Regimental ties can solve the age-old menswear problem

Regimental ties

Throughout history, it has been women who were forced into the corset. Yet when it comes to rules  of fashion, it appears that it is men who should know to play around in a limited space. The margin  of error is so restricted, that a small element, like regimental ties instead of normal ties, makes the  difference. If you are able to discern the appealing challenge in scrupulous optimization at the  margins, there is a chance you might succeed. For there is certainly improvement possible in a man’s  attire – a classful man always has a special something extra. At Amidé Hadelin, where our careers  are focused on this special something, we know exactly what it is: man’s style is composed of sheer  quality. This quality is improved one detail at the time, so if you are ready to tweak at the margins  with us, we will begin looking at one essential detail today: the regimental ties

Regimental ties and their fascinating history

These ties occupy a very special place in menswear history, due to their specific English tradition. As  the armchair etymologist might suspect, the regimental ties have to do with the army and the  different regiments that find their place there. Originally, every English regiment possessed their  own specific colours and colour combination. These were worked into their attire, and especially  their ties. After a certain time, servicemen started wearing the ties not only on duty, but also in  times of peace. As the experts of Arnhem Jim explain in their concise history, the use of  regimental ties in leisure time took off when the future king Edward VIII visited the United States at  the beginning of the 20th century. One element of his attire particularly enamored the American  journalists and wear-watchers: his regimental ties. From this point onwards, a new classic was born  in the world of menswear. 

Regimental ties have a complex style

Of course, it is advised not to wear a tie of a regiment that you are not part of, at the risk of  offending its members. Despite this limitation, there are many different regimental ties and colour  combinations that you can choose from that are not bound to any particular institution, and it is  easy to be overwhelmed by the choice. But in these times, it is always helpful to look at the  authorities and refine according to your own tastes, as our own Tim Mureau explains. If you hold on to these principles and proceed at small steps, you will  inevitably honour the long tradition that is held by the English regiment ties.
