Dedicated to infusing classic men’s style into activewear, Activist Eyewear has recently partnered with Alfred Julius to produce a run of 50 bow tie and handkerchief pairings made from durable, unexpected materials—bow ties are constructed from nylon ripstop with an antique bronze rivet and the handkerchief is made with heavyweight microfiber to double as a handy lens cloth.
Activist Eyewear, features limited runs of vintage designs elevated with high-grade materials and their signature Split Fit temples for comfort and stability. Alfred Julius specializes in outfitting well-heeled men with bowties cut from uncommon fabrics. The ripstop nylon in this collaboration is but another experiment in a line that includes ties made from cotton kente cloth, cashmere, selvedge denim and perforated leather.
Both the bow tie and handkerchief were made with durability and quick-dry capability in mind, guaranteeing functionality without sacrificing looks. The pair come packaged in Activist’s wax canvas glasses case that is bound in an individually numbered sleeve.
The set is available for purchase through the Activist online shop.
