a Drakes Moghul scene pocket square for extra cultural confusion. Hand made in Italy, printed silk twill with a silvery white ground, colors are teals, tans, bronzes and yellows. 57” long by 3.75” at widest. .

Mariano Rubinacci London House heavy woven silk repp tie. Azure blue and burgundy stripes on a gold ground. This is the real Rubinacci stuff from Naples, not the old licensed stuff from Barneys or the new licensed stuff from Harrods. Generously luxurious feel, and a width that presages Tom Ford’s flamboyantly wide stances. Self keeper tacked at sides and stitched into center seam. Just under 4” at widest by long. $36 shipped in US, $42 shipped internationally.

It took me a long time to realize I hate striped repp ties. This gorgeous heavy silk Battistoni version is thus my loss. Handmade in Italy in pure ruby red thick repp silk with thin sober blue-grey striping. A great tie needing a great home. Heck, it’s even tipped in fancy jacquard monogrammed B’s (not to be confused with /b/ which would feature more tentacles and desu). 3 1/8” at widest and 54” long. $27 shipped in US, $33 shipped internationally.

Super CBD Battistoni silk twill tie : tan and red diamonds with green, red and tan medallions printed on midnight blue ground. Hand made in Italy. Unlike its sister tie above, no pattern number printed on it, but I’ve got Battistoni stuff that doesn’t even have the name on it. This is the sober stuff to wear when you mean business. Soft silk with almost powdery feel. 56” long by 3.625” at widest. $35 shipped in US, $41 shipped internationally.

Brigatti of Milan paisley tie made by Anselmo Dionisio.

I suppose a subset of splashy ties are woven figure ties. Some follow:


Blue and green repp silk tie with woven shield with coronet and what appears to be a lion rampant. The heraldic shield picks out the colors of the striped ground: burgundy, gold and green. The stripe pattern also features pale grey and royal blue. Made for an old shop in Lisbon. Just under 3.75” at widest and 56” long. . $22 shipped in US, $28 shipped internationally.

A very nice navy repp weave with red currency symbols (dollars, pounds, Deutschmarks, lira), made in England for the pukka English Sports Shop of Bermuda but I had a reading comprehension FAIL and discovered it was polyester. It looked and felt like the real thing and is quite interesting and not loud as such ties go. Amaze your friends, break the ice at naughty parties. Only your hairdresser will know for sure. 56” long by 3” at widest. $15 shipped in US, $21 shipped internationally.

I’m selling a bunch of pocket squares as I now wear Kent Wang’s RJ cat pocket squares almost exclusively. While I urge any of you interested to keep the posse alive and purchase one (I derive no benefit from Kent’s sales except the satisfaction of seeing my late cat’s memory prolonged), I also urge you to invest in my PSs.


Henry Poole cotton pocket square. Made for the Japanese market, where Poole has had a license since the 1960s. Amusing tan and oxblood check design. “Henry Poole” is embroidered in one corner along with the Poole insignia, which I believe is based on the arms of Emperor Napoleon III: Henry Poole (the man) and one of the English Rothschilds advanced Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte, nephew of the first emperor of the name, funds to return to France from his forced exile in England. He did and within a few years had overturned the Second Republic and made himself Emperor of France, to the consternation of Marx, Baudelaire, Hugo, and others. Once emperor, Napoleon III enthusiastically continued to give his custom to Poole. Celebrate your own Dix-huit Brumaire with this square! $20 shipped in US, $26 shipped internationally.

Thick wool tie in something almost like a boucle knit made in Scotland by McNeil in brown and tan stripes. Perfect for a hairy tweed coat. The knit gives the colors depth and tone. 3” at widest by 54” long – bear in mind that with a wool tie you don’t need much length to get a satisfyingly substantial knot. $30 shipped in US, $36 shipped internationally.

Unlined wool tie in red, sky and red stripes on an olive ground. Simple, old school, dashingly thin. Stitched at the ends because it is unlined. This is apparently the pattern of the Old Saltleians but as long as you stay away from their rugby club you should stay unmolested. 2.75” at widest by 53” long. . $30 shipped in US, $36 shipped internationally.

The Scotch House Munrospun virgin wool tweed unlined tie in a simple check pattern of brick red and mischievous fuchsia pink on grey. Surprisingly fine and light for wool thanks to the unlined construction. Edges are stitched. The colors are beautifully heathered so that the fuchsia is extremely muted – see pics for details.

