“I don’t follow trends; I set them.” This statement is the basic tenet in which I believe and follow to always remain stylish. But what is style? How are certain pieces of attire deemed stylish? Style is defined as “a distinctive appearance or the design of a particular form.” Style is in essence setting one’s own fashion from their individual ideas. No successful designer or style architect has ever attempted to create successful ideas based off of others. Every successful designer has done “their own thing”, designing and creating ideas that were unique and even pushed the envelope from traditional normalcy. For many years, men’s fashion took a backseat all while great ideas and designs were born but quickly died. However those days have long since gone; now men’s fashion is revered and marveled like never before. Everywhere one may look, men’s fashion is displayed on all multimedia on every platform across the globe.
Hunter Todd Neckwear was founded in 2010, with a vision of creating a culture of well dressed men. They specialize in high quality neckties sourced locally in Los Angeles, CA. The focus is purely on superiority of product and customer experience.
The inspiration of Hunter Todd is much more broad than ties. At its core, however, HT was inspired from reading the story of Ralph Lauren and how he began his company by first selling neckties. “Neckties are simple, low cost, and we have the ability to cater to multiple colors and designs without too much hassle. That is important because we want to have a tie for everyone’s personality.” Furthermore, focusing on ties allows HT to start small in order to build up and eventually meet the broad vision. “Eventually we want to provide quality loafers, eyeglass frames, braces and even get into the cigar shop and whiskey bar industry. Another area we are pursuing through joint venture or acquisition is personal styling and bespoke suits. Ties are merely the entry point. What inspired me is simply knowing what I like and knowing that there are a lot of people that like what I like. The problem is most corporations cater to the masses. Currently its in to dress like a rapper or athlete so that is what corporations sell. We want to steer the ship. Dressing like HT is much more lucrative in both your daily life and in your career. That is what makes HT so easy to promote. It is not something that we sell it is something that we live. We just slap the HT logo on our lifestyle.”
