What makes a good Bow Tie Store?

A good Bow Tie store starts with a great selection of patterned bow ties. This is the bread and butter of any bow tie store and separates them from the ordinary and mundane sources of bow ties. Here at The Bow Tie Club we pride ourselves with over 400 bow ties designed in house and made in America.  The great designs are only part of the mix, you also need to offer a variety of shapes and types of bow ties.  We have 48 variations on most of our bow ties.  In terms of shapes, we offer diamond point, straight edge, and 5 sizes of butterfly bow ties!  We make them as pre-tied, clip-on and self tie bow ties in both longer and shorter necksizes.  All our shapes and sizes of bow tie are described in more detail on our Bow Tie Shape and Size page.  All this comprehensive detail on bow tie selection did not happen overnight, it is a culmination of 24 years making and selling bow ties that has taught us the bow tie customers needs and wants.

Have fun perusing our selection and please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions, kirk@bowtieclub.com

The Finest Bow Ties For Men Money Can Buy

Most bow ties for men are sold by two types of businesses, either large neckwear manufacturers who make bow ties from silks designed for long ties or very small crafters who use cloth from their local fabric shop.  Neither option is best for the bow tie wearer since the patterns were never intended for a bow tie in the first place.  

We are one of only a handful of bow tie design manufacturers.  This means we not only manufacture the bow ties but we design them as well.  When you peruse our website you can be confident that all our designs were intended for the shape and size of a bow tie, not a design originally made for a long tie or pillow or bed sheets or wallpaper!  That is a scary thought that one day you may walk into a room and your bow tie matches the wallpaper!  

Each one of our designs is conceived with shirts, suits and sportcoats in mind.  The colors, size of pattern and overall pairability is paramount in every creation.  This is why The Bow Tie Club is your one stop bow tie shop for any wardrobe additions, gifts or for that first time bow tie wearer who has just learned to tie a bow tie!  

Hope you enjoy perusing our bow ties for men or now more and more women are joining the bow tie revolution!

Simply Color Block

Color Block Mondrian Matisse Bow Ties

It all starts with the black outline that creates the framework for the solid blocks of color. This simple yet beautiful color block design gives maximum impact for the size and shape of a bow tie. While out “field testing” the Mondrian yesterday I received a multitude of great comments. One person remarked on how colorful the bow tie was, another said that the bow tie went well with my dark grey suit and white shirt. Each person liked the bow tie for different reasons but the key takeaway is that they noticed it which then triggered the nice comments! 
 
It maybe a small sample, but I think there is an excellent chance you will notice an uptick in positive comments wearing these color block bow ties as well!

Elephants and the Tower of London

Elephants Bow Ties

 Elephants have always been awe inspiring animals and our set of 4 Indian elephant bow ties are no exception. Back in 1235 King Louis IX of France gave King Henry III an elephant from the crusades as a gift and it was kept at the Tower of London for public display. This was one of many animals the King received as gifts, but the Elephant was special since most people had never seen one before. Previously pictures depicted the elephant as a horse type creature with a long trunk! Unfortunately, the elephant did not come with feeding instructions and it was deemed appropriate to supplement the beast with a gallon of red wine everyday for the health of the animal. Alas, the elephant was drunk and happy but did not live very long. Even worse, nothing was learned from his demise and elephants housed at the tower kept receiving a daily ration of wine for the next 200 years!


Our elephant bow ties will never have to worry about red wine getting anywhere near them since spilling on a bow tie is almost impossible!

What makes a quality pre-tied bow tie?

bowtieclub.com pre-tied bow ties

Most pre-tied bow ties you can spot a mile away!  You take one look and instantly know that the person wearing the bow tie never tied it themselves let alone any human!  The reason is that these are machine made bow ties where the knot is not real, it's just a piece of fabric wrapped around the tie to look like a knot.  Our pre-tied bow ties are actual self-tie bow ties that we individually hand knot and then our seamstresses permanently lock tight with an invisible stitch.  This way even an expert bowtier would not be able to tell whether you tied it or knot! After making sure your bow tie sports a real knot the second mark of a well made pre-tied is a quality hook and clasp to attach the neckband.  Our clasp has the look and feel of fine jewelry and is second to none when it comes to bow ties!

Why would anyone want to wear a pre-tied bow tie that is instantly recognizable as one?  Buy a quality bow tie that is hand knotted with a jewelry quality buckle and clasp.  In addition make sure it is American made and you will be able to arrive at any occasion with confidence and pride!

Herringbone Bow Ties Work So Well!

Why has the classic herringbone pattern stood the test of time so well? Its origin dates back to at least 500 bc when the romans used the pattern in their extensive road system. 2,500 years later the herringbone is more popular than ever! The reasons are many, but in terms of clothing the pattern is successful due to its simplicity and movement. The simple design makes it a "go with everything" type of bow tie and the zig zag creates movement that catches the eye. The sharp bi-tonal color combinations of our 4 herringbone bow ties work exceedingly well with almost any suit and shirt.

Sandra Boynton Bow Tie Collection

I have been selling bow ties for over 21 years and Sandra Boynton is easily the most significant person to ever put her name on a bow tie. Her books have sold over 65 million copies, her greeting cards over 500 million and also add 3 gold record albums to her name! She has brought smiles to literally billions of people who have seen her work and now we are incredibly privileged to have her fun loving and adorable characters grace our bow ties! The characters in her illustrations connect with people in a profound way. Boynton reminds us that the world is full of good even when it can seem so gloomy.

The Sandra Boynton Bow Tie Collection was designed by Sandra Boynton herself! We gave her the outline of a bow tie and left the rest up to her creative imagination! The finished product is truly a piece of art and bears her signature to let you know you have an authentic Boynton bow tie!

Being a world renowned children's author and illustrator, we had to have kids bow ties as well, so all designs are available for kids in pre-tied or clip-on bows. Pair a Sandra Boynton Kids Bow Tie up with an adult bow tie and you have a fantastic father/son gift set perfect for a birthday or any special occasion.

What makes a great Bow Tie?

People ask me all the time,  what makes a quality bow tie?  One simple way is to know who made it and where it was made.  Always buy from a quality company that either makes the bow ties themselves or at the very least oversees their production.  Many bow tie sellers have their bow ties made in China.  The problem is lack of oversight, how can you possibly tell if the seamstress cut the lining correctly or left just the right amount of border to the perimeter of the bow tie.  If you are not there to supervise the construction you really have no idea.  We not only make, but also design our bow ties.  The patterns are made to fit the size and shape of a bow and this care and attention to the product shines through year after year.  We are now entering our 24th year of making, designing and selling bow ties and we never stop learning our craft.  I hope you enjoy wearing these bow ties as much as we have enjoyed designing and making them!
