Amazing pattern

I wore this tie to a board meeting. The black on black paisley pattern is subtle, but has just enough sheen to it to give it some pop. The silk is quality and smooth.

5-star dino tie!

The dino pattern on this bow tie is fun - a great conversation starter. Quality is top notch.

Nice ties

I am glad that I found you. Your ties are well made, well priced, and in the process I get to play a small role in helping kids. That is a win all around. Keep it up, and I will be back to buy more ties.

light it up blue tie

I bought this for my husband to wear throughout April (and of course the rest of the year!) He received so many compliments on it from people. The color is the perfect shade of blue. Such a great purchase!

Thanks for that great review, Kate. We're so glad your husband likes the tie!
Colorful and universally appealing addition

This bow tie and color scheme goes with just about everything. I have to stop myself from using it so frequently because of that fact. Materials are also spot on and gets easier to knot/tie as you use the tie more (like all bow ties).

Thanks for this review! We'd have to agree.. this tie is so versatile its hard not to go back to it time and time again.
