This navy-brown-white striped tie is made from a Holland & Sherry fabric in an undoubtedly unusual material composition. The cloth for this tie is made from 98% superbly fine 160s wool, 1% pure cashmere as well as 1% silver mink. It results in an incredibly soft yet densely woven fabric that will create a beautiful knot every time you put it on. This is without a doubt the most sumptuous fabric we have used for tie making to date. We are glad to be able to offer it to you at our regular price due to having acquired the fabric counter-cyclical. Keep in mind, the next winter is right around the corner.
Pair it with a light blue shirt, navy sport coat, grey flannels and chestnut austerity brogues for a classic look or go bold(er) with a light blue OCBD, a brown donegal tweed suit and tan Balmoral boots.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen with a light blue border or olive green based silk square.
Holland & Sherry was founded in 1836 specialized in woolen and silk cloth. By 1982 the business moved to Savile Row. Today, Holland & Sherry still supplies prestigious tailors around the world with some of the finest cloths available, including worsted vicuna and fabrics with pure gold threads.
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″).
