    I haven't seen many on B&S.
    Most stores only carry their formal bow ties online, that's not what I'm looking for. Plain white or black isn't what I need right now.
    Duchamp has a lot I like but I don't want to pay 18 pounds to ship them to Canada.
    I have an Etro blue paisley that I love. But I want a few more...
    Where do I find them?
    Patterned? Wool? Silk? etc

    The Ben Silver catalog usually features bow ties.

    www.beautiesltd.com

    I don't wear bowties much, but most of my ascots ("cravats" as they call them) come from them. Good people to do business with.

    I've been happy with the quality, price and service from www.bowtiesandmore.com

    That's considerabely cheaper than e.g. beauties -- and with free international shipping to boot. What's the catch?

    And, on another note, if I were to start a bowtie collection, where should I start? ;-)8

    How about the ones at R. Hanauer (http://www.bowties.com/ )? Has anybody purchased from them?

    The Tie Bar is super cheap if you are just experimenting...
