Eponymous to the famous gentleman, we asked a silk maker to pull out their archive a genuine 'Churchill Spot'. This followed a request for "a tie and one or maybe two bow ties" from a direct descendant. Its existence was discussed over a shirt purchase as the gentleman was sporting one such tie that he had inherited - it seemed an irresistible opportunity.
Rich, dark navy, with a little further spacing between spots than the classic polka, this is elegant and timeless. In a subtle way, it stands out from the standard medium spot ties as a sartorial showstopper.
