This tie is made from a wool, silk and linen blend in a bright yet elegant strawberry red with an ecru and blue quadruple windowpane overcheck. Its blend of materials creates a mottled appearance with some minor slubs here and there. The relatively small scale of the windowpane overcheck is ideal for a tie as it’ll leave you plenty of room to be combined with patterned shirts and sport coats with bigger rapports.
Pair it with a white shirt, navy hopsack sport coat, grey tropical wool pants and dark brown penny loafers for a classic look or go bold(er) with a white-pale-blue tape stripe shirt, brown herringbone linen sport coat, cream linen pants and dark brown tassel loafers.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen or light blue 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″).
