And finally, for the inspiration of the last tie in the 'Behind Every Tie Is A Great Man' collection. The Leonard tie is made of Burutti silk, which the material has a soft bobble texture and light sheen. When I first saw the material it reminded me of the quote below from the brochure:
My mother brought me a Pepsi sweat top, which I instantly loved, even when the material started to bobble and it got too small I could not resist wearing it. The texture reminds me that well-loved objects are personal treasures.
Almost everyone I know, when they were younger had a favourite toy, item of clothing or place they'd liked go such as the park. This tie is all about the things we cherished when we were younger or even now, because when you truly like something it expresses itself in many forms. In my case, I kept wearing my favourite top until it created the same likeness as the texture shown on the tie.
There are nine exclusive Leonard ties hand made due to fabric available worldwide. Therefore no more ties in this material will be made and once the last tie has been brought, it is finished. I have said it before and it will not be the last. The person who owns this tie will have a unique piece of craftsmanship, which caters towards their personal style.
