Nothing compares to putting on a clean, crisp shirt, It’s not just about buying a small, medium or large, there are a lot of details to get right from the collar to the cuffs to the cut of the torso.

30 - Bow tie by Brendan Joseph

Distilling precious moments and beautiful places, Brendan Joseph makes each scarf, shawl & bow-tie by hand in Ireland, the home of his inspiration, working in silk, cashmere and linen. The colours in each scarf are the result of an innovative design methodology by which Brendan draws his inspiration directly from scenes and sources in the environment around him – the vibrant city of Dublin and the beautiful natural landscapes of Ireland. Brendan’s passion for colour, pattern, quality and craftsmanship is clear in his work as he explores, distils and translates what he sees in the world around him into his handmade scarves. Although the colours in his designs are drawn purely from nature, they bring out the unusual and the unnoticed - the intensely vibrant lichen on warm grey rocks by the soft- blue sea at Sandymount Strand, or the speckled pink and blue of the Georgian and Victorian architecture in the area around his studio.

Insider Trading: Like it, want it, covet it: Ruth O’Connor is our style insider.

This Killiney Hill scarf by men’s accessories company Brendan Joseph (recent recipient of a highly commended award at Showcase) echoes the colour of the gorse and heather to be found on the Hill itself.

Each scarf is woven in silk – the quality of the fabric has to be touched to be believed – using a complex weaving technique. The range includes a variety of colourways, and bow ties made in a similar fashion. €198.
