Louis Walton Ties, Catch ‘em While You Still Can…
I was sad to receive an email from Gregory Walton—the craftsman behind the Louis Walton ties and leather goods label—a couple of weeks ago letting me know he was taking a break from producing his handmade ties and leather accessories. I first met Greg at the vendor’s showcase at StyleForvm’s 10th Anniversary festivities a couple of years ago, and it’s always a delight to run into him at the local menswear-related events (he’s based in San Francisco).
Gregory makes all Louis Walton items himself by hand, and I can speak from experience to the fact that he’s a dedicated artisan, and that his ties and leather goods are very nice indeed. I don’t know the details behind Gregory’s decision, but I wish him well in whatever ventures lie ahead. For those of you who don’t already own one of Greg’s pieces, what’s still left on the site is all there’s gonna be…for the foreseeable future at least. I’m thinking about picking up a navy or forest green ‘garza piccola’ grenadine tie myself.
To nab something up before it’s too late, check in here for what limited remaining stock Greg has on hand.
