Our Ties

Lee Allison neckties are handmade from 100% silk. This silk is woven in Europe at some of the best silk mills in the world. We’ve used silk from a variety of countries, but find ourselves using English mills more often than not. The silk fabric, shipped to us on 28 inch rolls, is then cut and sewn by hand here in the U.S. and made into neckties and other accessories.

Our ties are on the longer side of normal at 57-58 inches. The width is approximately 3 3/4 inches. As with all truly superior neckties, ours are cut on a perfect bias (a 45 degree angle), slip-stitched by hand, and double bar-tacked. For the keeper (that loop on the back where you tuck in the tail), we use a long self-loop (made from the same fabric as the tie) tacked down not only on both sides, but also stitched into the center seam for added strength and durability.

What really distinguishes Lee Allison neckties are their designs—they’re true originals. We put our ideas on paper and then our mills weave our designs into silk fabric for us, and us alone. People ask us "Where do find your fabric?" Well, in general, we don't find it, we create it.

That said, not all of our fabric is designed by us, particularly when you're talking about more traditional designs such as stripes, dots, houndstooths and other geometrics. In these cases, we’ve learned to select designs from our mills, many from their archives, and then by coloring them, make them our own.
