Then, there’s the abundance of skinny supplied by trend-led, hipster stores such as Topman and the like. These are – more often than not – some cheap, brash shade of red or black or perhaps, if you’re terribly lucky, a tacky silver, and may be smothered with some typically-‘Topman’ pattern e.g. stars or in a graphic check. These are ubiquitous.
Now, I don’t constantly detest the aforementioned but there are times when I wish we were offered more – and no, vintage tartan abominations don’t count. So I was pleasantly surprised by this lot which I feel combine the requisite smartness of shape – being sufficiently broad but not overly so – and inventive, attractive colouring/patterns. They’re by Sovereign Beck Ties, based in NY an enterprise led by Ryan and Will.
