Description

A 7-Fold tie is how a tie was made before the cost-cutting techniques of today. Our handmade 7-Fold tie recaptures old-school artistry of yesteryear, with a modern-day approach and sophisticated, unique design. With over 2 years invested to curate the construction and design at our New York City shop, each Sebastien Grey tie is handcut and handsewn from 100% 16 momme twill silk fabric. We have cut no corners to create a tie that is neither digitized nor woven, but rather traditionally silk-screen printed. The point is, our ties are actually folded 7 times from high-quality fabrics, giving each tie a thickness and class that does not exist in ties today ~ Houndstooth originated in Scotland in the 1800s, originally worn as an outer garment of woven wool cloth by shepherds. The pattern is a duo-tone pattern that is characterized by its abstract four-pointed shapes, most often in black and white. When it was first created, the pattern was referred to as Shepherd’s Check or Dogstooth. The smaller version of this print is referred to as puppy’s tooth. During the 1930s, the houndstooth pattern was adopted by the upper class as a symbol of wealth. Forever a classic, our iteration is realized as a piece of jewelry that combines our modern bespoke style, and pays homage to it’s originators.
