Holiday Gift Idea Number 1: Wool Ties

The fifty-odd inches of fabric that extend from a gentleman’s collar hold a tremendous amount of power. The right tie can do it all. Make a color pop. Take individual pieces—a jacket, a shirt, a pant—and bring them together in a balanced, attractive, look. The wrong tie is toxic, even to the finest of garments. Many are the men who have fallen victim to the wrong tie.

Basically, at Astor & Black, we respect the tie.

When the cooler weather comes around, we get to bring out the big guns. Our wool ties. While silk ties are evergreen, our wool ties have a few features that truly set them apart for winter.


Our 100% wool ties have a rich, knotty texture that adds contrast and depth to any winter look. A wool tie lends that warm-and-cozy holiday vibe to a custom dress shirt and cashmere sweater or a custom tweed sport coat.

The Vintage Effect

Wool ties have a softer, muted appearance. The result is an aged, lived-in look. Instant classic: just add wool.


Winter is all about layers. When you’re working with three-piece suits, overcoats, sweaters, and even scarves, you need a tie that can stand up to the heavy winter fabrics. When silk just seems too delicate, look to a wool tie for the perfect balance.

Here are our top 10 wool ties for this holiday season. Add any of these to your wardrobe, and you’ll have a gorgeous piece that you’ll want to wear again winter after winter. Like wine, cheese, and fully-canvassed custom suits, a wool tie only gets better with age.
