Matt Gorton of CXXVI presents Stalward Ltd., a collection of fantastic neckties in Spring/Summer-appropriate materials and patterns. They describe “a New York based brand of neckwear providing an effortless addition of style for nearly any purpose. Each piece is carefully handmade in the great city of Chicago. The family-owned and operated factory has been specifically chosen for its attention to quality for the past fifty years.” Some top fabrics, often deadstock, are used to create each tie. The Heavy Linen in Sage and Summer Check are particularly solid options in the Spring/Summer 2012 range and shouts for some excellent branding and packaging. Available now, over here.
