A well-made tie is nothing short of essential (Gilt MAN Essential No. 1, in fact), and the seven-fold cravats made by Brooks Brothers are pretty much ne plus ultra in that department. Just in case you were slipping on the brand’s nearly 200-year-heritage, this new ad—er, YouTube video—will help you, ahem, wrap your head around it. Thanks to Christian Chensvold at Ivy Style for catching it (he’s good like that!).
Brooks Brothers, the patron saint of prep, takes you on a tour of its Long Island cravat factory.
