    They look really good! I rarely wear them myself though.

    Likewise, I rarely wear them. In fact, never have outside of black tie. I can picture me wearing the first and second ones though. Maybe it's what I need to mix things up!!

    Thanks!


    Nat, I think a bow tie here and there would suit your style very well. A burgundy one would go well with a grey blazer. And a light to mid grey one would go nicely with a navy blazer. And I think both burgundy and grey would go nicely with a light brown tweed jacket.
    I only wear them on special occasions (same goes for a tie), like weddings, fancy dinners, new years eve... and people seem to love them.

    The gold bow tie and the one with the botanical print were both made for weddings (the gold one on request from a colleague). The bow ties are all pre-tied. I would like to own a real tie-it-yourself one, as a trained eye will see the difference immediately. I'm pressuring my girlfriend to start making those.

    Once my girlfriend and I have the website up and running, I'll send you the link, and who knows, maybe we'll be sending you some custom made bows!
