Augustus Hare - Cricketer Tie
Augustus Hare of Suffolk
A nice tie above and below from Augustus Hare in the radically conservative style we favour here at The Tweed Pig. Timeless colour combinations of navy blue, red and gold. The Cricketer is 70% wool and 30% silk, woven in Suffolk and handmade in England, and falls in the standard width range. It will go nicely with those Fox cricket flannels from Fox Brothers you have on order.
Augustus Hare is based in the beautiful English county of Suffolk and was founded by Sam Carlisle in 2011. Augustus Hare, like all businesses we like to feature, champions artistry, heritage and craftsmanship. It's terrific to keep coming across small new businesses rejecting the models of the multi-nationals and putting provenance and personality back into the equation.
Augustus Hare, whence the name derives, was an English writer of biographies and travel books, such as Walks in London, Walks in Rome and Wanderings in Spain. He liked a stroll.
Tying a Bow Tie - The Dance
In the video below, the nicely-spoken Sam Carlisle describes a project to film a choreographed dance piece "to illustrate the artistry of tying a bow tie". Sounds like fun. Augustus Hare now have the funding, so we're looking forward to seeing the results.
