Bowties for that Black Tie Event

Bowties are usually a requirement for a Black Tie event, but it does not mean your tie has to be Black.  These days men wear a variety of colours, usually with a matching cummerbund, but sometimes the Bowtie on its own.  Below we show you two alternatives, the Self Tie Bowtie for the seasoned wearers of this garment, or the easy option of a Pre-tied Bowtie.  Either way, they will look fantastic with your suit or Vest.

Is a Self Tie Bowtie right for me?

Tying a Bowtie is not as hard as people would believe it to be. Do you know how to tie a shoelace? Then tying a Bowtie will be no trouble for you!


Pre-tied Bowties are an easy option, but how proud would you be of yourself wearing a Self Tied Bowtie?  There is an art to it and just like tying shoelaces, it does take some practice, but once you get the hang of it there will be no going back.

How do I tie a Bowtie?

  • Place the bowtie around your neck, under your shirt collar, and hold both ends. The end on your right side should be around 4cm longer than the other end.

  • Cross the longer end over the shorter side close to your neck so that the loop around your neck is loose enough to work with, but not too loose.
  • Take the longer end through the loop and tighten a little if necessary.

  • Using the piece at the front, pull it to the left and then fold it over itself to the right. Hold the fold and bring the other end of the bow over the front of the bow.

  • Fold the bow to the left and take the longer length around the back and through the knot you previously made. This will form the back of the bow.
  • Tighten the bow by pulling on the opposite sides and halves of the bow simultaneously.

  •  To loosen, pull the front right side and the back left side apart. To tighten, pull the front left side and the back right side.

Self Tie Bowties are an alternative for the more confident tie wearer.
