The SALE is coming to a close tomorrow and where I sit is not far from where I pick the bow ties. The quantity of silk that has departed has actually made me rather sad rather than happy. I guess it is like seeing your kids grow up and leave home. An experience I've not had just yet. Regardless, what I find the most baffling about the sale is the deals that go unnoticed.
Personally one of my favourite bow ties I have worn this year is Napoleon, a red satin silk with a weft of red satin polka dots. The last I checked there were two remaining. The same can be said for Wolfgang and Volker, both remarkable bow ties. The BIG surprise is that the tie, Ivan, a green ground satin silk with orange tennis balls motif, is still on the website. If I told you how much it cost me to make that tie (the tie is made by hand in our Sydney studio) your eyes might water. It is an 8cm tie with hand slip stitch in orange thread, hand bar tacs front and rear blade and it has no centre anchored tie bar; it is instead stitched on four points from the side by hand so there is no handle change as you run your hand down the centre of the tie blade. These and many other surprises still are yet to be had and to be claimed. In the meantime, I sit by my computer..... baffled! Of course, I have the added advantage that I made them, so I have a competitive advantage over you lot. But then, I can't buy my own stock...
