Having left the diplomatic service to pursue a more creative career, I didn’t plan or indeed expect to find myself producing luxury ties! It came about a couple of years ago when I was contacted by a government agency who asked me to take on the unique project of creating a bespoke tie for them. My brief was to create a tie that would be used both to represent the organisation and as an official gift. It needed to be symbolic of their heritage, and also fashionable and top quality – Savile Row standard, but without breaking the bank. Wanting to get it right, I contacted my now business partner, Oscar, to help me on what we thought would be a one-off project.

“There is a misconception that the gentleman’s tie is consigned to a past time, but the contrary is true. There will always be a time when a man will want to wear a tie; what has changed is not whether to wear a tie, but how his choice can reflect his identity whilst showing an appreciation and love for quality and craftsmanship.”
