Lately, we have come to realise, that New Zealand men have significantly upped their attire. It’s great, it really is, we’re looking good, dare we say suave, making sure that our suits are tailored, our shirts slim-fit, even throwing in a pocket square every now and then for good measure. Forging ahead as the discerning gents we were born to be, there is, however, one item that is still trailing as a bit of an afterthought — the tie.
Vitally important to finish off the overall look, it seems foolish that, for the large part, it is given such little consideration. Feeling it is time to right this sartorial wrong, like many others, we find ourselves turning to Drake’s. A renowned tailor from London’s East End, the Maker and Haberdasher crafts all its signature ties by hand using British silks. Traditional in its craft but experimental in design, stripes, spots, tartans and texture are all covered off, with neckwear ranging from the classic navy to a red knitted, square-ended style. All available locally at Crane Brothers, why not stop by and give them a try? Start giving your knotted neckwear the attention it deserves.
