My husband and I have been invited to a black tie ball at Christmas and I'm keen to get him to wear a bow tie. He said he would if I got him one and tied it for him, but I've heard it's really difficult. Anyone got any tips on how to tie a perfect bow or recommendations on what designer bow tie to buy? colgate.gif

I suggest getting one from Great Bows. They make a nice formal bow and, best of all, they'll make it to order so you can choose the size of your bow to best match your spouse's face shape and size.

Thanks Mute, their 'bumptious' guide is very helpful, I have been trying this out on some old scraps of material I have in a sewing box, hopefully it will look better when I actually get the bow tie! :)

 

I actually ended up getting one from Black.co.uk after my Dad said that is where he got his from! If any of you are looking they have some very lovely ties, bow ties and all sorts of luxury accessories (http://www.black.co.uk/content/him-1015.cfm)

 

Thank you all! :bigstar:

My 11-year old daughter has a site called About the Neck and she hand-sews the bow ties. They're all self-tying so no cheating... She's got several patterns already but she's curious as to what other patterns everyone likes. If you wouldn't mind stopping by, I know she'd appreciate it.

A great idea for her to build upon... But the designs are too loud and/or goofy... 

 

You have posted a link on a website for grown men... Nobody here is wearing large pinecones, comicbook cut-outs, sports-team logos or mustaches on their neckwear.....

 

Invest in fabrics such as wool or better silk. Stay classic/subtle. Other than that - take the World! and I hope she is enjoying herself! :bigstar:
