The versatile necktie has been a must-have among menswear staples for decades. Since the emergence of “Casual Friday,” and later the lifesaving “business casual” dress code, the necktie is no longer limited to the office as more and more men continue to experiment with its decorative nature, incorporating their own personal style and preference of dress. With an always evolving array of advanced machinery paired with a newfound appreciation for handcrafted garbs, the techniques surrounding the production of neckties are rarely one in the same. Take the New York-based accessory-maker C. Chauchat (pronounced “show-shaw”) for instance. From the creative, experienced hands of Curie Choi, C. Chauchat merges classical sensibilities with experimental design using their signature “double layer” technique to offer some of the finest ties in the game. In this technique, the young brand uses a proprietary method whereby another piece of fabric is additionally enveloped around the original tie. This allows for a blank canvas to portrait innovative patterns, unique fabric combinations, complex textures, and an imaginative blend of colors, in-turn creating a sense of dimension found nowhere else. In advancing our PROCESS series, we showcase the meticulous steps behind creating one of C. Chauchat’s refined neckties.
