    My dress code includes a silver bow tie. Wish it were black, but that's what they do in my orch. I have BB and Carrot and Gibb bow ties, but I'm realizing that they're too small for my wide lapel zegna tux. Any recommendations? Self-tie and is a must, obviously. It also has to be only silver (no designs).

    Gotta love the albatross bow ties! Seriously though, maybe last year's TF. But it's rare to find a plain silver TF bowtie. Not sure a grenadine would be alright either...

    Can you not just get one made for you? Any tie manufacturers in Chile?

    I'm having a new dinner suit made and I'm getting a black bow tie made as well by Dion in Canada.

    I've had a tough time finding quality menswear here. I'm still looking for a bespoke tailor. I've even asked a fabric store that sold very nice fabric if they know of any tailors, and they said they didn't know of any.
