My new collection for Spring 2010 is currently on display in the windows at Bergdorf Goodman Men’s. The ties and windows look amazing!

Tie-pography by David Hart using ties from our Fall 2009 collection and Spring 2009

Tie-pography by David Hart inspired by Ed National using David Hart & Co. ties from our Fall 2009 and Spring 2009 collections

My buddy Julian Hector sent me a link to Ed Nacional’s “Tie-pography” which has been getting a lot of buzz lately in the graphic design field.   I think that this is really neat.  Check it out below:


The more I looked at this, I remembered seeing it somewhere before. I finally remembered that Botany Brand used a similar technique in their old ads.  I started going through my reference library of magazines from the 1940’s and 1950’s and found some examples.   I scanned some of them in below:





For any of the David Hart & Co. ties pictured in the still life above, please visit Bergdorf Goodman or our website.  The new Fall styles will be available in late August.

The fine folks over at Eames Collector.com have put together this amazing 1 minute video of the various knots of Mr. Charles Eames’ bow ties.  The film ends with a rare view of the original design sketch of the Charles Eames bow tie as designed by Mrs. Ray Eames.  All of Mr. Eames’ bow ties were hand made in New York City.  We make a similar shaped bow tie at David Hart & Co. with pointed ends.

How to Design a Tie

February 19, 2009

Now that my neckwear collection has officially hit the floor at Bergdorf Goodman, several people have asked me about my design process.  I hope the below images and explanation of my Doctor T.J. Eckleburg tie from my Spring 2009 collection will help!

book-gatsby_1925_jacketThe inspiration for this tie began with Doctor T.J. Eckleburg’s all seeing eyes.  The sign from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” was the start!  The book which was written in the 1920’s mentioned the dilapidated sign which was most likely a trade sign that had been left over from the Victorian Era.  I began to research Victorian optometrist signs.  Here is what I found:


I also liked the idea of having a chain on the glasses. They would have properly been worn in the Victorian Era with a chain pinned to the lapel of your jacket.  I began to research old cabinet cards to find an example.

Comments are made and the corrections are made to the pattern through weaving.  Here is the second submit:


I still thought that this was missing a pop of color, so we added blue to the center of the eye.  At this point, I began working with my factory to develop a marker to get minimum wastage when cutting this pattern.  As you can see on the sample yardage below, we had to work on the placement of the motif because they were too close together.


Once the yardage is woven perfectly it is cut, folded, and sewn by hand in our union shop in New York City.
