Until we meet Christopher Moyle, the founder/ designer of Motto & Crest, we didn’t think that there was room for much innovation in the world of ties, without descending into the realm of novelty. It turns out we were wrong (again).
The silhouette and construction are based on the skinny school ties Moyle wore as a boy, but the revelation comes in the form of the panel he has sewn into the blade of his ties. Whether you favour the slightly pervy Black Tie range, which features leather panels, or the contemporary, but tweedy, New Forest collection, there’s a lot to like about Motto & Crest. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough they’re all made in the UK.
