We are selling these very smart adjustable cravats on behalf of an American colleague, Chris Spencer.
Chris says" I have developed and patented a pattern for a quick rigged cravat and stock that can increase in circumference from 15in to 18in without losing visual integrity. I’ve been working in professional theatre for over 20 years and in that time I have ordered, made, and rigged many cravats.
Each time we used cravats or stocks in a production, I would have to either add panels to increase the neck size or remake them completely. Two and a half years ago we were mounting a new production of A Christmas Carol and I decided to try out a new pattern I had been developing for a cravat that could adjust from a 15in neck to an 18in neck with very little difference in the final look. They worked great that first year but I knew the real test would be the next year when we changed up our cast. The second year they were still beautiful.
I have tweaked the pattern a bit since then, mostly to streamline the production of them and keep details and sizing reliably consistent. "
The nifty construction uses poppers or hooks at the back while the bow remains fixed so very useful for quick changes and continuity. The band is a fixed depth of 2in and the bow can be tied to suit.
Hand made in USA from lightweight white cotton.
