Thomas Mason is a hallowed name in the world of shirting (just ask J.Crew), but nobody’s thought of applying that well-combed cotton to neckwear. Until now, that is.

The bespoke shirtmakers at Ascot Chang just released their Spring/Summer offerings, and tucked in among the vintage styles was this three-inch tie, stitched together from an impeccable Thomas Mason plaid. Eat your heart out, madras.

It’s not bespoke like the more customizable offerings from other outfits, but as long as you’re under 6’3” and relatively proficient at knotting, you should be fine.

If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can spring for a shirt in a matching (but non-diagonal) plaid—but we’d file that one under “advanced studies.”
