About the directors...

Cravat Club Director Julian Spencer-Smith Julian, a burgeoning entrepreneur and avid cravat wearer, came up with the idea of Cravat Club. He had always been a fan of cravats but had noticed there was a serious lack of choice, as most cravats he found online and in stores had a tendency to either have very uninspiring patterns, or were made cheaply abroad which lacked quality. So he was determined to create exceptional quality silk cravats all handcrafted in the UK in more interesting patterns and colours.

Jenny returned to the UK after living in Japan for 5 years, and stumbled upon Julian’s business venture. Intrigued by the idea of bringing the cravat back into fashion, she was eager to get involved and help to develop Cravat Club as a brand. Menswear was something she was interested in, and like many women, was a strong advocate of men who dress well and take care of their appearance.

Jenny was keen to ensure Cravat Club’s identity would avert the outdated undertones that cravats traditionally had, and a more contemporary image would be ideal for today’s market to attract a wider audience, not just for the more mature gentleman! So she gave Cravat Club an edgier feel and had an array of designs made up to appeal to men of all ages.

With a plethora of designs available, ranging from traditional to contemporary patterns, to classic designs with a twist - there’s something for even the most discerning gentleman.

Since starting in 2014, they have been growing from strength to strength; have vastly expanded their product range, are selling to over 50 countries spanning across 6 continents, and they have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers on the quality and presentation of their products.

Cravat Club Director Jenny Meguro Cravat Club has also introduced woven and printed silk neckties, pocket squares and printed silk evening scarves to their collection, which make a perfect accompaniment for any outfit for the style-conscious chap.

Jenny says, “I would love to see more men who haven’t tried a cravat before take the plunge and go for it, they would be surprised how comfortable it is to wear, and paired with the right outfit, how stylish it looks. You don’t have to make a huge statement wearing a cravat; you can show as little or as much as you like depending on how you tie and position it under your shirt, there are a variety of ways you can wear it for different occasions, and you can dress it up or down.”
