Alexander Olch for ACL & Co.

Apr 28th, 2011 | Categories: ACL & Co., ACL SHOP | by Michael Williams

We at ACL & Co. teamed up with our designer & filmmaker friend Alexander Olch to create a small collection of repp stripe neckties and bowties for spring. The repp stripe patterns and colors are inspired by an old men’s shop catalog from the early 1960s and remade exclusively for the ACL & Co. by a mill in England. All eight different silk ties were then handmade in Alexander Olch’s factory in Brooklyn, New York to exacting standards that one has come to expect from an Alexander Olch production.

We started talking about these ties a long long time ago and are proud to finally see them be released just in time for the escapades that coincide with warmer weather. And keeping in mind those positive changes in temperature, one might even consider these ties appropriate for a drink or two on the grass by a windmill. We leave those adventures up to you. Just don’t forget us when you head to the bar. [Alexander Olch for ACL & Co.]

    fun stuff, this is the best ACL collab (or at least slightly interesting one). the rest have been just ACL putting a tag on an already existing product, no?

    Not necessarily Fernie. With Tellason we created an all new fit / pattern / style. With London Undercover we came up with a new product and design for his line (Blackwatch scarf), for Billykirk we developed a special bag / style….

    From one tie guy to another, these are really beautiful! The repp stripe looks particularly great in the bows. Cheers!

    Gee, I didn’t even notice the bows until the comments, and I am a photographer. You may want to give them some air…

    Love the ties – any chance to get “long” for tall guys?

    I wear only diamond tip bow ties, these are perfect. They can be difficult to find.

    Are the bowties the pre-tied version, or the tie-’em-yourself kind? Thanks!

    Are there knit-bowties? I’d like an acl one of those.
