"I knew a lot of people were making neckties as a gateway drug into fashion and that I would have to do something truly different to set myself apart," Brooklyn-based designer Glendon Breismeister says regarding his lifelong passion for neckwear and his inaugural collection. He achieved his goal of a luxurious, whimsical and wearable neckwear line by working with some of the best mills in Europe to create original fabrics exclusively for Glendon Lambert. He brought yards of silk, virgin wool, linen and cotton back to Brooklyn to be handmade using the traditional four-fold slip-stitch construction technique. The final product has a Bohemia-Americana feel that lends itself well to a suit in the office or jeans at dinner. Glendon said, "One of my goals with this line was to create fabrics with established European mills and marry them with the quality of handmade American manufacturing. I am pleased we have achieved that goal and thrilled to present my distinctive collection on Ahalife."
