Our fine tweed bow tie on the dapper @galaadmoutoz of Galaad Moutoz Swing Orchestra.

A few pieces in our collection are currently appearing as part of the Galaad’s barnstorming jazz spectacle Harlem Swing Show as it tours France.

Costume changes aside, the show includes spell-binding music, song & dance that will take you back, or sideways (depending on your view of time travel) to the profound mystic & rhythm of the 1930s & ‘40s in a manner rendered especially pleasurable under the guidance of this accomplished band of jazz musicians.

It was also an age where different types of neckwear—neck ties, neckerchieves & bow ties—adorned the necks & collars of many classy & rakish types.

What caused the necktie to triumph when it is so plainly unsuitable to most physical activity & standards of convenience?

Wait, wait… the answer is clear: it is after all bigger in (visible) surface area. Let’s call it an instrument of a brasher statement? The bow tie remains then as its refined & (in that sense at least) more subtle sidekick.

Find it now on our eboutique.