Sometimes you just want a good silk print tie in vibrant colors with a classic pattern that has become new again. This is that tie. Large paisleys in bright red and olive green on a dark red ground. Similar to current Drake patterns as seen in the Ben Silver catalog. Made in England, not sure who by, but the “PS” logo makes me think it might be Paul Salgo (no, not Paul Smith). You know where you are with this tie. You’re in the right. 57.5” long by just under 3.75” at widest. [st] $23[/st] $21 shipped in US, [st] $29[/st] $27 shipped internationally.

Here, a summery yet conservative silk twill tie. There’s a playfulness in the pattern from the Kelly green oblique diamonds with offwhite centers that are printed on a navy ground. Playful, but the proportions are discreet enough not to be loud. Self keeper. Made in England for Maus & Hoffman, haven’t tracked down who by. Seize the day and this tie. 3 5/8” at widest by 58” long. [st] $23[/st] $21 shipped in US, [st] $29[/st] $27 shipped internationally.

Extraordinary bright red divan design real Viyella tie made in England by Michelson’s. They don’t make them like this any more, largely because those two brands are just defunct names. Michelson’s was the parent company of Holliday & Brown when the two were acquired by the silk weavers Mantero of Como about ten years ago. Like H&B it had made ties for a number of well-known outfitters and haberdashers, but this is a bit of a splashy departure. The pattern is crisp and clear, the interlining thin enough to tie a normal knot (always a concern with wool ties). Being real Viyella woven in Scotland, the material is a proprietary 55% wool 45% cotton mix. Hand is soft but not limp. Just 3” at widest by 54” long. $25 shipped in US, $31 shipped internationally.

Yet another piece of tailoring history – slim tie made in England by Dare & Dolphin, shirt and tie makers of Piccadilly, celebrated by Apparel Arts (yes, the Apparel Arts that those knowledgeable departed members used to talk about) as one of the very best haberdashers in London. Sober and CBD silk twill with concentric blue and green medallion and lozenge prints on burgundy ground. I’ve realized it’s a bit too soporific for me but may be of interest to another person out there who wishes to wear it (sincerely or ironically) or wants to add to his collection. 2¾” at widest by 55” long. $25 shipped in US, $31 shipped internationally.

Daft Kilgour, French & Stanbury silk tie with oversized printed pheasant motif. From the materials tag, I think it is by David Evans, but I can’t confirm. Pheasants in green and dark red on navy ground. Only mad dogs, Englishmen, and discerning SFers would wear this. So British Alan Flusser and FNB must have procreated to generate it. Made in England. This tie appears to have been narrowed at some point in its life, but this is not apparent from the front of the tie or when worn. 3.25” wide by 58.5”.

From the storied Savile Row tailors Wells of Mayfair, a classically British forest green spot tie on navy ground printed silk twill tie. Everything just so, discreet and understated, from the Maddox St firm now integrated into the juggernaut Davies & Son. Join a client roster that included Randian lizard gnome Alan Greenspan and former Treasury SecretaryBill Simon – who in a Wells fitting room hammered out the details of Britain’s emergency IMF loan in 1976! So wear it as a trophy of how all teh British’s bases are belong to us. 3.25” at widest and 56” long. $21 shipped in US, $27 shipped internationally.

Best of British tiemakers… Holliday & Brown, Drakes, Charles Hill and Cravats:
I’m culling out a number of my ties, some too CBD, others not CBD enough, many private label, from my favorite British makers… their clients were fickle and switched around (it’s astonishing how many people H&B made for at some point, rather like EG with private label shoes) until most raced to the bottom and hung them out to dry, with the result that Charles Hill and Holliday & Brown are now either dormant or defunct (H&B’s web address now just forward to the site of their owner, Italian silk weaver Mantero; Charles Hill left survivors at Seaman & Spearm and T&A but as a company it seems gone, gone, gone…). I’ve seen brands ping-pong among all of the makers named above, with Cravats as a bit of a dark horse. It along with its affiliate the shirtmaker Cleeve of London were purchased last year by Rayner & Sturges, itself owned by the shop Alexander Boyd, with guarantees production would continue – I’ve even seen some Cravats in the US market under a new label.


Refreshingly CBD tie by Drake’s. Red and tan paisley with white blossom print on navy silk twill ground. Hand made in England for Carroll & Co. of Beverly Hills. Self keeper tacked at sides. 3 5/8” wide by 58” long. [st] $30[/st] $28 shipped in US, [st] $36[/st] $34 shipped internationally.

