Alba Reversible Bow Tie


“When I started designing ‘Alba’ (pronounced al-uh-puh), I had suit patterns in mind. The houdstooth pattern was hands down my favorite, in part because it originated out of Scotland which is a significant part of my heritage. The word ‘alba’ has a rich history, first finding its origin in classical texts by Ptolemy, a Greek mathematician and astronomer, but is now most commonly used as the Gaelic word for the country of Scotland. For this houndstooth I wanted something cooler than the traditional black, even icy, which led me to this blue pattern. ‘Alba’ pairs perfectly with any range of cool colors, but goes exceptionally well with a tan or brown suit, and really pops off a crisp white shirt.” – Hugh
