Five Favourites - Drakes

An established Esquire favourite, Drakes (www.drakes-london.com) is never far from our thoughts, or our wardrobes. We decided to ask head designer Michael Hill for his top five picks from their upcoming autumn collection.

1 30oz Spun and Net Skier Bow Tie (above)
"On the face of it this is a fairly strong bow tie, but worn with a very elegant suit or jacket, the balance can be just right."

 

2 Boiled Lambswool Ribbon Patchwork Stripe Scarf (above)
"Beautifully crafted scarf knitted on the west coast of Scotland, with great colour combinations."

3 Wool and Angora Tie (above)
"Our unlined ties have garnered quite a following, this glen check is in wool and angora which also means it is slightly more casual to wear, so it is a nice alternative when you don't want to dress too formally but still want the excuse of wearing a tie."

 

4 Wool and Silk Unicorn Print Square (above)
Squares are the original scarves and are lovely things to wear. This is a great new take on one of our favourite original Drake's prints.

 

5 Wool and Silk Printed Unicorn Print Handkerchiefs (above)
"These silk and wool hankies combine so well with our tweed winter jackets, a really useful alternative to the classic silk hanky."