Drake’s paisley/divan design in dark green, navy and burgundy with cream. Thick silk twill and a pattern with more depth and detail every time I look at it. Self keeper. Subtle, certain to grow on you. Something to ponder like a Zen koan: this Drake’s tie has tags for both Drake’s and Charles Hill, which is a two-headed chicken like aberration. AlanC and I did once discover that the two companies were once affiliated, but I’ve never seen a tie with both a Drake’s makers tag and a Charles Hill “Handmade in England” label (with the little “CH”). Twice the goodness in one tie? 3.5” by 57”. [st] $28[/st] $26 shipped in US, [st] $34 [/st] $32 shipped internationally.

Charles Hill printed silk twill tie. Green ground with red and blue ovals and tiny paisley ovals/lozenges. The silk has a wonderfully soft, powdery feel although I can’t commit to saying it’s madder. The heathery mix of colors is similar to such prints, though. Self keeper. Hand made in England for the French cashmere shop Hobbs. 3.25” by 57”.

Sambrook Witting blue and green small paisley on burgundy wool challis tie. The wool makes this subtle and business-friendly design interesting. The print and colors are crisp enough and the wool twill fine enough to make this look like a deeply textured silk. Made in England for Boggi. The print is discreet enough to be CBD yet the motifs surprisingly are very current – paisleys are suddenly hot again. Harrumph. 3.5” at widest by 56” long.

Sambrook Witting paisley silk print tie: CBD red and old gold paisleys outlined in green on dark navy silk twill ground. Very soft feel with surprising body – does that make it the Kelly Brook of ties? Perhaps I overstate the case, but it’s safe to say that when Italians think of the British look they aspired to and improved on, they were thinking of and looking for a tie like this, an ur-tie, a srs sober tie for srs sober style. Srsly. 3.25” at widest by 56” long. Made in England. [st] $25 [/st] $23 shipped in US, [st] $31[/st] $29 shipped internationally.

Lush Holliday & Brown giant paisley design – this is the sort of thing that Richard James might have done except this doesn’t appear to be as self-conscious about it. Intricately detailed giant paisley print including abstract flowers in yellow, tan, and blue outlined in green, on a ground of thick, luscious red silk twill. Incredibly crisp colors on incredibly soft silk. This is what CBD would do if it could laugh at itself. Self keeper. Tipped in navy silk twill. Hand made in England for a Savile Row company called Christie’s. 3.75” at widest by 56.5” long. [st] $30[/st] $28 shipped in the US, [st] $36[/st] $34 shipped internationally.

Exemplary CBD Holliday & Brown tie – small paisleys in muted greens and blues printed on a brick red silk twill ground. The yellow accents create visual interest without loudness. If some evil sorcerer turned Manton into a tie and Petronius was busy, this is what he would look like. Navy blue silk tipping. Hand made in England for infamous New York haberdashers H. Herzfeld. A measured (sorry for the pun) 3.5” at widest by 58” long. $30 shipped in US, $36 shipped internationally.

Olive silk twill print Holliday & Brown tie with abstract motifs in brick red and light tan. Looks like something that could have inspired “Special re-editions” like the one below. From the label I’m guessing it comes from the 1960s-1970s period that some of the re-editions sampled. Hand made in England, and to those who are blind partisans of handwork I point out that I just noticed that the hand slip stitch was starting to open up on the back end of the tie (see picture). It’s easy enough to repair and will not show when worn, but I thus offer this for a discount. 4 1/8” wide by 53” long. $15 shipped in US, $22 shipped internationally.

Sometimes daring experiments don’t pay off: Holliday & Brown special re-edition silk print tie featuring a reissued pattern from their copious archives. Hand made in Italy, violent tropical greens and magentas. Self-tipped and self keeper. Definitely a tie that draws attention. Fell out of rotation pretty quick, but maybe it’s your bag. 3 3/8” by 58”. $18 shipped in US, $24 shipped internationally.

New with tag Holliday & Brown heavy woven silk tie made for Hilditch & Key of Jermyn Street. H&B used to make all the ties for H&K; at some point they moved to making only those in the “Hand Made Fine Silk Collection.” This is one of the last, a wonderfully soft silk weave of light blue and navy blue ovals on a silver-white ribbed silk ground. Self keeper tacked on the sides and folded and stitched into the seam. Extremely well made, extremely sober, perfect wintry colors for the weather ahead, stuffs a stocking well… 3.5” wide by 58”. [st] $40 [/st] $34 shipped in US, [st] $46[/st] $40 shipped internationally.

