Connoting SS16’s theme of travel through the ages, the Penny-Farthing tie takes a vintage vehicle and makes it modern. The retro bicycle’s iconic one-big-one-small set of wheels are positioned in perfect tessellation to create a simplified shapely motif, made up of circles and lines, rather than a true-to-life illustration. In a palette of bold contrasting green and purple, this is a contemporary choice with a quirky undertone.
Our silk ties are hand-sewn in Kent by a team of artisans with centuries of combined experience. Our printed designs are a more contemporary choice as they’re smoother in texture and allow for a greater colour palette; their lighter weight also makes them ideal for warmer weather. The signature paisley tipping is made with acetate to withstand any abrasion caused by belts or zips. The blade of each design features a unique hidden 'loop' made from strongest-ever bonded thread, which allows the tie to ruche and relax back into place after wearing.
