Olive green, printed tie with possibly the best motif in the world: the Shibumi flower. Works wonderfully with dark suits and white/pink striped shirts, for example with a navy suit, classic linen pocket square and ocher bamboo braces. Brown and beige suits work just as well and picking up the light blue in the pocket square is a nice touch.
In the quiet hills of the British countryside lies the traditional heart of English silk printing: Macclesfield. Once home to numerous manufactories that produced the inimitable screen-printed silk connoisseurs love so dearly, today there are only two left that produce what internationally became known as “British Neats”. But the quality that comes out of these traditional places is still unparalleled: nothing beats the depth and character of hand-printed silk. The time-consuming printing process requires a lot of experience to get right, as the color reacts after printing with oxygen and forms the final shade: a delicate process, requiring a delicate hand. The result is a lush, rich, almost 3D-like effect we just love.
