Starboard Clothing Charleston Toile Necktie (c/o)
Photographed in Athens, GA
We’re leaving the deep south for this giveaway, making way to Annapolis, Maryland to Starboard Clothing. As an anything-with-an-anchor on it obsessor, I was first drawn to them because of their logo. I was happy to discover that their ties are truly unique, donning patterns I hadn’t seen, and products that tell stories…like the one you see above.
The Charleston Toile Necktie continues to be our favorite of theirs. The inspiration for it was the concept that the pattern would be large enough look interestingly unbalanced on a bow tie, but be small enough to be able to have visible details. The same concept translated to the necktie. The other inspiration is the classic southern qualities of toile on curtains, couches and pillows. Particularly prevalent in Charleston, the city was perfect in serving as the namesake for the tie. Founder Ben Meredith adds: “Although toile is available in a number of colors, Ryan and I are both huge fans of tobacco jars with the places named on them. We let that help us choose the color combination. I actually have one just like this. This design is so classic, and that’s what we wanted the tie to be.”
