As with many of our sartorial products, sold online and offline in our store, the collaboration is generally based on a personal friendship between Michael Jondral and the owner of the brand. The haberdasher Michael Jondral not only lays particular value in it, but it is also what makes it possible for him to take a look at the quality and nature of the products.
One of these brands is undoubtedly Drake's London. The story of Drake's goes back to 1977. That is when Michael Drake founded the company in London's East End, within walking distance to London's Spitalfields where the British silk trade has started its course. At that time, the company was specialized in the manufacturing of scarves & plaids, which led to a loyal fanbase of the brand.
Drakes ties do not only belong to the finest accessories that you can purchase online and offline, but they have the necessary nonchalance and simple excitement that makes them very individual accessories.
The special feature is the versatility of the pieces: whether Grenadine, Shantung silk or classic silk with patterns, the fine accessory can accompany nearly any outfit and look. A "Drake Tie" with vintage flair gives each outfit the right amount Sprezzatura. Especially these pieces are enjoying great popularity worldwide for the connoisseur, who appreciates it.
The corporate philosophy of Michael Drake can be found in it. He is in fact known to speak out against the all too "sleek" look. Rather, he is an advocate of "soft tailoring", which is based on pure handcrafting, which also Michael Hill appreciates. Only by handwork, it is possible for the clothes the accessories to become full of soul and life.
It is therefore not surprising that the Drake tie is not only worn in the everyday business world, but also by men who love to be accompanied by their favorite accessory in their spare time.
These casual ties made of wool, grenadine or Shantung have further advantages. They can be combined much better with a cardigan or sweater, because they do not slip. Incidentally, a sports shirt by Finamore is the perfect addition to a sporty tie. They are best combined with a soft cashmere sweater by Fedeli.
