Hello All - I will be in SF this weekend and am looking for a good place to buy a very traditional high quality bow tie for a black tie affair. Can anyone point me to the best place to get good assistance with such a purchase? Thanks. I can't say from first-hand experience, but Barneys, Neiman Marcus or Saks might have something. Or you can try the speciality shops of Wilkes Bashford or Cable Car Clothier.
