I must admit that between the ages of 11 and 29 I didn’t wear a single bow tie. Admittedly as a child, according to my parents, I wanted to look classy and rocked a bunch of them. Recently I’ve been feeling the urge to wear bow ties again and in that search I came across the Bow Tie Club.
In 1994 Kirk Edward Hinckley started the Bow Tie Club after working at Brooks Brothers, Nordstroms and Joseph Bank Clothiers. BTC is truly a family business as Kirk’s wife Corinne does the graphic designs for all the bow ties, and together they have made the most amazing collection.
What makes BTC unique is not only that they make the bow ties themselves and design the patterns, but they also have the raw silk custom made into cloth to their specifications, made from the highest weight printed silk that they can find. The reason the weight is important is two-fold: one it allows more dye to be absorbed into the silk, creating brighter and more vivid colours, and two, the heavier cloth wears better which is so important in a bow tie since it is close to the neck.
With over 400 unique bow ties to choose from and offered in 48 variations, including pre-tied, clip-on, tie your own, longer neck, shorter neck, larger and smaller neck, diamond point, straight edge, and more, BTC is pretty much the one stop shop for all bow ties no matter what your style or preferences are!
So if you are looking for the perfect bow tie for any occation then you must check out the Bow Tie Club today, as they have a huge and wonderful selection of some of the best, most classic and fun bow ties I’ve ever seen! Are you ready to get Addicted to the bow tie? Well I am!
