A must have in any well rounded formal wardrobe and a staple for business, the Regimental Stripe tie has withstood the test of time. This 8cm wide example from Breuer is crafted in a diagonally woven mogador which is different from silk repp. Mogador is blend of silk & cotton known for its bulletproof like hand.

Breuer was founded in Vienna in 1892 when Marcus Breuer sold "regattas", a sort of sailor's tie composed of a band of material crossed on the front, without the knot, and sometimes attached with a pin. After Marcus' passing, his son Julius created one of the first tie manufacturers and today, over 100 years later, their quality garners the respect of discerning businessmen worldwide. Striped and Regimental ties are a staple in any well appointed Ivy League style wardrobe and are the perfect accessory to lend any suit a serious edge.
