What you need to know

Madder ties have been a staple in the connoisseur's fall wardrobe for many decades. It is easy to appreciate the rich yet subtle colors of ancient Madder red, indigo blue, buff or green, but what exactly does Madder mean and why is it so popular?

Madder dye has been derived from the Rubua Rubiaceae plant for thousands of years, which is why it is often referred to as ancient Madder. The madder red color is created by using alizarine, which is obtained by grinding the roots of the plant. This procedure was necessary until the 1860s, when the red dye could be produced in a lab. Today, all madder colors are produced chemically, yet the name remains the same.

What makes this Madder tie by Fort Belvedere special?

1. Real Ancient Madder. Today, there a few that can print real madder fabrics. It is a difficult, multi-step silk screen print process and hence only the best silk qualities are used. Fort Belvedere sources real ancient Madder fabric from England. To produce a blue madder, for example, natural white base cloth is outlined with a pattern and highlight colors are applied to certain areas. Once the pattern printing is finished, the fabric is immersed in an indigo bath, rendering the omitted areas Madder blue. This Red Paisley Tie is vivid and stunningly beautiful

2. Chalky feel. Madder ties are also known for their distinctive chalky feel, which is achieved by adding the formerly stripped natural gum back to the silk. This complicated process results in beautiful, rare fabric that we complement with equally high quality finishing touches:

3. Details. Self tipped or untipped with  fine hand rolled edges, an interlining chosen for ideal tie knots, and a signature green 3-ply silk yarn from Germany for durability. 4.

4. Sizes. Fort Belvedere offers 3 different sizes so that each man can attain the ideal proportions for their height.

Size

SHORT - for men that are 5'8" - 173 cm or shorter

REGULAR - for men that are around 5'11 - 180cm tall

Madder Tie Style Tips

Most modern ties have thick interlinings and only allow for thick, bulky tie knots. With Fort Belvedere ties, you need not be limited to only one shape. Elegant gentlemen such as Prince Charles, or John F. Kennedy preferred worn smaller, elegant four-in-hand tie knots. Fort Belvedere allows you to tie small, regular and big tie knots! Choose the correct size tie for your stature for small and normal size tie knots, or chose the next longer tie for Balthus or double Windsor knots.

This red paisley madder tie with works great with dark suits and light suits alike. It is definitely a statement. The combination of classic paisleys with a vivid red also works for more casual combinations. Overall this tie is a great way to expand into paisleys and madder ties.

How to Store This Tie
