A.T. Collections from Alexandra Taylor offers an absolutely stunning array of men’s ties for Holiday ’12 that will not only please the discriminating gent, but will help eradicate malaria too, since a portion of the proceeds from each tie is earmarked for the Nothing But Nets Campaign ($10, which purchases a net that could save a life).
This exquisite Head of State Tie features hand-sewn detailing on vibrant silk broadcloth with a modern abstract mosquito check pattern. Created in celebration of the 2012 United Nations General Assembly, it’s ideal for the worldly sophisticate.
The Preston Silk Tie is a modern rendering of luxury, featuring a silk and linen blend, silk/wool print lining, and iridescent sheen. This can be worn at the MoMA, to a party, or on a business trip to London because The Preston is unique and flexible.
The Justin Silk Mesh Tie adds an extraordinarily stylish appeal and texture to any outfit, and is versatile enough to go from day to night, casual to semi-formal. Subtle and classic, The Justin is sheer music for the eyes.
The Dylan Silk Wool Print Tie is bold and beautiful, smart and vivacious. This vibrant silk and wool abstract mosquito print is perfect for men who feel every day is a special occasion – because they make it that way.
The Robert Silk Tie is a luxurious dark olive hue, complete with an abstract silk/wool mosquito print lining as a nod to the Nothing But Nets Campaign. Classic and magnificent, this is a tie you’ll always love and treasure.
