It's time to buy a bow tie for my new Tuxedo. Of course it will be grosgrain to match the facing BUT the big question is, Butterfly vs Diamond Point?

 

Does anyone have pictures of a Diamond Point bow with peak lapel tux?

I'm facing the same dilemma. You can see a diamond point on a PL at http://www.thecordialchurchman.com/collections/formal/products/black-faille

I may just order this tie.

I spoke to them about making that exact tie a few weeks ago. They sent me a sample of the material to see how it compared to the grosgrain which I was looking for to match my tux. it is very nice, ribs are not as pronounced as the tux which I was hoping for. It is certainly on my list of choices and think it would make a great addition.

 

If you end up buying one, please snap a few picture and post them.

I'm glad you shared this website. My tux is grosgrain, and I have a Blace Fleexe BB straight batwing bowtie that I like, but I am really liking the texture of the black pique bowtie.  Thoughts?

Personally, I think the cotton pique is too informal (if nice) looking.  Upon closer inspection, I can see that the grain of Cordial Churchman's  faille is too subtle (as noted by Brianpore).

 

My other options for faille / grosgrain in a diamond point are presently from Le Noeud Papillon (http://lenoeudpapillon.blogspot.com/2012/03/do-you-recall-clarence-carter-bow-i.html) and R Hanauer (http://www.bowties.com/index.cfm/p/products/range/105/cat/341/subcat/0.htm).  The former is exactly what I'm looking for at a price that I can't justify; the latter amounts to settling, which no one wants to do when literally dressing one's best.

 

Any other options?

So pique is less formal than grosgrain or satin? Or only if its in black?

I have this one, as well as a standard butterfly grosgrain. Much prefer the diamond point.
