    Few more casual fits from this week. We'll be looking to bring our denim ties back later this winter....i swear they may be the perfect casual tie. Definitely not #menswear, but the design and color is so simple it can certainly be pulled off as it.

    Here's the Camo, which we have available again for a few more units of pre-orders. We can do this is our modern 3" pattern...slim, not skinny, and can work with a slimmer 3" lapel.

    Any tie can be pre-ordered in that 3" pattern, which is modeled from a vintage JCrew tie I had in my collection for years.

    Was the Hudson collection from back in the day 3"? I liked those. I think I may even have one in denim...

    Those were 2.5". We did do a real nice chambray in that run, but when it came down to it we weren't happy with the production and work that the manufacturer was doing on them.

    The 3" preorders will be done with the same entirely handcrafted, by one person, "manufacturing" process. It takes about 6 hours to complete one tie this way, but we feel other tie makers don't even come close, even if they are "hand made". By keeping the tie with one person, it allows complete consistency as it doesn't get passed from person to person in a process....the tie itself is one complete process handled by the same artisan. This is standard for us, with both the 3.25" "conservative" pattern as well as the 3" pattern.

    Ok. Good to know. I must have the chambray. 2.5" is definetly skinny, so the new 3" versions will be a really nice option.

    Excited to announce we'll be guests of @Epaulet at the SF Trunk Show on Saturday November 8, and we'll be taking pre-orders on a new collab piece with the boys at EP. I think you'll be very happy to see what we'll have on offer!

    Yes sir!



    Right now we're looking at $599.99 based on max amount on the fabric. There's a chance it could be a bit more if we can't get enough out of the piece we secured, but I'm pretty confident we can. We have a list for this tie when it's made, feel free to drop me a pm if you want on.

    A cash-mink tie? That would be a heavyweight beast!
