Peter Lee is the Co-Founder of Harding & Wilson, a Portland-based brand that creates bow and neck ties from materials sourced in the Pacific Northwest. Whether it is the contrast stitching or the hand-stamped packaging, each tie is handcrafted with attention to detail. Peter and his business partner, Alex Nguyen, blend turn-of-the-century style with their Northwest influence to create a product that can be worn casually or dressed up and that ideally will outlive its original owner being passed along through the generations. P.S.
