Silk Necktie: In the Pinks

Get 'In the Pinks' with this incredibly handsome gold necktie featuring red-jacketed riders on horseback and dancing foxes. In the meantime, allow me to share what I discovered when I went looking for the origin of the phrase In the Pinks. According to http://www.phrases.org.uk, "The association of the phrase 'in the pink' with the so-called pink jackets worn by the UK fox-hunting aficionados is unproven. The jackets, which are in fact scarlet, have been said to have derived their 'hunting pink' name from a tailor called Thomas Pink and that 'in the pink' refers to both the jackets and to the healthy, energetic approach to the pastime that many hunters adopt. Fox-hunters can be said to be literally in the pink but the hunting derivation is nevertheless far-fetched. There are no historical records of any such Thomas Pink and his association with the fox-hunting fraternity wasn't suggested until long after the first references to pink jackets." 

Check out the many photos that'll show you the details that make these ties so charming: the logo inset on the back of the tie, the sweet gift box into which a tie arrives rolled rather than folded - oh, and these ties are a little bit longer than our ordinary tie, cut to 58 inches long with a 3 1/4 inch width at their widest spot on the apron. Every tie has a long center-stitched self loop and Bird Dog Bay custom tipping.
100% silk, hand printed, and hand made.
