Patrick McMurray

At Patrick McMurray’s, we collaborate with a community of designers from all over the world to create a wide range of styles, designed with the individual in mind. The ties are specifically designed to capture a large market audience including the conservative and the flamboyant. The quality of each tie is evident in the combination of fabric used, from pure silk, silk and wool and silk and cotton blends using the finest of materials to deliver world class ties. Each tie is handmade in Australia on printed and woven fabrics, capturing both classical and cultural elements that make Patrick McMurray ties different from any other designer brand. The fusion of fabrics used, the carefully selected designs, the vibrancy of colours are unique in every tie.
