Perforated Black & Red Leather Necktie. Red backed automotive leather tie. Sourced from the off-cuts of automotive seat leather, it is uniquely Detroit! Rugged textured and perforated cowhide with a soft suede reverse. Laser cut in house for perfect crisp, modern lines. We’ve carefully selected hides for both fashion and durability – leather ties are meant to not only span the seasons, but decades. Double stitched center seam with raw edges.
Leather will get even more awesome with wear. This particular batch is sourced from the highest grade leather used in the automotive industry – for fancy pants cars (and behinds) now for fancy necks!
perforation: Holes approx. 1/4″ apart.
leather thickness: Approx. 0.045″-0.05″
leather weight Approx. 2.8-3.0 oz/sq ft.
We’re currently researching the provenance of the actual cars that were outfitted in this style, and from what we can decipher, they were used in the manufacturing of Mercedes Benz AMG seating.
57.5″ long and just a wee hair under 2″ wide at its widest point. A slim cut, just a hair wider than our skinny width and “standard” length.
We do all of our own laser cutting, from pattern drafting to the making the computer and vector file communicate with the laser, to minding it cut, to washing and cleaning the edges and sewing the center seam – every step from start to finish. This is not farmed out to some anonymous laser shop. Our shared laser cutter is located just a block from our screenprinting workshop in Detroit’s Historic Eastern Market.
