Kiel James Patrick is growing up—one four-in-hand knot at a time. The guy known for peddling Turk’s head knot rope bracelets is now offering a collection of neckwear inspired by his love of the sea. Aptly named Maritime Repp, the pattern is a nautical twist on the traditional repp stripe. The sailing rope detail evokes an East coast sensibility suitable long after summer has left us. And in typical Kiel James Patrick fashion, the ties and bows are of course handcrafted in the U.S. from Italian-spun ribbed silk.
Kiel James Patrick and me
Newport, RI July 2011
I have been throwing one on for parties, tennis matches, and cocktails for the past three weeks with many a compliment—but don’t just take my word for it. Patrick is giving one reader the chance to knot one up for themselves on his dime. Enter to win a Maritime Repp tie and bow and do a little growing up yourself.
