TEA-DYED LINEN TIE
What makes neckwear springy? A lightweight, airy linen, like the sort that Apolis uses in the 2 ¼-inch wide tie they made for us. The Italian fabric is cut on a bias, hand-stitched at a small factory in L.A., and then dyed with tea at the company’s own studio. The nature of the dying process adds even more depth to the already rich material, and the neutral color goes with, well, everything—from polished, black button-downs to rumpled denim shirts.
