Charvet’s ties are a mod-ish dose of Parisian chic and a must-have for any fashion-savvy man’s wardrobe. With fans including royalty, presidents and dapper celebrities alike, it’s clear to see why French label Charvet fashion’s best un-kept secret.
Founded in Paris in 1838, Charvet started as one of the world’s first shirt shops, becoming instantly reputable thanks to its well tailored, exquisitely designed shirts and ties. All styles are handmade in France and the popularity of these woven styles has led to the word ‘charvet’ to become a proprietary eponym for the style.
In a recent collaboration with Selfridges for their menswear supplement, Robert Johnston, Associate Editor of GQ Magazine, called Charvet ties simply “the best in the world. Period.” He has also previously championed the label saying, “Charvet is one of those love/hate brands. You love everything it does, but hate the idea of anyone else wearing it because you want to keep it to yourself.”
These woven ties are handmade from 100 per cent pure silk giving them a refined finish. They are also a versatile choice – a hardworking wear-anywhere style, they lend a slick, polished finish to casual weekend outfits as well as laid-back cool to your favourite formal attire.
Charvet ties are a true style investment. The price tag is on the premium side (ranging from £100-120), but the quality and heritage that comes with this purchase is unsurpassed.
For laid-back styles opt for a casual blazer like this one from Paul Smith, pair with a causal shirt like Diesel’s Spacificol-s shirt.
For your bottom half wear your favourite chinos and chose suede over leather shoes for an off-duty finish.
