Great Add-on
No special occasion. Again, just starting to acquire my western wear/outfits. The tie fits greats. Had to adjust the part that attaches all the way open, but it fits great. I would and WILL recommend your store. Keep up the fantastic work.

I prefer the look of the Floppy Bow Tie on a regular wear basis. This Tie also makes a statement and when worn with white shirts is quite attractive. I might shorten the "arms" just a bit to "balance" the look - my opinion - a bit better.

Western Bow Tie
No particular occasion. This is a part of my dress up clothing now, re: the movie "Tombstone". Adding to it still. I will also be buried wearing it. I like the Victorian and Western clothing you offer. Contemporary styles just don't do it for me anymore. I am old-school, non-progressive, pro-gun and anti-tech.

Excellent replica of the 19th century tie so widely used. I wore this tie with the classic work vest and a white shirt, it looked gorgeous in my opinion, I look forward to buying again in the future.

Getting compliments
I told my wife that I was getting this tie to go with my Farnsworth vest and wing collar shirt. She rolled her eyes and muttered, ďDear lord. You want to look like Colonel Sanders.Ē I took that to mean that she wholeheartedly approved of my choice. That was my misunderstanding. However, when everything arrived and I put it on, she did approve! Not only did she approve, she started naming all the places and events where I can wear it! Itís the small moments in marriage that build a lifetime of fun. Donít take yourself too seriously! Have some fun, even if other people think youíre silly!

Western Bow Tie
My husband is obsessed with the old time cowboy look and just had to have this tie. We live in the mountains of Colorado, all cowboy and ranch country, he wore it the first time to our small country church, white shirt, black vest, big black cowboy hat....swore he looked like the preacher himself. Made the outfit very distinguished. Everyone loved it.

Simple and Effective
There's not a whole lot to say for a "fake" bowtie. It looks convincing, which is the most important thing, and is easy to adjust and wear. What more would you need? It looks nice, is easy to work with, and works with many outfits.

Deluxe Bow Tie
My very first bowtie! The fit was perfect. Now I just have to get used to straightening it, but that might be a great affectation. Because of the fit, I plan to order other ties. And that's from someone who won't wear a tie in everyday life.

Western bow tie
The tie is adjustable at the neck which allows for a good fit. However the satin material is of poor quality and so the tie looks cheap...not worth the price because of this.

Pricey for what it is
This bow tie was very expensive for what it is (the shipping too), and it's just cheap satin which doesn't look very historical. It will do the job but I'm a bit disappointed.

floppy bow
Honestly, I am disappointed with the tie and did not wear it to the event I wanted to go to. The 'hook' that is mounted just behind the tie is not really behind the tie, and to wear it with a stand-up collar is impossible because the clasp shows! I have it packaged ready to return. Also, somewhere along the line a mistake was made, I really wanted the 001220 Deluxe Western Bow and I got the 001223 Deluxe Floppy Bow. I cannot declare who was at fault, but I was going to wear it anyway.

A Puzzlement
Beautifully crafted out of quality material, but I still I have no idea how to properly tie the blasted thing! There's a step-by-step pictorial of instructions available online, but it's just not elementary enough for my needs. I was lost by Step 3. So if you're willing to tackle the Rubik's Cube of fashion accessories, best of luck figuring this one out!

Not quite what I had expected
I was slightly disappointed when on receiving the tie I found it was not a strip of fabric that fastened with a button, but actually hooked together at the side and the front button was fixed to hold the two parts together. I can't really complain because the price is so reasonable, but I had imagined the tie to be of a slightly higher quality. Although the fact that the tie is adjustable tends to make up for it's construction. Would still recommend.
