Maxim, Never Be Afraid Of Black Tie Again.... A Grosgrain And Silk Satin 'Reverse Duo' Bow Tie From Le Noeud Papillon

You are probably wondering why we are doing another post about reverse duo bow ties.... And I could tell you a big long story about the positives of getting two bow ties in one, but that might bore you. So let me be brief. Until now we have done mostly the reverse duos in order to make it possible to tie yourself our velvet bow ties. But it struck me recently, about the same time we received a fresh shipment of grosgrain, that there are basically two types of facings that a tuxedo comes with. Either a grosgrain silk or else a satin silk. These are the most prevalent finishes for a tuxedo across nearly every major brand in the world. But, as we all do from time to time, we decide one day to get a new tuxedo and it has the opposite silk facing we had previously to the last tuxedo we purchased. Enter Maxim. Maxim is the perfect bow tie to hold for years and hand over to your children or their children. Maxim is half grosgrain silk, half satin silk. It can be tied to reveal the half centre knot, or it can be tied flat so you can't see the contrast at all. It's all up to you, but it gives you the versatility to go shopping for a new tuxedo knowing that you have your bow tie covered no matter what the outcome. Shop it now:
