The Butterfly, The Straight, and the Diamond Point Bow Tie

Here are some pictures of my classic 2 3/8″ butterfly bow tie, the diamond point and the straight style bow tie.  Some gentlemen have been asking what the difference is and hopefully these pictures will help answer it.  I can make virtually any size bow tie – I’ve even been asked to make 4 inch bow ties!  And most of the time when someone has a special request I can certainly work with him.  That’s the benefit of custom ordering directly from the artisan.

Straight Style Bow Tie – Measures 1 3/4″ tall

You can judge for yourself what you like.  Over the past few months, I have sold each style about equally.  I was surprised how many ordered the less popular bow ties.  I love them all and they all have different looks.  The diamond point and straight bow ties are much harder to find, but the butterfly can be more readily found at men’s dress shops.  I do them all depending on what you choose.  As soon as I take a good picture of the narrow butterfly I’ll add it to this post.

  1. Ellie,

    What is the name of the first bow tie photographed above? I’d love to order one just like it.

    Thanks!
    Andrew

    • Hi Andrew,

      That was a conversion from a thrifted neck tie; it’s long gone. Sorry!

      Ellie
