Let’s be honest. You could open another browser tab right now (next to the 25 you already have open) and find dozens of results for men’s black bow ties. Dig a little deeper and you will discover two things: they are either ridiculously cheap or outrageously overpriced.
Cheap bow ties are a result of cheap materials. They are usually made of polyester, a petroleum-based synthetic material that can have very wide variations in quality. Tie Bar bow ties are made from materials that don’t have chemical names, like woven silk, cotton, linen. And they are handmade with 2 plys of material joined with a blind stitch. It gives the bow tie an extra-finished look: substance without the stiffness of some synthetic bow ties.
On the other end of the spectrum are bow ties that are more expensive than coffee every day at Starbucks for 2 months. Why pay for their overhead? Tying a quality, self-tie bow tie (which is easier than you think, see our how to tie a bow tie guide) is a smart move that gets the same look.
And unless you plan to wear this black bow tie by itself, we suggest adding a dress shirt. A crisp, non-iron white shirt like our Pinpoint Solid dress shirt keeps the look classic. Toss one in your cart and you get free shipping on your whole order.
It’s time to clean up your browser tabs and your look with a new men’s black bow tie from Tie Bar.
