In 1919, a young English gentleman decided there was a need for a designer and distributor of silk neckwear; his name was Aubrey Brown.
Known to everyone as Buster from his army days, he set up business with Mr. Holliday and by 1926, Holliday & Brown Ltd had established a fine reputation in quality menswear markets of that time.
The company grew from strength to strength and the name Holliday & Brown quickly became synonymous with well designed, beautifully made ties and accessories. This reputation never faltered and The Holliday & Brown Tie was to be found in many of the world’s premier menswear retailers and department stores.
Only the finest pure silk ingredients were used to produce The Holliday & Brown Tie. Individually made by hand, each tie was expertly cut, slipped, stitched, labelled and pressed with great care by craftsmen. The skills were passed down over the years from tie maker to tie maker, maintaining a tradition that remained unchanged for 75 years.
