MOSCOW: When Sergei had a falling out with his partner over their joint print business 4 years ago, he found himself without a job.
The Siberian-native says it was probably a blessing in disguise.
With plenty of free time on his hands, he could pay more attention to his style…and when he couldn’t find a bow tie in Moscow he liked, he decided to design one himself.
Then he designed another, and another…finally turning it into a business that goes by the brand name ‘Engineer Garin’.
Sergei, who has added hats to his brand, says his work brings him satisfaction and hopes it soon brings street recognition.
