First and foremost is the finish. The 24 karat gold plating is carefully managed and took years to perfect. The fabrics are hand selected and sewn individually. In this process, all bowties are completely hand made in American and one of a kind. In addition, we will gladly make a custom bowtie using your fabric of choice. The 24k Gold front bowtie layer can be interchanged with any fabric color (back bowtie layer) you have or can direct us to.
