Motto and Crest is a British heritage brand, without the heritage, that is. The brand was launched 6 months ago as a purveyor of stylish ties, using traditional British manufacturing techniques and craftsmanship. But these are not your average stodgy cravats. Designer Christopher Moyle adds a dash of innovation and color to his neckwearmixing unexpected fabrics, like wool and satin or leather, and using modern tailoring concepts. Each style is made in limited quantities in Northampton, England, by one of the country’s oldest manufacturers—the same factory where Savile Row tailors and boarding schools get their ties sewn. Featuring awesome British style names like the Chalk Newton, and Emminster, Motto and Crest ties are a great statement for young blokes in need of some snazzy neckwear. A new black tie collection is launching online today mixing wool with satin or leather for a chic 2 tone monotone effect.
