Our formal tie for summer, cut from Irish linen that has more body and substance than Italian linen. This tie came about as we were trying to figure out what a contemporary James Bond would wear in summer.
The ties are handmade in England by a small family firm and are self tipped. Tipping is the piece of fabric that closes the underside envelope of the tie. U D E S H I use the more costly outer fabric than substituting a cheaper silk or polyester for this purpose that most other makers would use. The tie loop is made of the same fabric as used for the body of the tie, and is sewn in to the tie and secured on all four corners. The ties are cut on the true bias and so won't twist when worn. The front blade is cut longer so the seam will not be visible when the tie is worn.
Made from pure linen.
