Wear a bit of history!
Robert and Audrey Talbott began to raise a family in Connecticut, first a daughter named Heather, then a son, Robert, Jr. It was an idyllic life for this upper-middle-class family. Robert continued to further his career at Bankers Security, becoming an executive vice-president, while Audrey raised the children and handcrafted silk neckties for her husband, occasionally producing them for friends as well at Christmas time.
The Talbotts decided to start their own business, taking advantage of Audrey’s ability to design appealing silk ties. For their target market they chose fashion-conscious, well-heeled men, willing and able to pay a premium price for exquisitely handcrafted silk neckwear. It was a narrow niche in deed, but a profitable one. A spare room in their home was set aside as a workshop, where Audrey began to design and sew bow ties, their only product for the first three years. Once a week Robert packed her output into the back of the station wagon and charmed haberdashery owners up and down the West Coast into carrying the ties, which retailed for $3.50 at a time when bow ties generally cost $2.50. Nevertheless, the ties found enough of a market to allow the Talbotts to expand the operations to a two-car garage adjacent to their home and begin hiring the wives of fishermen to sew the ties. Audrey began to travel the world in pursuit of the finest silks and colors that would make her neckwear distinctive. For the most part, however, she preferred to remain in the background and have her husband serve as the public face of the company, which also took his name, the Robert Talbott Tie Company.
