Christylez Bacon has been coming our way for some time now to build out his collection of our original Ginger Root Ascots. A few weeks back he gave us a call and put in his order for an extra special custom Ascot for his album release show February 22nd, and of course I was on board! He wanted a black satin tie with white piping along the bottom edge.


I searched through our fabric and found a black satin from the hem scrap of a dress, and white vintage scrap fabric, that when turned to the wrong, non shiny, side would be a perfect accent.


Next thing you know, I am at Christylez’s concert seeing him rock his new Ascot on stage! If you have not seem this man perform I would highly recommend it–He knows how to put on a show!!



Would you like us to make you a custom Ascot? Generally we recycle old ties into these designs, so let us know if you find a tie that would make a perfect Ascot! Give us a call to schedule an appointment at (202)567-7668 or email us at and we can help!

*Tailoring by appointment only, closed Wednesdays and Sundays.”
