The Jackal’s Aleks Cvetkovic on a subject close to his heart.
I’m serious folks. The new Drake’s art deco prints are a joy to behold; three hand-rolled ties in bright, warm complementary colours, each with a soft concentric square pattern inspired by 1930s archive patterns.
They’re not for the faint-hearted, but that’s precisely why you should consider one. The danger with the humble tie is that even if you’re an enthusiastic tie wearer, they can easily become part of a conservative uniform. We all have our favourites that we return to time and again – the navy repp, the forest green shantung, the burgundy grenadine. So, every now and then it pays to mix things up, and to remind yourself why you enjoy wearing a tie in the first place: so you can express yourself.
