The something special is our next collaboration: the Permanent Style club tie. Made by Drake’s at their new facilities on Haberdasher Street (I know, right?), the tie is a navy twill with the Permanent Style paisley woven into the front blade. It is not only a sign of fealty to the site, but a beautiful tie and one of the most versatile a man could own.

Only 100 will be available, all individually numbered. They will go on sale on the site on Thursday, and will also be available at the Drake’s store on Clifford Street and Trunk Clothiers in Marylebone. I will go into more of the background of the design and the final product in a Thursday post.

The first 10, that is numbers 1 to 10, will be available at the grand opening of the Drake’s factory and shop at Haberdasher Street on Thursday night. First come, first served.

See you there.

What will the construction be?


More to the point the – ahem – what is the price per unit and may one customer buy more than one tie.

Without meaning to lay on too much scrutiny onto what I am sure will be a lovely project I am curious about the cost etc. £125 is a rather steep price, I was wondering what markup will occur to benefit you (no problem with that just like to know the percentage) and how much more if anything it costs to embroider the tie, and who does this? Do Drakes have an embroiderer on site or is it outsourced? What type of silk is it?


Which website will they be available through?


Thanks Simon – can you post a direct link to purchase? Assuming they won’t be live on the site until the opening tomorrow?


Oh dear, I am clearly part of the “lowest common denominator” of tie wearers, as I quite happily use a “keeper”. Would I be allowed to buy one of your ties?!

Simon, I normally purchase longer length ties from Drakes. I presume this is a standard length run?

Simon, can’t find the tie on Drakes’ website. Or is the sale not yet on?
