Bespoke Services

Bespoke and Custom Made Tie Service

In the Spirit of Savile Row Bespoke

In the spirit of Savile Row bespoke tailoring, Drake's is proud to offer superbly handcrafted neckwear to your personal order. Each of the tie lengths offered within our bespoke service has been crafted from individual master patterns graded perfectly to the appropriate length of the tie so that the knot area is neither too wide nor too narrow. 

Select from the following lengths (in cms):
• 140 and 144cm in 7 or 8cm widths.
• 148, 152 and 156cm in 7, 8 or 9cm widths.
• 160 and 164cm in 8, 9 or 10cm widths.

In the spirit of transparency, please note there is a 1 cm tolerance on either side of the designated measurement for lengths quoted simply because that is as close as hand-craftsmanship can come when working with fine silks.

On how to establish your correct length, it’s best to work from a personal tie that is nearest to the length you have in mind. A simple guide would be to measure the tie from the tip of the front blade to the tip of the tail. Then tie the tie using your knot of choice, have someone measure how much longer both the front and tail need to be in order to reach to just above the trouser waistband.  Add these measures to the length of the tie and deduct 2cms to allow for fabric stretch; as a rule of thumb, printed fabrics are inclined to stretch more than woven fabrics.

Interlining:  light, regular, or heavy weight, as a guide, for standard production, our 7cm ties are lined with the lightest weight and all other shapes are lined with regular weight lining. The choice is yours.

 For our bespoke service we request a minimum of three ties of identical specifications in the same or different fabrics. The cost for custom work is 125 pounds per tie. The turnaround time is 2 – 4 weeks. Contact: drakes@drakes-london.com.
