“Thom Browne’s always putting a different spin on the dress shirt every season. He’s doing something that’s a real hybrid that I haven’t seen that much, which is a button-down club collar. He finds a new way to reinvent the American button-down every season. This one we love because it’s a two-color windowpane pattern so you’re going to want to wear this with your quieter fabric suits and tweeds and sportcoats or a solid color cardigan. The tie is silk but it’s beefier, it’s heavily constructed and it will tie really stiff, with a strong dimple. I haven’t seen the red power tie, or the red tie, since the ’80s. This is the anti-Republican power tie.”
If Thom Browne neckties ever get to be at least 3” wide, then I’ll be buying quite a few. I love his designs, but the super-skinny width just doesn’t work for me and my wardrobe at all.
Also, FYI, there’s a bunch of Thom Browne neckties on Yoox right now sitting pretty under the $100 mark.
