This bow tie is made from a striped wool flannel by Fox Brothers & Co. Initially designed as a sporting for stripe club blazers and such, this lightweight worsted wool flannel cuts just as good a figure when turned into a bow tie. The burgundy base with navy and cream stripes is a timeless color scheme, whereas the mottled finish, and the soft hand make this tie stand out without being ostentatious.
Pair it with a light blue shirt, navy sport coat, grey flannels and chestnut austerity brogues for a classic look or go bold(er) with a light blue OCBD, a fawn green tweed suit and burgundy Balmoral boots.
For pocket squares, we recommend choosing a white linen with a light blue border or forest green based silk square.
The history of Fox Brothers & Co can be traced back to the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. People like the Duke of Windsor, Winston Churchill and Cary Grant all chose to wear garments made from the companies’ cloth. Today, Fox Flannel still is a synonym for the best wool flannel worldwide.
Our bow ties are entirely hand made from the cutting of the fabric to the sewing of the bar tacks in a small workshop in Como, Italy. This family business is around since more than half a century and has already been working for a number of well-known brands.
All bow ties are self tie bow ties and can be adjusted to fit any collar size.
