The choice of whether to choose a tie with either a handrolled or self-tipped finish does generally come down to personal preference, however, handrolling is considered the most luxurious way to finish a tie. The art of hand rolling is a unique craft and truly makes each piece individual and unique. We feel that the precision and care taken by our skilled artisans gives each tie its own unique character, finish and feel. As you can see in the above image, the back of the blade of the tie is expertly and tightly rolled in a very similar way to our pocket squares. Handrolled ties are generally found on better quality neckwear due to the higher cost of production.
We source only the finest fabrics for our ties from mills around the world, often focusing on English production where possible. Some of the mills have been going for hundreds of years and we take expert care in selecting not only the finest quality but the most suited to tie manufacture. When it comes to our silk and wool printed ties we primarily source them from mills in Macclesfield. Once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk, the area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Each tie is hand cut, tipped and sewn together. Once the tie pieces have been joined together the tie is then pressed ready to be slipped. A woolen lining is placed into the tie and the hand slipper then pins along the tie folding the fabric onto the lining and creating an even seam along the length of the tie. Starting at the narrow end, a stretch loop is added while slipping along the tie. The stretch loop is one continuous piece of thread used to slip the tie without joins. This allows the fabric movement when worn and the stretch loop ensures more flexibility. This is unique to a handmade tie.
The ‘bar tack’ or ‘bullion’ stitch is added at each end of the tie while it is being slipped. This is also a special stitch that shows that the tie has been hand sewn. The self-loop and the label are added before the tie is checked and packed ready for delivery.
