Finally his son Eric settles in Nice on the French Riviera in 1951. Third generation Alain and Walter now manage the business. Henry Bucks have been their exclusive customers in Australia for the past 25 years or so. Breuer's 60% silk 40% cotton Mogador woven rib hand slipped and finished ties are superb. Navy or red stripes.
