T&A dressed Robert Redford for his turn as the Jazz Age dreamer Jay Gatsby in the 1974 film, The Great Gatsby; his original outfit consisted on a now-iconic pale blue floral and spot tie, which we released as part of our Legends collection in 2016. Inspired by the character, in 2017 we decided to extended the production of the vivid print with a new range of exciting colours. This evergreen version is flecked with complementary tones of cornflower blue, butter yellow and orange to create an accessory that works in all seasons.
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.
