If you read our blog from time to time ( then you would know that at Christmas time last year we created a made-to-order single piece bow tie in grosgrain silk for Simon Crompton of Permanent Style. Simon is one of the many new voices launched within the blogging sphere over the last 5 years and is Savile Row’s most esteemed ‘new media’ writer. Simon requested us to make him a single piece bow tie made from an Italian grosgrain we source from one particular mill which offers a better grosgrain than the rest.

Using Simon’s collar size we estimated the length required and cut him a batwing bow tie. Single piece bow ties are something we offer as a custom service because every shape we offer requires a unique length for a single piece equivalent. The length required for a batwing bow, for example, will differ to that of a diamond point. The length needed for a grosgrain, will differ from a satin, which will differ from a Marcella cotton, which will differ from a mogador. So, it is the last remaining item which truly must be made from scratch, cut by hand and then sewn by machine and hand. And you need to keep an eye on it to make sure the cutter and the seamstress both know what is going on, otherwise you have to start all over again.
