This tie is made from a silk and linen blend in an outstandingly beautiful navy and light blue glencheck. The material mix creates a mottled appearance with some minor slubs here and there, which makes this the summer tie to go for when you want to dress down a suit or dress up an informal combination.
Pair it with a white shirt, light grey fresco suit and cognac penny loafers for a classic look or go bold(er) with a light pink shirt, an olive cotton suit and dark chocolate brown suede tassel loafers.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen or a silk square that picks up the blue like our Vincent van Gogh Irises pocket square. Chances are high, you won’t find a pocket square this tie doesn’t go with.
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. This 50% Italian silk 50% Irish linen blend is part of Dugdales fantastic Cascade collection.
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″).
