    It's an interesting concept, and there's a few patterns that could be fun. You don't mention the size of the bow ties; just visually they seem more narrow than a typical butterfly.

    Also, if that stupid spin to win wheel at the bottom right isn't spam I suggest you get rid of it quickly. I would avoid buying simply due to that regardless of my interest.

    Latest arrival from @Poszetka :

    Looking forward to wearing both shortly... the green one is unlined and incredibly soft, which makes it surprisingly hard to tie. Unlike the diamonds which tend on the large side, these are a bit more normally proportioned.

    Still the best value for money (new) I know of, if one likes the slightly messier aesthetic.

    Moderator's note: Please do not quote spam.

    Hopefully you're not just a marketing bot. So, since you linked to this site, how about some information on the product? The site doesn't explain why they're "custom", much less what materials they are made of. Can you show some real work pics and give further info on this? Since it's your favorite and all...

    This thread has been quiet for too long, let me relaunch it with Artur Schnabel:

    What is your knot philosophy? Complete wilful mess a la Schnabel? Get as close to the clip-on perfection a la Prince Charles? Somewhere in between? Why? What about the proportions - asymmetrical like Cox or half half?

    I've done the Schnabel way and particularly enjoy it with an otherwise very conservative fit (preferably white shirt and navy suit) as the one touch of wilderness.
