Red Tartan Tie

Event Reportage | GQ Party in NYC

Dressed impeccably, these gentlemen brought their swagger to a party hosted by GQ in New York.

Award-winning photographer and music video director- and the face of GENTRY’s F/W 2010 campaign, Anthony Mandler, with Trey Songz (wearing GENTRY navy plaid tie), along with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Kevin Liles.

Take notes gentlemen. This is how to look your best with tie, with bowtie and sans tie.

Notable Personage | Trey Songz at GQ Party NYC

Mr. Trey Songz once again wearing a GENTRY necktie. This time the navy plaid from The Hemingway Collection, S/S 2010.

Again, the muted tone on tone of the pairing of shirt and tie create a classic, yet modern feel that almost any man can have at the ready.

And record executive, Mr. Kevin Liles, is also looking quite sharp in his b+w gingham with black bow tie- beautiful execution.

Tie is available online at Confederacy.

PR Reportage | Kevin Alejandro in Latina Magazine

True Blood’s Kevin Alejandro was recently featured in the latest issue of Latina Magazine.

Thank you to stylist Warren Baker for bedecking Mr. Alejandro in The Gatsby tie bar and collar clip (Fitzgerald Collection, F/W 2009) paired with The Edmont tie (Salinger Collection, F/W 2010).

All pieces are available on GENTRY’s website’s e-commerce section.

Gentlemanly Advice | How to Wear Your Collar Clip

A signature piece of ours is the collar clip. This particular accoutrement is a modern uptake on the classic collar pin/collar bar that was a prevalent piece of menswear in the 1920s.

This small piece of mens jewelry was designed to clasp on to the tips of each shirt collar, passing underneath the knot of the tie, functioning to keep the collar held steadfastly down and in place.

Unfortunately since those times, dress shirts no longer have the buttons and therefore old collar pins and collar bars have no where to be fastened.

Enter GENTRY and our redesign. Each collar clip is fastened with small pins that pin into the tips of each collar, fastened together by a double link chain that appropriately hangs below the knot of the tie, adding just enough of a touch to elevate your ensemble.

Here we see a gentleman seamlessly pulling off the look du jour. A classic grey herringbone jacket in the winter atop a denim shirt with a slim mustard silk knit tie. Pulling it all together are the antiqued brass tie bar and collar clip. And notice the slight nod to anarchy with the collar flipped out- a perfect touch to an already flawless outfit.

Los Angeles Cobbler | Dragan Mrdja

We had a leisurely tea with Brent Zerger from LA Eyeworks. Always a gentlemen with an ear to the smartest things in the city, he introduced us to a great design-concept store, Specific, run by  Brooks Hudson Thomas.

In the store, we were taken by the craftsmanship of a local Angeleno cobbler, Dragan Mrdja, who hand makes the most incredibly beautiful shoes.

Even though our true loyalties in this world lie with Mr. George Esquivel, we were still thoroughly impressed.
