Is it just me or have casual ties been getting a bad rep this whole time? I feel like the instant you add this long accessory to your formal fit, you’re labeled a nerd by everyone and not just the jocks. Well, I for one am looking forward to seeing this change and the casual tie being welcomed to wardrobes far and wide with open arms (or necks).
Now whether this is your first foray into neck-enhancers or you’re a tie titan, I would implore you not to overlook or miss this series of Boro Ties from Portland, Oregon-based Japanese textile and apparel brand, Kiriko. This is the brand’s homage to the Japanese technique of Boro, with each tie being pieced together using deadstock vintage kimono and authentic Japanese indigo fabrics, creating a truly unique result each time. All the ties are sewn, pressed, and packaged in Portland and are made to be worn that slight bit looser for a more casual yet textured and unique look.
Available in 3 variations from Kiriko priced at $99 each
