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.

Step 1 / The supplies for making a necktie
Aside from the typical tools, we use a Point Turner and a Loop Turner.
Step 2 / Tracing the patterns
The segments of the tie are traced with tailors chalk on the diagonal grain and then cut.
STEP 3 / 6 pieces that make up a typical necktie
3 segments of length, 2 pieces of tipping (facing), and a self loop.
Step 4 / Tipping positioning
The tipping is positioned to prepare for machine stitching in order to make the point of the tie.
Step 5 / Machine stitching
Machine stitching is used to sew the tipping and the three segments to each other.
Step 6 / Shaping the point
A Point turner is used to poke out the shape the tie tip, which is then steamed in place.
Step 7 / Centering the interlining
The core that holds the shape and width of the tie.
Step 8 / Handsewing the slipstich
The slipstitch is sewn down the whole length of the tie; the stitch catches the interlining so that the fabric doesn’t twist around its core.
Step 9 / The Bar Tack
Handsewn, in order to tack the end of the slipstitch with strength.
Step 10
Hand sewing the self loop
Step 11
Hand sewing the label
Step 12 / Finish

HYPEBEAST Eats... Porchetta Sandwich by Meat & Bread

Situated in Vancouver’s emergent Gastown district, Meat & Bread is a specialty sandwich shop that opened its doors in 2010. Only slightly more striking than the shop’s location bordering the notorious downtown east-side is its distinctive and genuine interior aesthetic. Clever branding mixed with a rustic yet inviting style has allowed Meat & Bread to easily stand out amongst other eateries in the area. One of the shop’s signature dishes is a hearty porchetta sandwich. Frankie and the guys behind the counter were nice enough to give us a tutorial on how to make this dish and even a taste!
