Titanic Ties

We were recently tasked to develop a new silk tie as part of the major Titanic Ship centenary commemoration. The neckties are based on a registered tartan conceived to represent colours reflecting the Titanic's short history.

While ultimately at the centre of a tragedy, this ship represented a huge and impressive feat of engineering. It remains a source of pride, and is going to have a permanent museum opening soon close to the dry dock where it was built in Belfast.

190 Years of Atkinsons Royal Irish Poplin

This year has seen our 190th year of business. We have a rich and interesting heritage, and one of which we are proud. As the year draws to a close we are looking forward to taking Atkinsons to the next anniversary [200 years!!].

Ties remain our key focus, and in addition to silk foulard and silk jacquard tie developments, Irish Poplin ties and wool ties in narrower profiles with their matt aspect resonate particularly well for next Autumn/Winter trends.

The other big product news is the launch of an Atkinsons cap collection for 2012. Using familiar classic cloths, we are going to offer a core group of unmistakably British/Irish wools. Expect some pictures and a proper online appearance by February.

To our customers we offer our thanks for your support over so many years, and we hope to be of service in the years to come.
