Few people enjoy donning a tie, but better to do it than get fired, or worse, pull weekend cleanup duty, which double sucks since Chad's stepdad's Tahoe spot is totally open. Break the mold without breaking the system, with Dolbeau Neckwear.
From a Montreal duo with a passion for standout style & craftsmanship, Dol's a new line of hand-sewn, custom-tailored neck-cessories that blend "quirky detailing" with "casual class", but aren't jean capris. That's right: japris. Start with one of 21 two-toned colorways -- multicolored wool plaids & metallic silks on the wide end, contrasting solid fabrics on the narrow -- then choose your width (standard, skinny, or thicker traditional), tip style (standard, flat, or the boxcutter-esque "jagged"), and length, which comes with advice based on the wearer's height & neck size, though if neck size is an issue, the best tie may be around your stomach. Brazen sartorialists'll also find a dozen reversible bow ties, each avail in two sizes of three styles (standard butterfly, "batwing", or diamond), and with 14 distinct button possibilities, from leather, to coconut, to six different mother of pearls, also the plot of the upcoming Broadway smash Pappa Mia!
Ensuring you'll continue to stand out, each of their colorways is cut in batches that're limited, just like your time at Tahoe now that Dean Porthouse is totally harshing your mellow.
