A Silk Knit Rolex

  • Najib Benouar

Behold: the vintage Rolex of silk knit ties.

The horology-obsessed gents over at Hodinkee have just teamed up with the perennially dapper tie makers Drake’s London to come up with two limited-edition ties based on some legendary Rolexes. Our favorite of the two is this matte gray tie with creamy polka dots that mimic the way the dial and hands of a 1972 Reference 5512 Rolex Submariner have faded. They’re available for preorder now, but you can get first crack at them this weekend in NYC during the Pop Up Flea—the mythical bazaar of menswear co-helmed by our very own editorial director...

Stay tuned for more on what to expect from the guaranteed-to-be-epic PUF V, tomorrow...
