The workshop where our ties are made is one of the oldest in the world, and is situated in the North of Italy. It is small and difficult to find form the outside, but on the inside artisans work vigorously on some of the best ties in the world. They produce for some of the largest brands in the Italy, France and England, and for Jeeves.
Jeeves ties are made with the classic 3-fold construction, and are lined with a pure wool/cotton lining. We believe that the classic construction still provides the best result, and find that the pattern and texture of the fabric is what makes a tie stand out, more than an overly complicated construction. Every tie is hand closed with what is called a slip-stitch, a stitch that leaves some extra thread at both sides, to give it more flexibility. This ensures that the tie always hangs straight, and that it returns to its original form when untied.
Jeeves offers a selection of ties focused around texture. We have ties made from Grenadine silk (an open weave with a beautiful texture), from pure Shetland wool, Irish Poplin, Woven silk and of course the classic printed silk.
All ties are priced at 95 EUR (incl. 21% VAT). They are delivere in an elegant packaging made form recycled greyboard or fibreboard. It is a very strong packaging, even ideal to travel with. All items are shipped free within the EU.
For this week only, we over a promotion code that gives a 15% discount on every tie purchased. The promotion runs until Wednesday October 26th at midnight.
For this one we sourced a true burnishable leather in a nice burgundy shade, called 'Vegano Calf' from the French tannery Annonay. It lends itself perfectly to proper burnishing, and will result in a much more natural looking burnished finish.
