Grandpappy Striped Necktie
If you’ve been searching for a modern colorful take on a British regimental striped tie, we invite you to fall in love with the Grandpappy Striped Necktie.
British regimental striped ties are considered to be one of the original styles of men’s neckties with roots that are rich in history.
These classic ties have stripes of varying colors that represent membership in the British military regiments. They have been in continuous use since the 1920s, and maybe even the 1880s.
In the countries of the British Commonwealth, a necktie’s stripes usually run from a person’s left shoulder (their heart) down to their sword (their right waist). Legend has it that the stripes run in the exact same direction as the rifles that British soldiers strap over their shoulders.
The bold colors in our Grandpappy Striped Necktie give this very traditional style a contemporary on-trend look.
The Grandpappy Striped Necktie pairs beautifully with both dress shirts and suits.
This tie works with a white, grey, blue, red, or black shirt.
This necktie is made on Italian weavers of 100 percent silk with a 100 percent wool interlining.
The wool interlining gives this tie weight, shape, and bulk.

The Grandpappy Striped Necktie is an easy maintenance tie that’s made of sturdy fabric. It features a loosely sewn slip stitch to prevent breakage caused by repeated knotting.
