Groomsmen's Gifts | Brides Magazine | GK&Co.



    Hey, when it comes to the subject of weddings, there are few sources that could claim knowing their subject as well as BRIDES Magazine. We are super happy that they took a shine to our 1960s Geo Floral Print Neck Tie in their August 2011 issue. With the wedding season in full swing, we get emails every day from both brides and grooms looking for special neckwear for their special days. And we love that they all enjoy the duality of our designs - as both a great accessory to be worn by the men of the wedding party and as perfect groomsmen gifts.

    Thanks again to BRIDES for including General Knot & Co. in your great magazine. Cheers!

It's Always A Gift | GK & Co.


General Knot & Co. is Always a Gift!

You will never see a General Knot & Co. purchase arrive at your door flat-packed in a poly bag, in a box filled with bubble wrap. We appreciate you coming to our shop and want you to enjoy the whole experience.

Whenever we create a design or an element for our online shop, we always consider the "experience" that our customers will potentially have. We wholeheartedly feel that both our customers and the products which we offer are special. To deliver one's purchases with anything less in mind would diminish the entire experience.

Hatch Show Print | A Working Letterpress Museum


I knew about Hatch Show Print before I actually knew about them. I had seen their posters in shop windows and restaurants and even wine labels they had created, but never knew who was behind the beautiful letterpress print work.

1930's Patchwork- A Country Wedding


When designing ties (or anything, for that matter), it often makes sense to consider the possible end use- or end user of the designs.  Sometimes, our vintage fabrics already have a plan of their own.

Snippet & Ink... Kathryn Loves...


Our friend Kathryn at Snippet & Ink wrote a great article and held a giveaway for a General Knot & Co. gift certificate. If you are not yet familiar with Kathryn's blog, Snippet & Ink is one of the premier wedding design blogs and we are honored for our designs to be featured.

Ever since starting our little tie company, we've been very happily inundated with requests from brides and grooms to create unique ties for their weddings. There's nothing quite like playing a part in a couple's wedding day and creating a special piece of the visuals. The collaborations are always a lot of fun and they end up yielding fantastically unique results with our vintage fabrics and detailing.The below photo is of a group that we designed in which all of the ties are different, but held together by the common palette. 

Stay tuned for the General Knot & Co. wedding portfolio and design center...

How to tie a Four-In-Hand knot


A universally well-liked knot, the Four-In-Hand is also the simplest to tie. More or less, it's the Half Windsor minus a wrap, so you end up with a smaller knot and a somewhat neater and tighter look. All in all, all knots are good-looking. Just choose the one that speaks to the occasion. Hey, there's some sound advice for you.  Now, go forth young man!

Kempt Featuring a GK & Co. Favorite

Kempt, a great editorial division of Urban Daddy, wrote a solid post about one of our most popular ties- The Seersucker & Folk Art Two Tone Tie. We love their take on the design, really appreciating the era from which the pattern came from and the tongue-n-cheek General Knot & Co. ethos- "It’s an Eisenhower-era, archival folk-art print—along the lines of your Gitman Vintage shirts or a Levi’s throwback—only now it’s found its way onto your tie rack."

Thanks for the introductions Kempt- glad to call you friends!
