City Gentleman

Since its foundation in the heart of the City of London in 1857, L A Smith has been synonymous with great ties, bow ties and hanks.

To this day, we offer a beautiful range for the city gentleman.


Our Plain Twill and Textured Silk Ties and our Knitted Ties provide solid, classic colours, augmented in recent years by our beautiful Luxury Silk Herringbones and our Woven Silk Polka Dots.  We also have a full range of Printed Silk Polka Dots.

For those seeking something a bit brighter, bolder or more sophisticated, there's a world of options in our Woven Silk Tie range, in our Woven Silk-Blend Tie range, and in our Printed Silk ties - as well as in our Liberty range.

There are also various looks in our Silk Tie and Hank Sets that work very well for the city gentleman - and some of the more classic items in our Country and Hobby Silk Tie range look great with a well-tailored dark suit.

Bow Ties

A beautiful, classic look for the city gentleman has always been our Printed Silk Polka Dot Bow Ties - many in both ready-tied and self-tie variants.

For something bolder, there's also our range of Silk Day Bows - again, in a mixture of ready-tied and self-tie.

Or for something softer and more contemporary, there's always a beautiful Knitted Bow Tie.

Top Pocket Hanks

Our range of hanks for the classic lounge suit of course start with White Cotton and our range of Plain Silk Hanks in a variety colours.

Our range of Plain Satin Hanks offers a whopping 55 shades from which to choose.

Finally, there's our ranges of designed hanks - in Polyester, Cotton, and Silk - and of course many of our Hanks Made With Liberty Fabric look great with a plain tie too.


Our scarf range offers plenty for the city gentleman, including:


Of course, L A Smith carries a range of supporting accessories too:
