Anyone know where I could source one besides the pretieds on ebay?

I am looking for a standard butterfly self tie in black velvet.

Thanks.

I think Band of Outsiders has a self-tie velvet batwing out. I can't remember...might not be black.

I'm going to bump this - I'm in need of a quality black velvet, self-tie bow tie, and have exhausted my search. My only option seems to be Tom Ford via eBay (or by calling one of their stores), but I think it's rather silly to spend $250 on a bow tie that I might wear once or twice a year. For what it's worth, I don't have the time to go custom, and would actually prefer an adjustor since my neck measurement can fluctuate through the year based on my diet/training.

Any thoughts?

I have a velvet bowtie from Wickham House - they offer one in black

The velvet is more difficult to tie because the fabric is quite thick. I'd also give them plenty of turnaround time -I ordered mine for an event and it didn't arrive in time (took about 2 weeks for them to make and send it)

Thanks for the info. I emailed them to get the specs on it (it looks large). How is the quality?

Can't really give you much on quality, sorry, I wouldn't know what to look for. It's unexceptional but not bad. I'd say "appropriately priced" would be a reasonable statement.
