This little-known, colorful, and traditional stock tie is seen worn by field members in many of the old hunting prints and books plates by eighteenth-century artists and authors. Although it went out of common use early in the last century, it is still worn by those few traditionalists who have the style to carry it off!
During the informal season, the blue birdseye stock tie looks smashing under tweed coats and is also worn by staff members under scarlet coats. During the formal season, it may be worn by field members and Masters under formal coats—both scarlet and blue.*
While it won’t replace the classic look of the white stock tie, we think it will be great fun to wear on occasion. We thought it deserved to be resurrected from the tack trunk of foxhunting history and find its place in the hunting field once again.
Foxhunting Life Blue Birdseye Stock Ties are available in one-hundred-percent cotton, either four-fold or shaped-and-slotted. Order form below.
*Disclaimer: Although the blue birdseye stock tie is a centuries-old article of foxhunting attire, your Master always has the final say as to what is or is not acceptable in your own hunting field during the formal season!
