It seemed odd that Robert Olson of Houston, Texas, USA would need a white satin silk bow tie from Le Noeud Papillon in Sydney, Australia. The beauty of being present on the internet is that you can cast a much wider net and so it was that Robert must have stumbled upon us somewhere or another and liked what we did. His needs were specific:
"Ok so I am getting married on May 26, 2012. I really like your style and want my bowtie and cumber to be from you guys. I love the Luca model but don't know much about fabric. I need kind of a quick turnaround on my order."
It was a rush, but our bow tie and cumerband, in the end a white satin silk, managed to arrive on his doorstep the same day he was flying out of Houston for his wedding. This morning I received an email from Robert with the subject line 'I did not forget' as I had asked him to share with us his bow tie. I absolutely love the knot on this one. Congratulations Robert.
