The largest manufacturer of handmade neckties in England, Drake’s was founded in 1977, but with humble beginnings. The first Drake’s collection did not even contain neckties—it was comprised of only luxury men’s scarves. But that would soon change as Drake’s quickly parlayed its success into manufacturing ties and pocket squares. The rest is now history. Over the years, Drake’s has become one of the world’s most respected names in menswear and is one of the privileged few to have received both the Queen's Award for Export and the UK Fashion Export Gold Award for Outstanding Export Achievement.
