Gentleman Arthur Ties
Woodblock printing techniques are as old as time and have produced beautiful art and fashion. Up until now we are fairly sure they have not been used, widely at least, as a method to create unique and fashion forward ties. At Gentleman Arthur they produce short runs of handcrafted and hand printed ties that are created using artisnal methods, the result being some great looking ties, as shown above with The Hobo. Our personal favourite, this frayed skinny tie is made of 100% cotton monks cloth with the pattern being inspired by Jack Kerouac's "On The Road." We'll let Arthur sum it up best "Each tie a work of art. Made with care, because the bulky silk tie is dead, and the well-dressed man is now the rebel".
