When I couldn't find the perfect bow tie to wear at my wedding, my wife (fiancé at the time) and lil' sister (wedding coordinator) convinced me to create my own bow tie, along with my 5 groomsmen. Mind you, I had never sewn in my life, but learned how to use a needle and thread in the 9th grade. When you wear a "Bow Tie Willie" piece, you're wearing an item that was tailor made just for you. Not an off the rack, mass produced "unit". We make every handcrafted bow tie with the same care as "The Belmont" (the bow I created for my wedding shown above and below). We truly hope you feel as good wearing your handcrafted bow as we felt making it!
"Wearing a Bow Tie is a way of expressing an aggressive lack of concern for what other people think." -Unknown
All of our metal parts are Made in America. Links and adjusters are courtesy of "LouisWalton", out of San Francisco, CA. Labels come courtesy of "Schmabels Labels", from our brothers to the north, in Quebec, Canada. These are both great vendors who provide exceptional service and quality products.
We use an array of fabric types, patterns, and colors to make our bows. Our fabric houses of choice provide us with fine cottons, silks and wools to craft our bows. Fabric shopping is our favorite form of "retail therapy". We search far and wide to find the most beautiful combinations of fabric. Some of our more exclusive fabrics have also been used by some of your favorite designers and fashion houses.
