This handmade designer tie from Drake’s of London presents a dapper, high fashion look and pairs well with both solid color and patterned suits. Its unique zigzag black and white pattern adds a dash of liveliness without ever appearing loud or uncouth, making this one of those ties that can easily be your go-to necktie for a wide variety of occasions. It’s formal enough to wear to most offices and meetings, yet it retains a sense of levity and a sure-handed, individualistic charm.

Among the traditional elements of fine menswear, ties face the unique challenge of saying a lot with a little. They don’t have much real estate to work with and are often tasked with being the sole provider of color or contrast against a somber backdrop such as a black three piece suit or navy blazer and solid-color shirt. Luckily, this designer tie from Drake’s is eloquent enough to make a big statement with a small patch of silk.

In the early days of the men’s suit as we know it now – which is really a development of what was once a more casual “everyday” style – the necktie existed alongside the pocket square or handkerchief, and the role of contrasting accent piece usually fell to the pocket square. Now the necktie most often plays the part. And this 100% silk tie from Drake’s is finely suited to livening up any business suit or semi-formal dress style.

The Drake’s brand is known for handcrafted accessories made in London’s East End. One of the most respected names in the necktie world since 1977, their signature patterns and styles are matched with outstanding materials and workmanship quality. The sort of men’s accessory that lasts, this Drake’s silk tie is both unique and versatile, and makes a great gift for the sartorially-inclined.
