In True British Style

    Collectively, British designers Mark Stearn and Gary Seaward have spent nearly 50 years creating neckwear for such venerable makers as Charles Hill Silks and Jermyn Street Ties—the latter a division of the famed Turnbull & Asser, where their paths ultimately crossed.  In 2002 the pair joined forces to launch their own dual signature Seaward & Stearn collection of what they consider to be the rebirth of the classic English silk necktie. Made entirely by hand from silk woven by one of the last remaining pure silk weavers in the world and printed in London’s English Peak district, known for its weaving and dying heritage, Seaward & Stearn neckwear specializes in authentic British patterns such as micro-printed neats and foulards, super rep stripes, and large, flamboyant geometric designs. The company is also reviving the 1920s-inspired seven-fold production method in which a single piece of silk is folded seven times on itself before being artfully stitched. The collection makes its U.S. debut this spring at Barneys New York, among other specialty stores. (Available through British Apparel Collection, 212.218.6520, www.vii-fold.com)
