Silk Bow Tie in Black and White Glen Check

Fort Belvedere proudly offers a wide range of bow ties for day and formal evening wear. Our formal bow ties, perfect for Black or White ties, are individually sized and will be the perfect addition to any tuxedo ensemble. Our day bow ties prove that this versatile accessory is not just for eccentric dandies, but will appear elegant and dapper on any gentleman with our colorful selection of silk and wool challis options.

CHECK

You can check effortlessly class off the list with our selection of checked fabrics from Fort Belvedere. Featuring both dynamic lines and harmonious colors, checked bow ties are an ideal way to introduce color into your look without looking gaudy or  overwhelming, because the strong lines help to impart an
ordered, refined appearance.

What makes this bow tie special?

TIMELESS CHECK PATTERN. Also known as Glenurquhart Check, this distinctive check pattern consists of a woven design of both small and large checks, for a vibrant, visually-interesting appearance that has been worn by the likes of Cary Grant, Ronald Reagan, and King Edward VIII, for whom the pattern is sometimes called Prince of Wales check.

Hand-Made Construction. Unlike most modern machine-made bow ties, this Fort Belvedere bow tie is entirely made by hand, allowing for the introduction of artisanal touches like a specially selected cotton interlining that ensures a debonair drape and
perennially soft feel.

Classic Pointed Ends. One of the most classic shapes, this bow tie features the pointed ends that were typical for both social and business occasions during the Golden Age of Menswear.

Easily Adjustable. Our sliding neck-size adjuster was designed to be simple and easy to use, so you can achieve a custom fit to your exact size with ease. When you are in a rush, you can even unhook the adjuster clasp and leave the knot tied for convenience, although, for regular wear, we do recommend untying the knot to avoid wrinkles and premature wear, and aging.

Perfectly Proportioned. When tied, this bow tie has classically proportioned dimensions of approx. 4" by 2" or 10 cm by 5 cm

Bow tie style tips

A perfectly symmetrical self-tied bow tie is almost impossible to achieve, and it too closely resembles the artificial appearance of a cheap-looking pre-tied bow tie. Therefore, take advantage of the spontaneity and unique look of a self-tied bow tie by embracing a nonchalant approach.

How so? Intentionally leave one end of the bow tie a little longer than the other, or one side higher than the other, for an organic, sprezzatura-inspired appearance. You can also vary the tightness or looseness of the knot for more formal or casual looks. The result is a bow tie that is definitively styled your way and that will fit your personality.

The majority of modern bow ties come in only one or two boring styles with flimsy interlining and oversized, obtrusive proportions that were especially popular in the 1970s and 1990s.

Fort Belvedere, however, has revived the classic bow tie varieties that made the glorious 1930s a part of the Golden Age of Menswear, with smaller, neater bow ties that are subtle and sophisticated. Fort Belvedere offers a bountiful collection of day bow ties in a variety of shapes, materials, and sizes that will allow you to find the perfect bow tie to suit your face and your individual style.

 

How to store this bow tie.

After use, always untie your bow tie - do not leave it knotted, as this will work creases into the fabric. Store your bow tie loose, either hanging up or lying flat: the choice is yours.

Signature Green Gift Box.
Your Fort Belvedere bow tie arrives in a gorgeous and well-constructed Fort Belvedere box in our company’s iconic shade of forest green. This box is attractive enough to serve as a handsome gift box, but also sturdy enough for travel or regular storage.
