Waterstones Says

A keen collector of nifty neckwear from a young age, Stephen Fry treats readers to a selection of truly tremendous ties alongside a bevy of unforgettable anecdotes and full-colour photographs.

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here

A witty, illustrated ode to Stephen Fry's decades-long obsession with a man's most trusted accessory - the tie.

By the time he was fifteen, Stephen Fry owned more than forty ties. Inherited initially from a grandfather, matters turned more serious when he could afford to buy them brand spanking new.

Stephen's collection now numbers well into the hundreds. And each tie - whether floral, fluorescent, football themed; striped or spotty, outrageous or simply debonair - tells a story. A tale of the garment itself - the shops, makers and designers - as well as of Stephen, his reasons for choosing it, whether an
occasion or just a whim.

Inspired by Stephen's hugely popular Instagram posts, this book will feature beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations and photographs to celebrate his expansive collection of man's greatest asset: the Tie, in all its sophisticated glory.

“Superb!”

“Had me in knots ...”

A great stocking filler and the author goes to the trouble of actually signing copies which is rather refreshing. My only sadness is she who must be obeyed supervised a culling of my old ties a few months back, this... More

“Wonderful!”

Wonderfully British, touchingly intimate, and far more fascinating than it sounds!
