Shepherd's check or sometimes called Pepita is slightly different from a classic gingham pattern, yet a classic fabric that works particularly well for ties. Especially a smaller shepherd's check tie works well with blue or white shirts and business suits as well as with oxford shirts and tweed sport coats. Overall, a shepherd's check tie in blue and red is a great addition to every gentleman's wardrobe because it is elegant, and different, yet classic and versatile

Shepherd's Check 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.
How to Store This Tie
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.
