Playing Rough


One of the main things we look for in a tie is texture—whether it’s a knit or a rough-hewn Pendleton flannel. So naturally, this wool mélange item from ts (s) caught our eye…

The fabric’s a mashup of wool, acrylic, nylon and cotton, but the end result is pretty close to felted wool—with enough dappling to keep it from blending in with your flannel suit. It also hits the 3-inch sweet spot for tie-width, making it a pretty much perfect example of the modern fabric-scrap school of neckwear. Find an artfully disheveled cotton suit and you should be just about set for life.
