A quick look into what is coming for the LVJ haberdasher spring and summer 2015 line. Rich coloured light wools and Japanese cottons.View full article →
We are proud of our spring and summer ties for 2013. We wanted to create a spring and summer collection with lighter fabrics and more colours. We think we succeeded. Most our spring and summer offerings are made from cotton. To that end, we used a staple of summer fabric, seersucker cotton (see our post on seersucker fabric here) to make so perfect summer ties. We also used some linen to make a beautiful herringbone tie that you can purchase here. The only thicker ties we made were the cotton corduroy ties, made to balance the lighter blazers they could be paired with.

We are working to get the site officially launched December 1st.
There will be about 25 different products available at launch.
Here's a behind the scenes image of the prep work.
After several trial runs, we have developed a finished product silk dupioni tie. Interestingly dupioni is created when two different silk worms spin their cocoons too close together. The tangled silk creates the texture you will see in this fabric.
We love this tie because a black tie often defines a formal look. However, with this tie you get the formal look, but with the funkiness of a dramatic texture.
It's been a lot of work getting this website launched! Thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far.
We shot these pictures back in May (2012) and had a lot of fun doing them! Thank you to Isaac, Guy and Nic.
