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.

The US Navy was founded on October 13, 1775 when the Second Continel Congress passed a resolution creating the Continental Navy.

Under President George Washington the Naval Act of 1794 created a permanent standing U.S. Navy which was created to fight the Barbary pirates of North Africa.

Six frigates were authorized as part of the Act. Over the next 20 years, the Navy fought the French Republic Navy (1798–99), Barbary states in the First and  Second Barbary Wars and the British in the War of 1812. 

Later the U.S. Navy fought in the Mexican–American War in 1846, and fought pirates in the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, as well fighting the slave trade off the coast of West Africa.

In 1861 the U.S. Navy battled with the Confederate Confederate States Navy with both classic sailing ships and new ironclad ships. 

After the Civil War, most of U.S. Navy’s ships were placed in reserve.

In the 1880s the U.S. Navy began a modernization program and served well in the 1898 war with Spain.

By the 1921 the U.S. Navy was equal in size to British Royal Navy.

During World War II the U.S. Navy supported the American Island Hopping campaign and ended up with over 1,600 ships.

Following the 1991 collapse of the Russian Navy the American Navy became the world’s undisputed naval super power.
