Yellow and purple, while complementary colors that pair perfectly with each, do not get a lot of use in menswear. You’re more likely to see navy unless you’re a fan of LSU or the Lakers. And the purple side of the equation is very rarely associated with fall. Yet the Bancroft Bow Tie from The Cordial Churchman will have you questioning all of these practices.
The Bancroft is made from cotton fabric sourced from the world-renowned Liberty of London. Violet and mustard color the bow tie’s floral pattern, two toned down, warmer variations on the colors that fit perfectly with the fall landscape. The floral pattern gives it enough versatility to be worn in early spring as well. It’s a small start but it’s a step on the right path towards more use of purple and yellow.
