In 1994, Lee Allison got the crazy idea that he wanted to create his own line of neckties. The Lee Allison Company was officially launched from a Chicago brownstone in the spring of 1995. From the beginning, Lee Allison neckties (or four-in-hands as he prefers to call them) were always a little bit different, whimsical but sophisticated, and of the highest quality. The difference was that Lee actually designed his own fabric rather than simply buy what the silk mills had for sale.
Over time, the offerings have grown to include bowties, cummerbund sets, formal vests, pocket squares, the occasional pillow, and suspenders (braces, for you Anglophiles). And in 2002, Lee Allison Company added a line of fine cotton dress shirts, its first non-silk offering. The Bucktown-based company also creates custom-made shirts, suits, sport jackets and tuxedos for a small but discerning clientele.
