The rake

The modern voice of classic elegance

Augustus Hare

Augustus Hare lends itself to the quintessential Englishness and jovial inclinations of the late Victorian raconteur and travel writer it was named after. Founded in 2014, the brand's offering ranges from pocket squares to neckties, either crafted with silk and hand screen printed in Macclesfield, Britain's historic silk centre, or knitted from silk and cashmere in Italy. The Augustus Hare range demonstrates an expert use of colour and pattern which embraces lustrous, elegant and stylish design, creating works of art that are both beautiful and subtly eccentric.
