When we first had the chance to chat with Josh about the tie there were a few things we set as design parameters. The first, and most important for us, was how we were going to use the concept of a tie to reach a goal of $10,000 raised in support of the Dream Factory. $10,000 is the average cost to fulfill a dream for a very deserving child and we wanted to use the project and opportunity to do just that. Just as important for us was to create a tie that was going to be accessible to everyone from a cost and availability perspective.
After thorough fabric exploration and review of a handful of tangible samples we had our winner. The tie we proceeded with is a fairly standard 3.5″ width silhouette that is a textured 100% silk weave. The tie is refined and subtle but intricate and thought out in detail. Unlike some of the wool/silk blends we explored, we felt the silk allowed the tie to be a year round staple associating with smart suiting and formal sophisticaton while working equally as well with a more casual wardrobe. A hardworking tie with subtle detailing that includes a premium interlining fabrication, J.M.44 woven label loop and a Voak branded tipping fabric done in The Dream Factory colours.
The Voak Sportswear x Josh Morrissey necktie is bound to become an indispensable part of your sartorial repertoire. The tie is limited to 300 pieces and will be available at all Jets Gear locations beginning later this week. The tie will retail for $59.99.
