DEMAND INSPIRES A MANUFACTURING BUSINESS
In 1993, Dick Fowlkes founded Peter-Blair as a retail store in Richmond, Virginia with the aim of providing “classic clothing with a twist”. He discovered a gap in his merchandise, wanting neckties that were comparable to elegant Italian neckwear, but bold in color, design and wittiness. Dick opened Peter-Blair Accessories in 2003, separate from the storefront, to manufacture ties to fill that gap.
Today, Peter-Blair Accessories sells to over 250 men’s boutiques and online stores around the world. We offer a unique array of woven and printed neckwear, including motifs and geometrics. Kate Ackerly, the company’s Vice President, continues to hand draw all of our designs which offers a unique aspect to the products in an increased digital world. Peter-Blair Accessories ties are proudly handmade in the USA, and all products are made with the highest quality materials, including 100% silk, wool, cotton and linen. In every item produced, Peter-Blair Accessories showcases its commitment to quality and design.
As our company continues to survey men’s current fashions, we plan to add product to complement their neckwear. We strive to maintain a classic, timeless look that will serve generations of men to come!
