I don’t know how to tie a bowtie

All our bow ties are delivered pre-tied and come with press studs, allowing you to pop it on and off without even undoing it! However, they are all real bow ties, so if you know what you’re doing, feel free to tie and untie at will! 


What size are the bowties?

All our bow ties have snaps that fit most necks from 38 to 44cm.

If you are over 44 cm, you will have to order your custom knot by specifying the size of your neck just here 


Which shirt will go with my tie?

Regarding the color, we advise you to opt for a white or off-white shirt, which is always chic and easy to match. For bow ties, we advise paying attention to the collar – it must be small the line of the points should follow the edge of the bow tie. A tab or club collar shirt is a great option for the more daring! 

It’s a common misconception that bow ties are only worn with a cut-away collar, in particular with a tuxedo or dinner jacket. However today the bow tie can also be worn well with a casual shirt, so don’t be afraid to give it a go!


Do you have any other products?

Even though we initially became famous for our bow ties, we now offer a wide range of ties, suspenders, socks and children’s bow ties. We specialize in matching pocket squares and cufflinks for most references too.

For women, we offer beautiful headbands and bracelets, or pop in-store to check out our limited-edition knickers and panties!  


Do you sell fabric?

We offer fabric by the half meter or meter, subject to availability.
