This tie is made from a pure Irish linen cloth by Dugdale in an amazing shade of light pink. Linen ties are pretty rare to find as the material is prone to wrinkle. However, this is part of the linen-experience and beauty of the cloth. It makes for a refrained casual summer tie with a lot of color depth.
Pair it with a white shirt, navy suit and snuff suede tassel loafers for a classic look or go bold(er) with a light blue linen shirt, a dark green sport coat, grey fresco pants and dark chocolate brown suede double monks.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen with a pale blue border or a navy based silk square.
Dugdale Bros & Co are located in the heart of Yorkshire and play a role in the fabric merchant business since 1896. They offer an impressive range of exquisite fabrics from worsted wool to tweed and cashmere.
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.
The classic tie is between 8 cm (3.15″) and 9 cm (3.5″) wide. We recommend 8 cm width for everyone wearing a size 46, 90, 23 (36 S/R/L) or smaller. If you’re wearing a 50, 98, 25 (40 S/R/L) or bigger you should choose 9 cm width. If you’re a 48, 94 or 24 (38 S/R/L) you are spoilt for choice. We do not recommend any ties slimmer as 8 cm as it limits the ties ability to create a nicely dimpled knot.
Usually, ties measure from 145 cm (57″) to 150 cm (59″) in length. However, many men need longer or shorter ties. The length of the tie is not only defined by its wearers’ height but also by circumference of his neck. 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 right at 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 four different lengths from 140 cm (55″) to 160 cm (63″).
