Pure Silk Oversized Self-Tie Bow Ties:
I started creating these oversized butterfly bowties for the real style enthusiasts at the beginning of summer and I'm glad I did! . Tom Ford Sells their satin version for $260 so I decided to make a more affordable version while keeping the highest quality possible, using pure silk.
This is a pure Italian silk I found and bought the rest of because the owner is going out of business. I have never seen silk like this before, and the finish is simply the best. Not overly shiny, and buttery. The main shade is an ice blue whihc you can see better in the photos with the pink necktie in the background. The floral is a steel blue which is a cross between grey and blue.
I did the reverse side of the bowtie in the matte side of the silk so you have the option to untie and retie it with the more matte side facing out, depending on your preference.
I interface these bowties so they are perfectly weighted, never too droopy or too stiff. The interfacing I use also make the fabric wrinkle free so they are very wearable without having to iron it every time. I REALLY tried to think of everything with this bowtie. It's supposed to be 'perfect' and well cared for <3
Neck band fabric is about 1" wide and the actual bow when tied measures about 4.5" wide (from side to side) and about 3.25" down (top to bottom)
This bowtie also fits almost all neck sizes because it is adjustable at the back! (about 14"-18" neck size) The strap left over sits under the collar to avoid using a bunchy loop or frustrating adjusting. These bowties adjust easily in seconds by just pulling. No fiddling.
***Handsome&Lace isn't a mass production company, nor do I scrimp on detail or quality. I truly love what I do and make sure each and every layer, detail or stitch is a representation of the integrity for quality in uniqueness. For real. From personally sourcing fabrics materials (not done online and I do not pay someone else to do this for me), to hand cutting from my handmade patterns, to ironing right here in our studio, and hand stitching tight invisible stitches. Each detail is well thought out and done in person and on the premises. I've been doing this for 9 years - full time- and look for ways to improve with every year that goes by.
