A keen collector of nifty neckwear from a young age, Stephen Fry treats readers to a selection of truly tremendous ties alongside a bevy of unforgettable anecdotes and full-colour photographs.
A witty, illustrated ode to Stephen Fry’s decades-long obsession with a man’s most trusted accessory- the tie.
By the time he was fifteen, Stephen Fry owned more than forty ties. Inherited initially from a grandfather, matters turned more serious when he could afford to buy them brand spanking new.
Stephen’s collection now numbers well into the hundreds. And each tie – whether floral, fluorescent, football themed; striped or spotty, outrageous or simply debonair – tells a story. A tale of the garment itself – the shops, makers and designers – as well as of Stephen, his reasons for choosing it, whether an
occasion or just a whim.
Inspired by Stephen’s hugely popular Instagram posts, this book will feature beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations and photographs to celebrate his expansive collection of man’s greatest asset: the Tie, in all its sophisticated glory.
