We tell the story of a quality of silk that's new for us this season, one our shop staff have affectionately nicknamed the 'jumbo repp'.
Few ties exude a sense of timelessness and sheer dependability like the classic striped repp. A staple of our output for as long as we’ve been around, the repp tie is beloved by customers new and old, not to mention our staff. The style’s distinctive weave provides a welcome note of texture, while retaining a gentle sheen which creates an impression of refinement. Simply put, if you had to wear one tie for the rest of your life, you might just want to choose a repp.
While designing our SS20 season, we came across a repp silk unlike those we were accustomed to. Instead of the fine, almost invisible ribbing, this material was defined by bold, chunky ridges, with vibrant block stripes to match. It transpired that this silk had been the signature tie fabric of a now shuttered Parisian menswear institution, and in need of a home it had serendipitously fallen into our hands.
