Atkinsons Irish Poplin is a super-special 50/50 blend that we've stocked since day one: silk in the warp, merino wool in the weft, dyed in Scotland and woven in — where else? — Ireland. It makes a great alternative to a repp tie, with the same ribbed texture but a duller, slightly matte finish that makes it feel dressed-up when it needs to, but also knockaround when it doesn't. (It also resists wrinkles especially well.) This one's made just for us in our forever-go-to 8cm width: not too skinny, not too fat, and designed to sit in perfect harmony with both our jacket lapels and the length of our shirt collars.
