There are not too many Australian menswear companies that design silks. Invariably they all buy from the same designs being offered by mills and roughly you will see very safe patterns, motifs, weaves and prints all tailored towards what the brand thinks is their target audience. Many moons ago we threw off the shackles of believing that we had to meet an audience and decided to go off perimeter and try a few things not seen before. Australia was one of those silks, two romantic emus facing toward each other under the glow of the Southern Cross on a moonless night. It was markedly Australian but for the fact that Americans have confused the emus on two occasions for flamingos.
Just four of them were produced this week as a dual reverso bow tie with our limited edition rose gold plated clips. The bow tie is a black bow tie for intensive purposes only that if you want to you can hint at the motif through the centre knot or flip the bow tie around and tie it as an Australiana bow tie.
