What kind of fit do your ties have?
A perfect fit for any neck size! We use adjustable sliders that allow for neck/collar sizes 14.5 inches to 18 inches (~37 cm to ~45 cm). Let us know if you would prefer a shorter or longer tie. We can accommodate you with no problem.
What are your choices for fittings?
1. STANDARD ADJUSTABLE SLIDERS: Our standard bow tie is crafted with high-end cast metal & plated fittings with smooth edges (so, your bow tie must be retied each time you wear it) which is the gentleman’s traditional choice.
2. HOOK & EYE: We also provide a separable, yet fully adjustable bow tie crafted with high-end cast metal & plated ‘hook & eye’ fittings. At checkout, please state your request in the field “Note from Buyer”: “HOOK & EYE."
3. FIXED LENGTH: You can order your new bow tie custom fitted to your collar size. At checkout please state your request in the field “Note from Buyer”: “NO HARDWARE” and include your preferred overall length, for example: “34 inches” or "86 cm."
How should I measure for my best fit?
Care instructionsAfter use, refresh your tie with a gentle pass of a steam iron, preferably with a cloth over the tie itself. A cotton t-shirt is perfect for this. For stained or misshapen ties, a professional dry clean may be necessary.
Gift wrapping and packaging
How are the ties shipped/packaged?
All bow ties are packaged inside a pillow box and wrapped with raw hemp cord. Your package will include an instructional Post Card (which can be filled out and used as a gift card for presents) and a cotton 'dust bag' to store and protect your new tie.
The ties are shipped inside white bubble envelopes to protect them during shipping. Multiple orders may be combined into a box.
Will my tie look exactly like the one in the photo?
We try to represent the cloth textures and colors as best we can, so please keep in mind that color and resolution settings may vary from monitor to monitor--with some variance. Also, since your bespoke bow tie is cut from a different place on the bolt, it may appear a bit different than in the photos.
Do you offer any other options besides wool for interlining?
If requested--or where best suited--we use an exceptional pure cotton cloth interlining imported from a Dutch mill, specifically woven for the bow tie trade.
What kind of interlining fabric do you use?
All of our bow ties are crafted with natural fabrics including this lightweight 100% springy wool that we use as the lining to complement the weight and drape of the outer fabric without competing with it.
All fabrics (including the interlining) are cut precisely on the bias (cross grain) to assure durability & long life. This means that the bow tie lays flat when worn, and stays generally wrinkle-free; and will not lose its shape after extended wear.
