I'm going to a wedding next month which is taking place in a barn. I'd like to look formal but I'm thinking this might be the perfect opportunity to wear something quirky for once. Could you recommend a bow tie that would be a little more bold but not too extravagant? I'll be wearing a dark blue suit.
Weddings are indeed the perfect occasions to experiment with your accessories. Whilst you don't want to outshine the groom himself, you should aim to be a close second. Why not try one of Rory Hutton's linen bow ties with designs inspired by the Irish countryside, or go for a classic tweed in a vibrant colour such as LV Made In England's yellow or burgundy. Have a fantastic time, and don't forget to send us some photos to feature in our Gallery.
Hi Mr J.,
My partner is starting a new job in the City in a few weeks’ time. I’d like to spoil him for the occasion and get him a really nice pair of cufflinks. He owns a few pairs already but most of them are novelty cufflinks which may not be so appropriate in his new position. Could you recommend some that are a little more refined in style?
Absolutely! Smart cufflinks can be challenging to find but they do make a perfect gift. We work with emerging designers to bring you a curated selection of accessories that are distinctive and have a story behind them, yet remain an affordable luxury. All our cufflinks are designed and made in the UK using the highest quality materials. We recommend the Oliver (in steel) or Edward (in solid brass) cufflinks from Alice Made This, or a pair in solid silver from Tom Pigeon. Any of these choices will make a cherished gift; I’m sure your partner would be delighted with them.
