Drake's Bespoke Tie Service Launches Online

In the spirit of Savile Row bespoke tailoring, Drake's is proud to offer superbly handcrafted ties to your personal specification. Each of the tie lengths offered within our bespoke service has been crafted from individual master patterns graded perfectly to the appropriate length of the tie so that the knot area is neither too wide nor too narrow.
On how to establish your correct length, it's best to work from a personal tie that is nearest to the length you have in mind. A simple guide would be to measure the tie from the tip of the front blade to the tip of the tail. Then tie the tie using your knot of choice, have someone measure how much longer both the front and tail need to be in order to reach to just above the trouser waistband. Add these measurements to the length of the tie and deduct 2cms to allow for fabric stretch; as a rule of thumb, printed fabrics are inclined to stretch more than woven fabrics. This also applies to our grenadine quality.
For this bespoke service the turnaround time is 2 - 6 weeks. The cost is £155 per tie, and no minimum applies.
