The Prince of Wales check, also known as glen check or glen plaid, Esterhazy or Glen Urquhart, was not invented by the Duke of Windsor but he wore it with such great elegance that it was quickly named after him.

Although the Duke would often wear in black and white, there are many other color combinations available and Prince of Wales check is woven from red and white silk in a plain weave with tiny freckles of black creating a stunning tie.

What makes this Prince of Wales Check tie so special?

Prince of Wales Check Tie Style Tips

Most modern ties have thick interlinings and only allow for thick, bulky tie knots. With Fort Belvedere ties, you need not be limited to only one shape. Elegant gentlemen such as Prince Charles, or John F. Kennedy preferred worn smaller, elegant four-in-hand tie knots. Fort Belvedere allows you to tie small, regular and big tie knots! Choose the correct size tie for your stature for small and normal size tie knots, or chose the next longer tie for Balthus or double Windsor knots.

Due to its characteristic pattern and burgundy color combination, the weave of this tie had to be simple to guarantee a proper overall look. This tie looks stunning with navy, black, grey, brown, green... It also pairs well with solids, pinstripes and particularly chalks stripes. Make sure to avoid combining it with small suit patterns such as nailhead, pinpoint of glen plaid because these patterns are too similar to the tie and will clash.

How to Store This Tie

Begin by untying the knot it in the opposite way you tied it; never store ties knotted! Roll it up for a day to allow the wrinkles to relax, and then hang on a tie rack in your closet.
