For years, a heated debate has regularly animated public opinion, newspaper columns and social networks: the state of health of the tie. Dead and buried for some, very much alive for others, the vital prognosis of this legendary accessory turns out to be more or less serious depending on the feathers and the periods. In agony or not, doomed or not by the presumed decline of the costume, we leave it to the critics to comment. On our side, there is no debate!

More than an accessory , the tie represents for Hast a certain idea of ​​allure , which is why we wanted to reserve a place for it at the heart of our anniversary capsule collection . A strong and assertive choice, embodied by this model that is both daring and refined , which will spice up your casual looks and loosen up your formal outfits.

The tie is dead? Long live the tie .

A marvel of craftsmanship

Including a tie among the ten iconic ones revisited to mark our tenth anniversary was a bold decision, which we wanted to underline by taking particular care. From the pattern to the final needle stroke, each step is carried out by hand in Lombardy , near Como, in the purest Italian tradition . With its five folds, this 100% pure silk tie is a little marvel of craftsmanship which will allow you to bring panache and luster to your compositions.

As you can see, we have favored a historic “club” pattern with colors that are as complementary as they are original. A timeless design that you can effortlessly combine with other pieces from the capsule collection as well as those that populate your wardrobe. Navy, white and light blue, its stripes stand out against a green background to which the silk brings a truly unique luminosity and shine .

If colors once had a meaning, displaying membership in a particular regiment, club, association or school, we have selected them here for their aesthetic power alone.

Speaking of stripes , can you tell if they go from left to right or right to left? If so, you surely know that it is from the shoulders of the wearer that we determine this subtlety. In this case, the bands start from the left shoulder and “descend” towards the right flank; which, by the way, is typical of English - and by extension European - ties . Across the Atlantic, our North American friends tend to wear stripes from right to left since the importation of the club tie by Brooks Brothers in the 1920s.

Material, pattern, colors , style : you see that this accessory is still capable of the best. At Hast, we know that we don't need to convince you of that and this little wonder is here to prove it.

The height of refinement

“Are you going to a wedding?”

Anyone who has never heard this phrase should raise their finger. What does it matter! Between the tie and the joke, the cheesiest one is not what the joker thinks.

For an occasion or for pleasure, wearing this accessory at the height of refinement is not laughable, quite the contrary. In the same way as scarves, bandanas and other neckwear which have recently made a real comeback, the tie allows you to structure the silhouette and open up an extremely vast horizon of stylistic possibilities .

With a button-down shirt and an Ivy League-style blazer , with a dress shirt and a suit jacket for more formality, with an OCBD and a work jacket for an explosive combo, anything goes with this unfairly feared piece . The key is to wear it with confidence, which is half of elegance .

How to maintain the green silk tie?

Unless you get a nice ketchup stain right in the middle, you shouldn't need to wash this club tie very often. If necessary, it is best to do it by hand in cold, slightly soapy water.
