Stalward-Ltd-Ties

The list of things we don’t love from CXXVI is short. Very short. From the waist up, CXXVI made just about everything thing you needed for a day or night on the town and a quick recovery the morning after. The only thing that was kind of scarce was a quality collection of fabric-based neckwear. Enter Stalward Ltd. Started by CXXVI’s Matt Gorton, Stalward Ltd is all ties all the time. Gorton handpicks the fabrics (many limited, short run or dead stock) and then each tie is handmade in the Windy City. Knotting one of these up won’t make you look as cool as the guy in the pictures, but you’ll look way better than you would wearing a tie from Macy’s. And yes, we know you probably don’t have to wear a tie daily, but that’s what makes it even more fun.
