Skulls, skiers and “psycho-bunnies” are just a few of the irreverent designs you’ll find embroidered on Brett Fahlgren’s chic neckties. A NYC-based style expert and correspondent for <i>GQ</i>, Fahlgren draws inspiration from traditional Ivy League men’s fashion, childhood memories, and his Swedish heritage to design his handmade cravats, which are woven in the UK and finished in the States. Fahlgren’s tie collection isn’t only about skeletons and angry rabbits: for those formal boardroom meetings and business deals, his collection offers plenty of versatile plaids, subdued stripes, and modest antique crests. Recently Fahlgren launched a line of ski sweaters, scarves, hats, and gloves to keep you fellows warm during those winter months.
