Finding bow ties of good quality is much harder than finding good neckties, so we attended to the matter. Of course they are self-tied and adjustable from collar size 37-46 (or 14.5-18 in inches). All of our bow ties are diamond tipped (asymmetrical, pointy ends) since we think this shape lends itself best to the slightly eccentric character of bow ties.
In the quiet hills of the British countryside lies the traditional heart of English screen printing: Macclesfield. Once home to numerous manufactories that produced the inimitable screen-printed silk and wool connoisseurs love so dearly, today there are only two left that produce what internationally became known as “British Neats”. But the quality that comes out of these traditional places is still unparalleled: nothing beats the depth and character of hand-printed fabrics. The time-consuming printing process requires a lot of experience to get right, as the color reacts after printing with oxygen and forms the final shade: a delicate process, requiring a delicate hand. The result is a lush, rich, almost 3D-like effect we just love.
