At dinner last night an Italian friend asked me about our silk braces. Then, as I was explaining what items that we make other than bow ties he said "oh, you do ties, I didn't realise that".
We do make ties. We make them well. But it's not our core product. We do however make custom made ties for weddings regularly and with the wedding season only a month away I thought I might place a few teasers on the website of ties we can make. Below you will see our half and half ties and our regular ties on a range of silks from pink grenadines to woven motif jacquards and 50 Oz twills. One of each is on the website and you can book an appointment at the Studio if you would like to see our full range of silks. All our silks, except for our 50 Oz silk twills, come from the Como region of Italy. As a general rule they are designed for bow ties but I think it's fair to say they look great as ties too.
Oh, and because life is a series of reinventions we have decided to move away from giving our ties male names and instead we shall name them after Australian towns. When everybody else out there starts copying you it's time to come up with something brand new. If you have a particularly fun name for an Australian town and want us to name one of the next models after it, feel free to leave a comment below.
In the meantime, you can always shop these. www.lenoeudpapillon.com
