Looking for a wider/bigger silver bow tie

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My dress code includes a silver bow tie. Wish it were black, but that's what they do in my orch. I have BB and Carrot and Gibb bow ties, but I'm realizing that they're too small for my wide lapel zegna tux. Any recommendations? Self-tie and is a must, obviously. It also has to be only silver (no designs).

Gotta love the albatross bow ties! Seriously though, maybe last year's TF. But it's rare to find a plain silver TF bowtie. Not sure a grenadine would be alright either...

Nice tie spoo. But it needs to be more solid grey/silver. Much like the BB version. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=235&Product_Id=851140&Parent_Id=1032&default_color=Grey&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=#null

That would be great, Luftvier. I'm tempted to get the butterfly one. I wonder how it looks in person... it might be too big!

Edit: Tried to place a bid on the auction.. then I realized it was a month old. foo.gif

I love these... if only they were in grey/silver. Also by TF:

Can you not just get one made for you? Any tie manufacturers in Chile?

I'm having a new dinner suit made and I'm getting a black bow tie made as well by Dion in Canada.

I've had a tough time finding quality menswear here. I'm still looking for a bespoke tailor. I've even asked a fabric store that sold very nice fabric if they know of any tailors, and they said they didn't know of any.

Found some pictures of the butterfly bowtie and I think it's what I'm looking for. Plus, they ship internationally. Thanks luftvier!

Thanks for the recommendation, but they're all too small.
