Houndstooth ties, also know as Dogtooth or Pepita are a staple in a classic men's wardrobe. Traditionally, it is used for woolen sportcoats, tweeds, suits but also for silk ties.
Fort Belvedere redesigned the classic houndstooth tie, by using a richly textured bourette silk combining it with classic colors so you can look dapper no matter if you wear a navy or charcoal suit or a brown or green Donegal tweed jacket
What makes this Bourette Houndstooth Silk Tie in Navy & Blue so special?
1. Fabric. The bourette silk used for this tie has character and strong texture that is somewhat similar, yet different than shantung. Naturally, silk has different thicknesses and for bourette, it is desirable to have distinctly different yarns so you get a wonderful texture.
We had it woven in a slightly oversized houndstooth that works well with all striped, Glencheck, solid or pinpoint and needle head suit patterns.
The classic colors of Navy Blue and Beige are tied together with a dark contrast and produce a unique and sophisticated look.
Exclusively woven for Fort Belvedere in Italy on heirloom looms, you will not find this fabric anywhere else.
2. Classic Pattern Reinvented. While traditional houndstooth, dogtooth or pepita ties and either printed or jacquard woven in a smaller pattern, this bourette silk necktie adds a lot more character and texture not matter whether it is paired with a business suit, sport coat or casual tweed jacket.
3. Handmade. These ties are entirely sewn by hand, which is important to lend tie the flexibility.
4. Outstanding Knot All Fort Belvedere ties are designed to form a stunning knot, snd feature classic 3-fold construction with an Italian wool interlining. All is held together by a 3-ply silk thread from Germany in Fort Belvedere green.
5.Ties in 3 Sizes. Fort Belvedere offers 3 different sizes so that each man can attain the ideal proportions for their height.
SHORT - for men that are 5'8" - 173 cm or shorter
REGULAR - for men that are around 5'11 - 180cm tall
LONG for men that are 6'3" - 190cm or taller
Made so it could be worn with all classic suits and sport coats, the color scheme of navy blue and beige is probably is not the most classic color combination but by choosing beige instead of white the tie gets a softer look, without loosing much contrast. While blue and white ties often do not work with casual autmn/fall winter colors of bottle green, burnt orange, rust red and brown, this tie harmonizes perferctly with that color scheme. Because of the blue, it pairs well with navy and blue suits. If you have a lot of grey and charcoal suits, the bottle green and pearl gray as well as the burgundy and cream tie are preferable to this one. No matter if you wear this tie with a blazer, linen, worsted, flannel, silk or tweed, for business or casual events, it will not disappoint.

Begin by untying the knot it in the opposite way you tied it; never store ties knotted! Roll it up for a day to allow the wrinkles to relax, and then hang on a tie rack in your closet.
