The Dapper Gentleman: Modern Day Style in Timeless Neckwear
Across the country, fashion entrepreneurs are bringing a timeless style to their men’s neckwear products. Many of these forward-thinking designers are looking to the past – by sourcing heritage and vintage materials or finding inspiration in decades-old styles. Ties are a classic holiday gift, so select the perfect one from these quality shops.
Sourced from rare and vintage fabrics, General Knot & Co. creates limited edition neckwear and accessories. GK&Co. creates every product in the USA using the best craftspeople, and each product is made in a limited quantity, never to be replicated again. The fabrics are carefully curated and collected by designers, like a whimsical, festive dancing deer print from the 1940s. Many ties pair fabrics together, like a flannel wool with a selvedge denim.
Heritage and vintage Japanese textiles are transformed into neckwear by Boston-based brand Faburiq. The ties, bowties and accessories are made from beautiful fabrics, which are mostly Japanese silks such as dead stock Meisen, Shibori, Omeshi, Tsumugi silk or Kasuri cotton. Each piece is hand-finished in the USA with hand-rolled silk edges or hand-finished baby hems. The fabrics bring a pop of color and sophistication to any outfit. These quality materials are in limited supply, adding exclusivity to the finished products.
For bowties that echoes the past, High Cotton finds their inspiration in classic patterns and the cotton industry of the south. Favorite patterns of the south are represented in their products, like tattersalls, ginghams, and madras plaids. Hand-cut and hand-sewn in North Carolina, the neckwear is made of 100% cotton and machine washable, which is an alternative to silk neckwear. High Cotton even offers a “Home Try-On” which allows you to choose five bowties, which are shipped to you to try on. After five days, you repack and resend the box of bowties. A great idea for a groom and wedding parties!
The great tie is nothing without a great shirt. Tuckerman & Co. is creating dress shirts from premium materials, Italian-woven organic cotton, and with an emphasis on sustainable production and uncompromising craftsmanship. The white dress shirt, a staple of any man’s wardrobe, is impeccably produced by Tuckerman & Co. with single-needle stitching, corozo buttons with their signature green cross stitch.
