Old College Ties began from a simple wish by founder Madeleine Johnson to offer handmade and Italian-styled ties to the Cambridge community. Harvard Student Agencies (HSA) acquired Old College Ties in the year of 2016, and with it acquired the founder’s aspirations as well.

HSA is currently the sole proprietor of the ties and the old school tie tradition has expanded from its original roots. Old College Ties now offers these classy and vintage ties to the Harvard community and beyond, allowing students to capture their unforgettable memories and extraordinary life moments through their customized clothing.
