Apologies, this is a repetition of a question I asked in another thread that wasn't answered:

I'm looking for a black velvet diamond end bowtie.

I know that Alexander Olch does one, but he's fairly expensive. Does anyone else have recommendations about where I might find one?

Also, I know that traditionally the bowtie matches the fabric of the dinner jacket's lapels, but, tradition aside-- I have a midnight blue, single breast, notch (I know, I know...) jacket with black satin lapels. How do you think it would look to mix this with the aforementioned bowtie? I like the way that velvet looks like a darker black than black silk. Tradition aside, what are your thoughts? I would be wearing this with a white gardenia boutonnière and a white pocket square in a low single point fold.

Thanks,

EI
