Ties have gotten a lot breezier in the last few summers, to the point that our favorite neckties are the ones made to be worn over oxford shirts, chambray and off-color button downs.

Case in point: this Gitman Vintage tie, newly arrived at Context.

It has less in common with a banker’s tie and more in common with picnic blankets or bandanas—which, given the season and our plans for the summer, is about right.
