Wallpaper* Magazine's interiors editor-at-large tells us what he likes about his newest made-to-order tie.
I was drawn to the texture of the fabric - at first sight it looks rough, but is in fact soft to the touch. The speckled nature of the yarn reminds me of the granite landscape on the Outer Hebrides.
Being a nice dense fabric, I chose a light lining to allow for a bit of movement. The proportion of the medium width suites my style. I love the hand rolled tip, it gives the tie a soft edge. When you turn it over, you can see it is unique and handmade.
How I Wear It
It’s a very versatile design, I wear it with my favourite dark blue jeans and light cotton shirt. The light flecks of the tie lift a dark suit beautifully.
