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.
