Neck Ties: A Brief History

Neck Ties a Brief History

The next fashion book is nearly ready to be launched. ‘Neck Ties: A Brief History,’ is taking the momentum from The Fashion Synopsis Booklet and translating it into a comprehensive experience of illustration, fashion and history.

‘Neck Ties: A Brief History’ is a mini-sized, super-packed, brief history of neck ties with a sharp focus on men’s fashion and illustration. At 2″ x 2.75″ and 16 pages the read is not long and arduous but intense and glorious.

Completely artisan from the original illustrations featured, to the hand-crafted design of each and every book shipped.

Anyone interested in fashion and intrigued by its history will appreciate the care taken in choosing this special and informative book.

A Collected Gentleman

If you have not heard of A Collected Gentleman yet, please stop and see what is going on with that community (acollectedgentleman.com). The posts are all by one man and focus on several aspects of a creative life. A Collected Gentleman highlights great style with an economical mindset.

“My aim is to show style and self acceptance is priceless and that you can look good without breaking the bank.” -A Collected Gentleman

The fashionable mindset is carried through the photography, the styling and even the poetry.

I met Isaiah Johnson (A Collected Gentleman) on twitter. He had inquired about the cost of fashion portraits after eyeing some of my fashion illustrations. We tweeted a bit and below is the result of our conversation.

Men’s Fashion Templates

I started a little project for general use creating Men’s Fashion Design Templates. These are the first concepts of many to come. I am hoping to create a wide range of ‘specific use’ like the templates below and ‘general use’ for added customizability. Look for free template and vector downloads to be coming soon.
