How should a wardrobe comprised of just seven ties look like? This collection curated by sartorial blogger and classic style connoisseur Will Str?ngh (@thedonsclub) answers precisely that question and proposes one tie for each day of the week. We are proud to finally release this collaboration that lots of thought has gone into and that’s been under development for almost an entire year.
Friday – “If there was a single colour that’s as bold and contemporary as it is versatile and timeless it’s got to be burnt orange. I immediately fell in love with this fabric the moment Steffen put it to my attention. The lightweight wool is printed in Macclesfield, England, and captures many aspects of its provenance. The vibrant base colour as well as the traditional floral pattern are a trademark of Macclesfield prints whereas the material choice is a welcome twist. Then again, the composition meshes well with the burnt orange shade to create a quintessential tie for sunny days in fall worn with a plain navy suit or a pair of corduroy trousers and a glencheck tweed jacket on casual Friday.” -Will
Our ties are entirely hand made from the cutting of the fabric to the sewing of the bar tacks in a small workshop in Como, Italy. This family business is around since more than half a century and has already been working for a number of well-known brands.
Each tie is constructed as a 3-fold with hand-rolled hems and a pure wool interlining.
All ties are made available in three different sizes. The correct length is not only determined by a wearer’s height but also neck circumference and trouser rise. To determine your required length measure one of your existing ties from tip to tip. Tie the tie until its wide tip is the proper length and ends smack dab in the middle of your trouser waistband. Now measure the distance from the ties skinny tip to your trouser waistband and either add or subtract it from the total length of your tie. We offer three different lengths from 140 cm (55″) to 160 cm (63″). The widths vary respectively for balanced proportions throughout all ties and wearers.
