Introducing Philip Sparks LTD.

We're launching a new collection of limited edition clothing and accessories that will be available exclusively through the showroom shop and web store.

We decided to start small and the first LTD. accessory we're offering is this tie-it-yourself bow tie using the spring collection's neutral cotton plaid. It's styled here with our cream, long-sleeved dress shirt.
