The Hill-Side Neckwear for Autumn/Winter 2011 Looks

by Accidental Bear

This is a new category for me, neckwear. The term makes me think of being a child with a cold, and having Vicks Vapor Rub spread all over my chest and my mother tying a bandana (neckwear) around my neck and tucking me away. Anyone else?


The Hill-Side neckwear brand for their Autumn/Winter 2011 run: neckties, scarves and  feature a handful of familiar faces. “We handed off the new collection of ties, scarves, and handkerchiefs to Mikael so he could carry it with him as he traveled around the country photographing friends and new people who crossed his path…” said The Hill-Side.

Good stuff

BEARDED: Mark Jan Krayenhoff van de Leur You might say that Mark Jan Krayenhoff van de Leur pioneered a beard movement that is stronger than ever before.

Style Education: Bow Ties

by Accidental Bear

I all of the sudden want a bow tie!

Miguel from Sui GENERIS says:    

There are three main categories of bow ties: The pre-tied, the clip-on and the self-tie.

Pre-tied: Just as it sounds, this type of bow tie is easily accessible to all desiring to expand their fashion repertoire with just the fastening of a clip.

Clip-on: style of bow tie in which the bow is already made and is tied around the collar with a metal clip. Like the pre-tied, this style allows even the most inexperienced to dawn the bow tie.

Self-tie: Here is where the true finesse comes in. Consisting of a single strip of cloth that one must use proper technique to tie. The following two main styles provide the wearer with some options when selecting their bow tie.

  • Batwing- bow tie with cricket-bat shaped “blades.” The wing ends are either straight-end or pointed-end.

  • Hourglass/Butterfly: bow tie with thistle-shaped blades that create flared, slightly curved wings which like the batwing, are either straight or pointed.

Come visit Sui GENERIS to peruse our selection and find the style that suits what you’re looking for.