Cartier 18K gold Trinity wraparound or "stirrup" cufflinks in rose, white and yellow gold. Absolutely stunning. Hallmarked and signed. According to antique sellers online selling the same model, these are a rare design that hasn't been produced in decades. I don't know about that because these look basically new. I do know that these are a beautiful example of the wraparound design, which Cartier is credited with inventing, and that the Trinity motif of interlocking rings was a favorite of royal nincompoop and proto-iGent the Dook of Windsor on jewelry purchased for Wallis Simpson. These links open in the center, as shown in the pictures. They are generously sized and measure approximately one full inch across at widest point. I note that I may list these concurrently on ebay and may take them down if they do sell on that venue. I'm seeing them selling on estate jewelry sites for $3900- $4100. I'd imagine Cartier wants considerably more for them new. I'd like to sell them for $2500 firm, shipped anywhere in the world. Please note my customs/duties language at the bottom of this post if you are considering purchasing from abroad.

SOLD Knize tie – rare vintage awesomeness: what at first appears to be a fairly sophisticated pattern of orange and green paisleys interspersed with lozenges on a tan ground takes on added panache when you realize that each lozenge contains a sky-blue silhouette of a mounted warrior firing a bow or holding a spear. That’s how they rolled back then. Hand made in England for the Austrian men’s tailor and emporium of Viennese awesomeness. Self keeper tacked at the sides. 3 1/8” at widest by 54.5” long. $30 shipped in US, $36 shipped internationally.

Worn but in good condition; $200 new. 15.5” collar, 32” sleeve. Relatively slim fitting. $30 shipped in US, $36 shipped internationally.

Magnificent, Manton-sized Petronius CBD tie: printed daisy pattern in light yellow and blue on deep orange silk twill… and not just any twill, but a soft, substantial 50 ounce English silk twill. One of the very best of the Italian tiemakers in one of the very best silks, two legends meet. Hand made in Italy by the darling of the SF Inner Circle, the toast of Tyler Brûlé’s Monocle, Petronius, the arbiter elegantiarum whose Parthian eye unfailingly chose this lovely pattern.

SOLD Gorgeous Glenroyal handmade in Scotland bridle leather ziparound folio. This is in almost new condition. I don’t know why I kept buying these as I gave away two other folios to e-friends… Comparable to Swaine Adeney or WH Gidden, Glenroyal is a stealthier wealthier brand that recently has been trumpeted in Monocle, the organ of prescient trendsetter Tyler Brûlé, who is sort of like a ghey Canadian version of foo.gif, so you all should worship him. This is a best in class – dark dark chocolate brown, external zip pocket on one side with leather fob on zipper, brass Cheney lock for main zipped compartment. Keys are inside another leather fob. Inside is a single compartment with a penholder loop. Magnificent. I just gave this a feeding of SAB bridle hide food. Dimensions are 16” long by 12” wide, expandable to about 1” deep. Similar folios list for $700 – over $1,000. I will sell this for $200 shipped anywhere in the world, $190 shipped in US.

NOTE: Other pictures of this folio are throughout this post as I’ve used it as the base for a number of tie pics. They may give a better idea of the leather quality and detailing.

SOLD Remarkable Tincati tie with crisply woven perpendicular rose gold and espresso rectangles on metallic navy ground. Tipped in navy twill silk, this tie features a peculiar “rounded leg” or gamba rotonda construction, as shown in the photographs. I’ve never seen this on any tie before. An inspection of the construction reveals that the rounded legs of the tie are tipped in silk but not folded over and over like a seven-fold or three-fold tie. There is a light lining deeper inside the tie but otherwise this tie’s sensuous hand and body are due to its substantial silk and not any effects of folding – pretty nifty. Self keeper tacked at sides and stitched into center seam. 3 5/8” at widest by 60” long. $34 shipped in US, $40 shipped internationally.

SOLD It’s not pink and it’s not Attolini, but this is an authentic Connemara tie made in Ireland out of 100% wool rather than 100% FAIL like the awful eponymous poster. Once you get past the name, the heathered tweed patterns of aquamarine and russet in overlapping checks are charming. 3.75” wide by 54” long. $30 shipped in US, $36 shipped internationally.

Great thread as usual.

Never let it be said that you are not eclectic.

It would be hard to even pin a Fran Boy label on you. Maybe a Fran Boy of Eclecticism

Or in computer French:

"Wow, vous avez certainement une très grande quantité de belles choses très différentes à de nombreux endroits et les millésimes."
