Who doesn’t simply adore 18th century British maritime history? Well, I know for sure that Frederick Marryat (10 July 1792 – 9 August 1848) certainly did. A royal Naval officer, novelist and chum of English writer Charles Dickens, Captain Marryat also developed a widely used system of maritime flag signaling known as Marryat’s Code, which has been thoughtfully reproduced as my Captain Marryat bow tie. Featuring a rich ensign red field with true navy blue and chartreuse insignias, the Captain Marryat is available in 5cm bat wing bow tie, 6cm thistle bow tie (pictured) and limited edition necktie. Handmade in England from 100% British-milled silk.
