I've been wearing Anthony Haines woollen ties almost as long as I've been wearing bespoke suits. You see I'm not much of a fan of the silk tie - though it does rather depend on the design - preferring instead ties that have more texture and less-sheen than silk.
Whilst studying textile design in London during the 1960's, Anthony Haines began producing narrow hand-woven ties which were a hit with the fashion houses of the day, such as Burberry and Aquascutum.
Shortly afterwards he opened his own mill which still produces his wonderful worsted and tweed ties to this day. All Anthony Haines ties are woven by-hand in Scotland, and come in an array of vivid colours and are available in both solid worsted and tweed finishes.
