Claude’s Tie


Untie the past with Claude’s Tie by Saint Rita Parlor. Inspiration can come from many places, but with Claude’s Tie the inspiration is tied to the past. Neil Bardon founder/craftsman and creative director of Saint Rita Parlor was inspired by his grandmother’s husband, Claude, who was unfortunately a prisoner of war. Canvas was standard during the war, and what better way to produce a tie than out of this iconic material. Handmade in USA (Downtown Los Angeles) from surviving vintage canvas of that time period, Bardon has produced a wicked looking tie that features subtle stenciling. Without the past there would be no future, and I can see no better way to carry the past forward than with a Neil Bardon’s creation, or it will forever slip away.
