Fry's Ties

"Discover the story of a gentleman's most distinguished accessory. In this charming volume, the iconic actor and bestselling author Stephen Fry excavates his epic collection of neckties. From the traditional "egg and bacon" colors of the Marylebone Cricket Club, to the exuberant dalmatian pattern of a 1980s Nicole Miller design, each tie tells a story. The book includes an essay about Fry's own necktie journey and a collection of snappy photos and illustrations of the ties themselves. Follow the helpful diagrams to master the half Windsor, the Van Wikj, and other knots for yourself, and find inspiration for your own accessorizing. Or simply sit back and enjoy this informative and witty tour of history, culture, art, and design, peppered with amusing anecdotes"-- Discover the story of a gentleman's most distinguished accessory, the necktie, with the inimitable Stephen Fry as your guide.
