Despite a few notable exceptions, we actually like it when designers play with unconventional materials. In the right hands, a new material can completely reinvent a piece of clothing. A leather tie is just a novelty, but a leather bowtie? Now we may have something.
The real beauty of this is that whether you pair it with a vintage tux (maybe a size too small) or a plain old oxford shirt, it will be the extra touch that lifts you above the fray.
All Purpose, we salute you.
