Drake’s London For HODINKEE | Heritage Tie and Snowflake Pocket Square

Drake's London For HODINKEE | Heritage Tie and Snowflake Pocket Square

HODINKEE continues their relationship with Drake’s Of London as they’ve collaborated on another knit tie and added in a pocket square to the mix as well. The tie is again a silk knit (best on the market in our opinion), but this time, it comes in a beautiful red finish with gilt, hand-sewn dots. HODINKEE’s Heritage Tie could be the only red tie you’ll ever want to own. It’s inspired by the Tudor Black Bay, a gorgeous modern dive watch, and the HODINKEE team worked closely with the Drake’s to ensure the color match between the tie and the Black Bay’s bezel and gilt dial was spot on. Mission accomplished.

HODINKEE’s first foray into the pocket square market comes in the form of their Snowflake Square, which is inspired by another Tudor beauty, the Tudor Pelagos. The detail and craftsmanship is unparalleled as the thin silk square has hand-rolled edges and a great feel. The black and white colorway gives it a ton of versatility as well.

The HODINKEE Heritage Tie is available now for $155 and the Snowflake Square is as well for $72, both through the HODINKEE Shop. Until they undoubtedly sell out of course.

Introducing | Drake’s For HODINKEE Limited Edition Tie Collection

Introducing | Drake's For HODINKEE Limited Edition Tie Collection

On their way to watch-world domination, seems the folks at HODINKEE have scheduled a few stops. They’ve already gone through an amazing site redesign and even launched an in-house line of hand-made Italian straps, pouches, and travel rolls. Now, they’ve teamed up with London’s Drake’s to create a limited edition tie collection inspired by two of HODINKEE founder Ben Clymer’s favorite watches. Drake’s of London is the pinnacle of men’s neckwear and accessories for as long as even my father can remember. Today is truly a momentous day, friends. These knit ties are woven with the highest quality silk yarn in the world, and the dots are hand-sewn with silk thread. No two ties are the same.

Alexander Olch x Maison Kitsuné Neckwear at NoMad Hotel

Alexander Olch x Maison Kitsuné Neckwear at NoMad Hotel NYC

To celebrate the opening of the Maison Kitsuné shop at The NoMad Hotel, Alexander Olch and Kitsuné have teamed up for a limited line of silk ties. Alexander and Masaya Kuroki, one of Kitsuné’s designers, formed a friendship while presenting their respective collections in Paris at the same showroom. Both designers are involved in fashion and art (Alexander is also a filmmaker, while Masaya is involved in the music industry) and enjoy working in diverse mediums. Alexander and Masaya share a mutual respect for timeless design, and the tie collection explores the idea of the classic New York man.

The collection consists of four neckties ($150 each) and two bow-ties ($110 each) in 100% English silk woven at a seven generations-old mill. Numbers are fairly limited and are offered exclusively at the Maison Kitsuné shop at the NoMad Hotel in New York.

Drake’s Shantung Silk Polka Dot Tie

Drake's London Shantung Silk Polka Dot Tie

We’ve seen our fair amount of navy ties with white polka dots but this variation from Drake’s London gives some added texture in the form of its Shantung silk construction. “Originating from China, this variety of the luxurious fabric has a raw, bobbled feel adding texture and flair to your dressed-up looks.” The polka dot necktie has this timeless elegance that not many pieces embody and with the longstanding history of Drake’s behind it, there’s not really much else we can ask for.

Alexander Olch teamed up with TheCorner.com for this exclusive video highlighting the New York designer’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. With direction from Matt Lenski and narration by The Olch himself, the video features a tutorial on how to tie the four-in-hand knot. French model Aurelie Claudel stars in the video and looks stunning. Needless to say, you’ll have to watch this multiple times to get the knot perfect.

Moore & Giles x Pierrepont Hicks Necktie Travel Case

Moore & Giles x Pierrepont Hicks Necktie Travel Case

This find actually made my morning as it’s one accessory I’d actually utilize. I travel often and one thing I always hate doing is having to toss all my ties in to my duffle without really being able to organize and protect them as I’d like. This necktie travel case from Moore & Giles and Pierrepont Hicks comes in Titan Toffee leather which comes from Moore & Giles while Pierrepont Hicks delivers the UK silk. (via Selectism)

Fine and Dandy Fall/Winter 2011 Lookbook

We showcased a preview of Fine and Dandy Shop’s Fall 2011 offerings a short while back, but we’re glad to see the boys are giving us some inspirational styling via this lookbook. As stated before, their neckwear is really some of our favorite stuff on the market and to see them progress as swiftly as they have is not surprising. Ken Pao was behind the lens for this one and more shots from the lookbook are below.
