The making of my ties are now out of my hands, but I’m confident that the guys working on them are the best in the business and are doing it with the same passion I put into my own work.
Almost everything about these ties is a bit of a pain to handle.
The card template gives the cutter the shape he needs to cut. The window inside this is the finished visible face of the tie.
This was positioned over the embroidery, referencing my Lacroix tie which I left them as a guide.
Here they are, all cut and ready to make-up.
This is machined in place before the three sections are joined together.
A strengthening stitch is added at the end of the hand sewing to stop it accidentally tearing. This is on the original tie, and has been replicated in a red thread to match.
I still have some work to do, which I shall do soon.
