    Some of the Antonio Muro ties that were added to the site a couple of days ago.. (Except for 3) All are 3.5" width, unlined, untipped with hand rolled edges. Real Neapolitan delicacies.

    A few highlights from the SALE. There's 17 pages.. Too much to post here.

    All prices include VAT (so basically take off 20% outside the UK)

    If I wore bowties, I would have cleaned you out. Those LNP ones are just gorgeous.

    Totally agree. The quality of the silk is out of this world, really thick and luxurious. They also come in a gift box and instruction card for those (like me!) who have no idea how to tie a bow.

    Sorry for the picture quality (or lack of).. This is the card that comes with all the bow ties. It helped a lot.. Still took some practise though. It was the first time I'd ever tried.

    I learned how to do it back at school, but then didn't wear a bow tie for another fifteen years or so, and so I completely forgot.

    When I re-taught myself, I found most of it to be very easy, but the final step remained quite tricky for a while and I ended up having to re-tie and re-tie my bow ties until I got it right. Once you get the knack, it's really easy.

    It's hard to get that final step from a pic or video. I actually sort of stick my left thumb in there so it's easier to find where to push it through, if that makes any sense.
