Estimated number that can be made: 8 item(s)
A lined 3-fold construction is the classic. Consider a lined 6-fold if you like a heavier tie. Unlined 7-folds are an old-fashioned complex construction.
Let us know your knot in the checkout notes area if it is a different knot from what we list above. Keep in mind that different knots need different lengths; as an example a half-Windsor usually needs two inches more length than a four-in-hand. This is due to the extra looping.
The length is measured from the tip of the big end to the tip of the small end. See our Tie Guide point number 6 for measuring help.
The drop down menu for the length range is for you to order a length range. For example 60.1 to 63 inches = plus $5. This will show on your invoice when you checkout.
Width is measured at the widest part of the tie there are no rules for the best width, it should be based on your body size and your personal preference. It is a sartorial myth that you should match your tie width to your jacket lapels.
The drop down menu for the width range is for you to order a width range. For example up to 4 inches = plus $5. This will show on your invoice when you checkout.
Classic Tipping has the same fabric in the triangular underside of the tie as the front of the tie. Rolled edges can only be added to ties without tipping - If you select different tipping tell us which tipping fabric in the checkout notes area.
A bar tack is a small stitch on the reverse side of the tie that helps to hold the tie together.
Normally men who are members of a regiment or other group in the UK wear a tie in the British stripe direction; the direction varies. The British direction has a charge because there is extra silk used. The American direction is the worldwide standard.
For special measurements etc. please ask before ordering at: Gift boxes are standard 2 ties to a box. For an extra charge we can pack ties one tie to a gift box.We use white tissue paper to wrap the ties.

Daniel a member of the US Army Corps of Engineers with fellow Corp members helped us with the design of this tie.

George Washington appointed the first engineer officers of the Army on June 16, 1775, during the American Revolution. The Army established the Corps of Engineers as a separate branch on March 16, 1802, and gave the engineers responsibility for founding and operating the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

The US Army Corps of Engineers has built coastal fortifications, surveyed roads and canals, eliminated navigational hazards, explored and mapped the Western frontier, and constructed buildings and monuments in the Nation’s capital.

During the 19th century, Army Corps of Engineers supervised the construction of coastal fortifications and mapped much of the American West with the Corps of Topographical Engineers, which had a separate existence for 25 years (1838-1863). The Corps of Engineers also constructed lighthouses, helped develop jetties and piers for harbors, and carefully mapped the navigation channels.

In the 20th century, Army Corps of Engineers became the lead federal flood control agency and significantly expanded its civil works activities, providing hydroelectric energy and recreation areas. Its role in responding to natural disasters also grew dramatically.

Assigned the military construction mission in 1941, the Army Corps of Engineers built facilities at home and abroad to support the U.S. Army and Air Force. During the Cold War, Army engineers managed construction programs for America’s allies.

In addition, the Corps of Engineers also completed large construction programs for federal agencies such as NASA and the postal service. The Army Corps of Engineers also maintains a rigorous research and development program in support of its water resources, construction, and military activities.

In the late 1960s, the Army Corps of Engineers started extensive work on environmental preservation and restoration.

Army engineers have supported 9/11 recovery efforts and currently play an important international role in the rapidly evolving Global War on Terrorism, including reconstruction in Iraq and Afghanistan.


Please visit our Tie Guide page for help with your measurements - please note that the amount of stretch varies as is based on how often you wear your tie and how tightly you make your knot etc. Only you can decide your correct length.
