Joe Doucet x Thursday Finest: Perfect Fitting Ties Made On-Demand

Designer Joe Doucet partnered with Thursday Finest on a tie collection that was designed specifically to take advantage of 3D knitting. Each tie from the capsule Joe Doucet x Thursday Finest collection is made-to-order in the granular size that fits your height. On top of that, you get to choose from either their 5 designer-recommended color ways, or in any combination of Thursday Finest’s 31 colors.


The design features a single line that hits across the chest that is a playful nod to the tie bar. Since the tie bar is supposed to fall between the 2nd and 3rd button of a dress shirt, the beauty of Thursday Finest’s technology is that when you go to order your tie, you enter your height and knot style, and the tie is then printed to fit you perfectly.


Whenever an order is placed, a Japanese knitting machine is called to action manufacturing, packaging, and shipping your tie in under an hour. By eliminating the traditional bulk-order manufacturing process that normally takes place, they’re able to knit ties at competitive prices in their micro factory in Brooklyn.


A portion of the proceeds of the Joe Doucet x Thursday Finest collection will go to Career Gear, an organization that helps provide job-specific clothing for men in need.
