Our Cleeve of London for Drake’s MTO offer will be ending on July 31st.
Last week we had the pleasure of showing David Evans, the gentleman behind the Grey Fox, around our Factory at No.3 Haberdasher Street.
During the visit David had a Bespoke tie order put through the factory so he could see all the elements that go into the manufacturing of a Drake’s tie. He chose a rather beautiful design in Ancient Madder, a standard length and width and finished by having it self-tipped.
Above are a few images captured while David’s tie was going through the Haberdasher Factory.

Throughout our 37 year history we have been privileged to create and collaborate with exceptional artisans who are among the very best in their respective fields, such as the printers we work with in the North of England.
This talented company has been producing printed silks for 50 years using water which is sourced from their own reservoir. A harmonious marriage of old and new as traditional hand printing sits alongside the more modern method of digital.
The mill is also home to extensive archives, containing the most magnificent designs, some of which are over 100 years old.
Above you will see some behind the scenes images taken on a recent development visit. We hope that these photographs go a small way in demonstrating the quality, heritage and authenticity of this mill.
Drake’s counts itself lucky to have such a wonderful working relationship with this team of highly skilled individuals and long may we continue to do so.

What is your favourite Drake’s piece?
EH: The Double Breasted Navy Car Coat from A/W13.
JA: A 36oz Foulard Tie in brown with red diamond motif.
Why is it your favourite?
EH: I appreciate clothes that move with you. It has a single vent that can be unbuttoned for some ‘swish’ as you walk and also because it looks great in that navy slightly off what everyone else seems to be wearing.
JA: Because of its versatility. I regularly wear this tie on a blue shirt with a blue suit, but it works equally as well on a white shirt with a pair of jeans.
How do you like wearing it?
EH: Temperature permitting, layered up so that it’s possible to stop and admire the architecture even on the coldest of days.
JA: A four-in-hand knot, always.
