The Gift That Keeps On Giving - A Bow Tie Is Something That Can Be Passed On For Generations If You Care For It Correctly


Very few of our customers ever go to our HOW TO CARE PAGE of our website and subsequently get frustrated when, after a few wears, especially with a grating clear shaven face, they start to get frays on the edges of the bow ties. It can be remedied with fingers scissors and a small bic lighter in less than two minutes but for those without finger scissors and who don't smoke, this can often cause alarm before an event. However, coupled with dry cleaning occasionally and pressing the silk correctly with cloth between so that the silk doesn't get scolded, your bow tie, cared for, might last more than two generations. And that's not a joke. There are collections of bow ties from men who wore them in the 1920's that form parts of estate auctions that still look beautiful today albeit with a certain vintage feel for them. It is our job to make the best bow ties, but it is the responsibility of the customer to maintain them. So, if you haven't thought about some noeud papillon TLC lately, perhaps, in the depth of an Australian winter, you can sit by the fire and prune your bow ties one lazy Saturday afternoon.
