Hemp Ties by Dolbeau

It really seems as of late our friends in the Great White North, aka Canada, have been producing some of the most talked about menswear brands like Frank & Oak, Indochino and now Dolbeau. Recently, I stumbled upon Dolbeau specifically because I was in the market for a square-end neck tie (not of the knit variety). Not limited just to neck ties, Dolbeau carries bowties, pocket rounds, scarves, bracelet and lapel pins.

These days, style isn’t the only driving factor when guys are looking for pieces to add to their wardrobe. Quality is often the number one factor that will drive a guy to purchase anything. Dolbeau almost makes it their mission statement that quality is key over quantity in regard to their products. Dolbeau does not mass produce their items (specifically their ties). All of their ties are handmade (locally in Montreal, Canada) in limited quantities, even hand-making them when you ordered.

Take a look the Shop section of the Dolbeau site. You’ll see an array of ties in funky, crazy and just cool-ass patterns that really set Dolbeau apart from other specialty brands.

Product Review: IMO (in my opinion):

  • The fact that Dolbeau has injected a bit of fun into their ties in terms of style and patterns is refreshing.
  • These hemp ties are the perfect material for warmer weather months (light fabric & durable)
  • The square end ties remind me of the ties you will often see in the UK or Italy that are bit more unique than the traditional 7-fold pointed ties.
  • The fabric is high quality from Japan (from one of the best known Japan Hemp producers (Japan Blue/Collect Co.)
  • The texture of these hemp ties make them versatile enough to be worn with a suit or denim
  • Their 3 distinct features: Orange Slip Stitch, Orange Bar Tack & Square Tip End
  • Dolbeau offers pieces with personality, which I really enjoy.

    I like how these ties work with the suits, would you recommend the suit and tie for a college student trying to improve his style

      Hi Wiliam,

      I wouldnt say go all the way in with a suit and tie as a college guy, but, rock the shirt, tie blazer and jeans. Or, suit pants button up and a cardigan. Save the full suit for a date function or internship interview.

    Great find Sabir! You should do a feature on The Cordial Churchman ties handmade in my home state of SC. They even do custom neckties and bowties in whatever width and/or fabric you want for around $40. Great quality and made in the USA!
