The design of knitted ties is limited to variations on spots and stripes, due to the very nature of knitted cloth. While trying to play with these restrictions our design focus has leant towards an imaginative and diverse colour palette. Inspired by the stunning array of colours found in nature we produce collections that go far beyond the reserved colour palette traditionally associated with menswear. At Augustus Hare we insist that colour can be exciting and elegant.
The art of making knitted ties no longer exists in England. Augustus Hare knitted ties are hand made in Northern Italy by a former monk and his family. This factory is widely considered to produce the world’s finest knitted ties. Our chosen yarns are knitted in a cylindrical style and then hand embroidered if a pattern or spot is to be added. The cloth is then pressed flat and the ends sewn together, resulting in a finished necktie. For added durability each of our knitted ties has a green silk grosgrain neckband.
At Augustus Hare we do not compromise with our materials. Our knitted ties come in either the finest, most crunchy silk or the softest cashmere. The cashmere we use is of exceptional quality. Not only is it wonderfully soft but maintains its lustre as it ages and does not pill, even with frequent use. Our knitted ties embody our dedicated pursuit of the finest materials available anywhere.
