The Ploughman’s Tie
General Knot & Co. has been kicking around the blogodome quite a bit in the past few months—boasting the usual chambray and gingham varieties—but we’ve finally found one that couldn’t be made by anyone else.
If it looks like Midwestern tableware, there’s a reason. It’s an Eisenhower-era, archival folk-art print—along the lines of your Gitman Vintage shirts or a Levi’s throwback—only now it’s found its way onto your tie rack.
And while it’s not exactly what a Quaker potato farmer would have worn to a Sunday gathering in 1905, we have to think it’s pretty close.
