There is only 1 tie in stock of the design I want will you have more?
There is usually only ever 1 or 2 of a particular design of tie shown in stock at any one time, this is to allow me to offer a choice of widths in as wide a range of designs as possible. All the ties are individually hand-stitched by me and any larger numbers are made to order so that I can ensure I am making exactly what is wanted. If you would like more please contact me about a custom order.
How long do custom orders take?
Custom orders normally take about three weeks to be ready to send out, this can be longer at very busy times (Easter to July)
Do you provide fabric samples?
Yes, I am happy to send fabric samples out to you to help with decision making and colour matching.
Just contact me with your address and let me know which fabrics you are interested in and I will put them in the post to you.

You can special order a tie, bow tie, cravat, pocket square or cuff-links in most of the fabrics you see on the website.
I've seen a Liberty fabric elsewhere that I would like an accessory made in, can you make that?
I am generally very happy to order in any Liberty tana lawn to make an item specially for you - just get in touch
