Monk FactsFew things look shabbier than a creased tie. Many of you will have witnessed a poor sucker who, though his suit, shirt and shoes are sharp, looks like he has just rolled out of bed because of an appallingly crinkled tie. Ties should never be ironed, so a man’s best hope of removing creases is by steaming his tie, an arduous and thankless task. The only foolproof way of travelling with your ties is to use a tie case. This case is built like a tank, using Clegg’s thick, supple tumbled calf and tough Sunbrella lining. It has space for two to four ties, opening out thanks to a long RiRi zipper. When it comes to keeping your ties smooth and sharp, you should never cut corners – buy a tie case. Leather goods should be tough but elegant. A man’s briefcase should last the duration of his career and its patina should be a record of his decades of meetings, late nights and countless commutes. It should be built to stand up to years of use and all kinds of weather, but still look good enough to impress a colleague. Frank Clegg knew all this when he started out in the mid 1970s and he has spent the intervening decades refining his craft and sourcing the best materials to transform this ideal of what leathergoods should be into concrete form. Clegg specialise in the use of harness leather, a full-thickness cowhide that has been treated extensively with hot grease and waxes to give it flexibility, smoothness and depth of colour. Only thick, perfect hides can be used and it is an expensive process, but the leather produced is the only material that can be used for the rigid, durable pieces for which Clegg is renowned.
