Our collaboration with luxury British tie maker Drake’s serves one aim, to liberate the necktie from the realm of the turgidly mundane. This new collection of ties is refreshingly soft, textural and easy to wear, ideal for the warmer months.

The story

This necktie was created from the last remaining length of a vintage silk shantung fabric held in Drakes' astonishing archive, and features Drake’s iconic slip-stitched blade, designed to knot comfortably on the neck and recover flawlessly after each day of use. Drake’s staple softly-lined three-fold construction produces a tie that feels both lightweight and yet substantial, with a lovely natural roll.

In an elegant caramel colour, this shantung herringbone has a wonderfully soft, rich handle. With plenty of slubby texture, it pays the perfect complement to an understated summer look.

It is finished with handrolled tips and a keeper loop. It measures 147cms long by 8cms wide at its broadest point.
