Hoping to have a few more of these by next weekend...I love these ties, and they were fashioned in the mold an old Jcrew tie I had in college, so not as thick as our standard offerings, perfect for casual wear:
Selvedge Raw Denim Tie:
I know this generally doesn't speak to most of our customers, but its a project close to my own heart...I love workwear, I love the qualities of denim, and I love the "fashion" element of the white selvedge. This is made from medium weight (~10 oz) Japanese denim, is unlined, three fold and 3" at its widest point. Would make a bad ass accessory to a standard slim khaki and blue OCBD giving you the chance to sport selvedge without getting your jeans out.
Second is a Railroad Stripe Selvedge tie...this one we didn't use the actual self edge, as I feel it would contradict the RR stripe a bit, and our sample here was made inside out...our production models will be made with the dark side out. Its also raw denim, but this one is a touch lighter than the 10oz and is also unlined and three fold, 3" at its widest point.
Here it is as a denim three piece, jean shirt by Epaulet, Jeans by Somet (from BlueinGreene)
So often going to street wear means you have to sacrifice the "hand made" element to your garment, I wanted to bring something that was still entirely handcrafted to the market with a bit of an edge. I think the denim tie will look great after a few years and wear, fade and soften up like your favorite pair of jeans. We did a one wash denim tie before and it even passed a wash test...and was back in shape after a quick hot iron press...so you know its tough as nails and still an old school handcrafted item.
