24 | www.bensilver.com Our neckwear is made entirely by hand in our English, Italian or Amer ican workrooms. The cutting, sewing and the finishing are all done by hand. Each of our ties is cut by an artisan into 3 pieces – the back, the front, and the neck – allowing the tie to conform to the neck. A stitch, called a bar tack, is also applied by hand, and joins the two sides on the back. Our ties have a slipstitch, whose end, knotted, can be found loose under the bar tacked area.This stitch gives resilience to the tie and assures that it will fall out to return to its original shape when hung in your closet. All our ties are lined to produce the proper weight for the tie, so that they knot perfectly. Our neckties are cut from the finest materials – generally pure English or Italian silk, but occasionally Scottish cashmere, wool or Irish linen. You can feel the luxuriousness of the fabric in the hand of the tie, whether woven or printed. Fine neckwear …for the Spring season 1-800-221-4671 | 25

Beneath a sweater, the cutaway is discrete and also never f loppy. In choosing these six new fabrics, woven in Switzerland expressly for us, we selected classic patterns that will provide understated elegance, however they are worn. These f ine shirts are constructed, as all our shirts are, to assure the softness and silky hand of the fabric, and for comfort and durability.The pure cotton shirts are high thread count 2-ply Swiss cotton; the cotton and linen shirts offer the comfort and durability of cotton, with the lightness of linen.

54 | www.bensilver.com We are again delighted to offer our own exceptional linen shirts for the warmer weather. Generations past, Charlestonians wore linen to withstand the brutally hot days of summer, and in tribute to that history we have created a linen shirt of the highest quality, in eight wonderfully vivid colors that any contemporary man would enjoy wearing. We have tailored this shirt with the same meticulous attention to detail as we do our dress shirts, from the finest Irish linen available. Nevertheless, it is styled for greater versatility than a dress shirt because the open collar is soft and easy fitting (much like a button down shirt without the buttons), and the French front has no placket, to assure complete simplicity in styling. The button cuff and all of the front buttons are a beautiful horn style for an extra touch of elegance, and the shirt bottom is squared with split side seams so that it can also be worn out very casually. Can be machine washed in cold water. Sizes M–XXL. Shown left to right, top row: F-pink; H-white; D-orange; G-green; second row: C-blue; E-purple; B-yellow; A-red.
