Burgundy Leather Bow Tie
Made in the USA: Blade + Blue bow ties are made right here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
It starts with the fabric: I literally search the globe for premium grade fabrics that will perfectly complement the Blade + Blue shirt collection. This season's fabrics come from Japan, France & Denmark.
Then comes the shape: The choice is your's to make. Blade + Blue bow ties come to you already hand knotted. Simply hook the back clasp, then adjust to fit.
If you prefer the old fashioned method, you can undo the knot, firmly secure the back clasp and tie it yourself.
Burgundy Leather Bow Tie: OH BOY, are you ready? So, last spring I had this idea to make a batch of bow ties from this beautiful black leather that I found. I was so proud of it, but I had never seen anything like it before and I had no idea if anyone else would like it too. Well, I heard your love for it LOUD & CLEAR. They were gone so fast - I was so glad that I kept one for myself.
This winter, my inspiration came from the idea of mixing the hard with the soft. I took my softest flannel shirts and paired them with handsome leather suspenders & the new leather bow ties. It made me see these pieces in a completely new way. The flannels were now suited for a distinguished gentleman & the idea of the traditional bow tie was turned on it's head.
This bow tie is made from supple burgundy leather molded into the classic Blade + Blue bow tie shape. The leather is backed with a red satin for an elegant contrast which also keeps the bow tie thin enough to be easily adjusted to your size.
Like all Blade + Blue bow ties, the leather styles can be un-knotted & retied to your liking. But please note that this is not a traditional fabric and it is a little trickier to knot the leather, it may take you a few tries. And I am speaking from experience after I personally knotted all these for you guys! My forearm muscles are now huge!
Sizing: Please note that this bow tie can be adjusted to your preferred size. However, it is only recommended up to neck size 16.5" (commonly size Large).
