Who we are is the premier innovator in the bow tie world.

Chuck Blackburn founded the, the, as well as The

Chuck authered the "essential book" on bow ties, 

Years ago, Chuck was a manufacturers' rep of fine men's neckwear

to most of the best specialty shops in the US. As a lifelong fan

of bow ties, Chuck felt he knew why bow tie wearers love bow ties.

Bow ties make a  positive statement of style, intelligence, and 

individuality...when worn properly. Unlike long ties, bow ties serve a 

useful purpose and function. And, bow ties are not a slave to the fickle

fashion whimsies (wide-narrow-narrower-wider). Bow ties last longer 

and are most becoming when they fit ones eyesockets (approx. 2"x4.5")

Long ties can't provide what bow ties can. So, gentlemen (and their

spouses) gotta know how to buy, tie, and wear bow ties!

Don't pre-tied bow ties look fake, phony, and fool no one?? (editor's opinion)

All this and more are in the BowTie Bible ($25). a hilarious, edifying

hardcover, gold leaf, illustrated, easy read, and a great gift on any

occasion. A must for the interested, or those just curious about what they

don't know; they don't know.

These are 3-part bow ties with skinny G-hooks on both ends of the silk grosgrain sizing ribbon designed to layflat under collar backwithout slipping, stretching, bulging, or fraying as most bow ties are prone to do over time. We hand-make all bow ties(USA)to be no taller than a man’s eye-sockets(eyebrow to cheekbone) apx.2 1/8” . If you ask a circus clown why clownswear bow ties bigger than their faces they will, without pausing, reply “because, itmakesyou look like a CLOWN” . We also offer longer free sizingribbonsfor necks larger than 17 ½ at no extra charge. (Links showing simple instructions for altering variations (looks) are available) . The perfect measurement for a properly sized bow tie is 2 x neck size + 3 inches. That makes the horizontal measurement about 4 ½ “across. That’s about the width of the eye-sockets.
