A man’s tie is more than just a piece of attire. It’s an opportunity for him to make a statement about who he is. The Añel Sartoria Seven
Fold Tie is a work of art for the discerning gentleman. It’s a very rare find these days, a tie without triplure. What that means in layman’s
terms is that instead of the more conventional interlining, the element holding this tie together is the piece of silk within itself, then
folded 7 times, 4 on one border and 3 on the other. Tailoring doesn’t get more refined than that; AnelSartoria.com. — SANDY LINDSEY
One of life’s great pleasures is slipping on a pair of truly
well-made shoes or boots. The full-service John Lobb store
in the Miami Design District understands this and offers
both bespoke and ready-to-wear styles in keeping with
the tradition this custom shoemaker started just under
150 years ago. “Miami’s appreciation of modernity and
heritage is perfectly in line with our design philosophy,”
says Artistic Director Paula Gerbase. The Miami store will
carry a series of lightweight shoes in keeping with our
warm climate; JohnLobb.com. — SANDY LINDSEY

Neckties first appeared on
Father’s Day cards in the
1920s. Soon after, they
became the most popular
Father’s Day gift and continue
to be to this day; both in the
U.S. and around the globe.
What tie is worn by both
men and women? The Bola
Tie, the official tie of Arizona.
Conventional ties, however, still
rule with U.S. spending going
over $1 billion for over 100
million ties annually.
The stripes on American ties
go from the top right to the
bottom left, while the stripes on
most British ties are opposite.
The Brits banned neckties in
hospitals in 2007, believing they
may spread infections.
