Knowing from experience how difficult it is to find a florist who will part with a single fresh carnation for the modest but highly profitable price of a dollar or two, we began a few years ago offering a near-perfect faux version that in the opinion of some of the best dressed men in America offers all that the fresh ones have save for the fragrance and short life span. Put a flower in your lapel.

Bow tie, porkpie hat, and a seasonally light colored double breasted suit. Such was the Cap d’Antibes dandy of 1936. Mind you, this was not a serious business ensemble but travel clothing worn en route to a resort on the French Riviera.Would you wear it today? When?

Necktie linings were introduced to reduce the cost of manufacture (unlined ties take significantly longer to produce than other styles and are priced accordingly) but an unlined tie is a particularly elegant thing. They are even more so when more affordable, and our completely hand made unlined Neapolitan neckties are now available for 40% off their original $195 price. That is lower than one of their debased machine cut and sewn “hand made” descendants, which is an excellent reason for you to try a bit of necktie history.
