Like the other bow ties in my debut Classic British Collection 2017, The Sudbury Bow Tie is named after the small market town in the English county of Suffolk, located on the River Stour near the Essex border 60 miles (97 km) north-east of London. It has been a hub of the British textile industry since the late Middle Ages. The fabrics used in the collection were milled at one of Britain's oldest weaving mills, founded by French Huguenots in the 17th century, and is renowned for their high quality and meticulous craftsmanship. My Sudbury Bow Tie, handcrafted in 100% silk, takes an unconventional approach to classic stripes. The diagonal crimson, indigo and white stripes are varied in width and white knots of silk appear throughout the fabric giving the bow tie a unique hand-sewn look and texture. While an ideal complement for a spring or summer suit—linen and seersucker come to mind—The Sudbury can easily swing out to accessorize a navy-blue blazer with jeans and yes, even with white shorts paired with a powder blue shirt! Handmade in England from 100% British-milled silk.
