Kind Words From A Polish Customer In Warsaw

Ah, I own several bows from Drakes and Tom Ford, but the Le Noeud Papillon 'Cesar' is my new favourite to tell you the truth. Its shape and thickness make for a really wonderful bowtie. All butterflies should learn from this one, that's for sure. I hope your diamond points are equally good, you've really put the bar high with this one!

What a fantastic bow tie collection the old boys had!

A Happy Bespoke Customer From Montreal

Hello Le Noeud Papillon, hope you are well! The two bow ties made it through last Thursday (Oct. 21) and I am really very pleased. The special order white piping is superbly executed and matches a pocketsquare I already have as if they had come as a set, beautiful!!!

Thanks again to you and your team, you have another satisfied customer on your hands. All the best,

Sparks flew but who should get the credit?

I have heard that there is a war of words going on about Patrick Johnson's site and MJ Bale ripping it off. It doesn't really concern me only to say that I received an email from a fan of my bow ties in Paris. He was a young tailor. He had this to say:

Scavini Says: Hello, I'm a young tailor in Paris, who wear bow tie all the time outdoor (never a 'simple' tie) and I love your models. May be, I notice a lack of rep tie modes, but...

Interesting brand, I add you too to my blog:



Looking at his site I felt it was 'deja vu' for my little French friend. For I had seen a similar thing done at Patrick Johnson not that long ago:

The trouble with the net age is that everything flows so quickly that its hard to grasp who came up with what. I firmly believed I was bringing the bow tie back - but I dare say, since I started two years ago, it seems that the web has been flooded with bow tie makers putting up their wares on the web, especially ones in the United States, that would claim that they were making bow ties since Abraham Lincoln.

I will leave it at that. I wish them every success.

A happy customer from Perth, Western Australia.

Dear Le Noeud Papillon,

I received my bow tie in the mail yesterday. It is awesome! I have a couple of bow ties that I recently bought from Pierrepont Hicks in the US; they are also excellent, but quite different from this Le Noeud Papillon number. The quality of the silk in your product - I am no expert, but I am going by the heft and luster, in the absence of any other frame of reference - is fantastic, and the resulting bow looks proper. I would offer the observation that your bow is somewhat larger in size than the other bows I have in my possession, which I like - I also like how the width of the tie creates a rather hefty knot in the middle, much more proportionate with the rest of the tie than any other bow tie I have ever seen. In short, I have become an instant fan!

Thanks again,
Michael Burton

Gaudi's Family

Gaudi's Family was inspired by the stained glass windows which appear in Gaudi's Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain. The stained glass windows, which seem so advanced in design for their time, depict families of three over what seems to be three generations which then leads to the 3 circles which is symbolism for the Holy Trinity.
