General Knot & Co. two tone seersucker tie

By Laura on April 11th, 2011

Nothing says summer like seersucker, which is why we love this two-tone necktie from the American company General Knot & Co. The tie features the classic seersucker stripe on the outside and an indigo-colored vintage 1950′s folk art print on the inside which depicts birds, dogs, stags, flora and fauna. There is something that just screams Hampton’s. Only 20 of these handmade ties have been produced in a limited-edition one-time-run. It is available for $118 USD (approx £72) through General Knot & Co.

Kerchiefs: another alternative to bow ties

By Colin Chapman on December 19th, 2008

The other day I posted an alternative to the bow tie .. and here’s another. The kerchief worn as necktie adds a jaunty, hipster edge to your shirt collar. There are several ways to knot, consider your personal style and what you’re wearing it with. Ideally find something vintage. Silk always looks dashing or use that spotted pocket square you’ve never had a use for.

A recent Facehunter post shows this accessory idea off to stunning effect though it’s something that The Sartorialist has also featured before, and can even be spotted in current Uniqlo window styling.

So take a break from Christmas shopping and dig out that gem. But be advised to go for subtlety in colour and proportion: unless you really ARE channeling Quentin Crisp.
