Margarita García, Owner/Designer of Speak Louder
As I became more interested in menswear I began designing and making my own unique ties for the modern man.
I am an architect by profession and the Speak-Louder adventure began while I was writing my thesis on architecture & fashion and researching Adolf Loos’ book “Why a man should be well-dressed
.” I began to recognize what men’s fashion and modern architecture have in common. It may sound a bit pretentious but it’s true! As I became more interested in menswear I began designing and making my own unique ties for the modern man. Speak-Louder was born by chance but now it has become an exciting part of my life.

My contribution to men’s fashion is to offer a quality and stylish garment that is simple and functional yet not the least bit boring. I pay the utmost attention to the construction of each garment. I design pieces that can be dressed up or down, that have the perfect combination of functionality and edginess. They are a modern twist on the traditional concept of the tie. The tie is a sober element by itself, so the way you wear it, the texture & the color are the keys to making it something different and fun. So you choose, what do you want out of your tie?
I am a huge fan of art & architecture and this is reflected in my designs.
Looking for the prefect fabric is part of the process and I often draw my inspiration from people I admire. I am a huge fan of art & architecture and this is reflected in my designs. Each of my pieces are designed with these inspirations in mind or simply inspired by someone that I think would look great in it – the next step is asking him to wear it.
