Republic of Ties


The idea behind Republic of Ties is to supply elegant and well-designed accessories in affordable prices. Their main product are ties – mostly silk, but also silk-wool blends, like this handsome one from the photo, in a fox pattern.

Before the end of September, there will be some new products in the online shop, so wait patiently. Some bestsellers will be back as well – the club tie (from the photo above), as well as anchor, tucan and red scooter patterns. All will have wool interlining and will be 8,5cm wide.

Additionally, Republic of Ties sells other accessories: pocket squares, cufflinks or bow ties.

poszetka1poszetka2 selles beautiful and high-quality accessories. Their products are usually in limited supply, and are made in Poland by hand using mostly Italian fabrics. Their main products are ties and pocket squares, but in their shop other things are available as well: from bow ties and cufflinks to leather bags and hats.

In september there is a triumphant return of the shantung ties. Shantung is a silk fabric with rich texture coming from irregularities in the fabric, which gives the tie some depth and three-dimentional structure, while making it a bit less formal.

Among the pockets squares, there are Macclesfield fabric ones, made from wool and silk blend. Macclesfield fabrics are used also by Drake’s or Turnbull and Asser.



Benevento is a company making trousers. They have over 20 years of experience in this area, and they utilize it well: they make very good, both quality- and design-wise, product, mostly using British fabrics.

While ordering, you can ask for custom changes – both when it comes to measurements, and details. Side tabs, button fly, pleats. Two basic fit types (regular and slim), variety of sizes (both waist and inseam), and possibility of custom modifications makes it possible to get a very well-fitting pair of trousers for various body types.

Their new product, still in preorder phase, is 9oz denim trousers in classic cut: with pleats, crease through the leg, cuffs and buttoned fly. Interesting approach to jeans, which should be interesting to those less conservative sartorialists. Availible in navy i gray.
