Our formal bow ties, perfect for Black or White ties, are individually sized and will be the perfect addition to any tuxedo ensemble.

White Marcella Pique Single-End Bow Tie

A gorgeous white bow tie gives its name to, and is a defining feature of, the White Tie Dress Code, the single most dignified, refined, and formal dress code in menswear. With a formal
tailcoat, a white formal bow tie is one of the critical accessories for a glorious full-fig evening outfit. Most bow ties consist of two identical ends, but during the Golden Age of Menswear,
some especially dapper English gentlemen popularized a bow tie with a single end. Thanks to its reduced bulk, this single-ended bow tie appears superbly neat and timelessly elegant.

This white bow tie from Fort Belvedere is made from exceptional marcella pique and cut in the butterfly style, one of the most classic and versatile evening bow tie styles. Harkening back to a
more rarefied age of masculine dignity, this bow tie is the preferred choice for elegant gentlemen who are attending any White Tie event, from a gala opera premiere or wedding to a royal
coronation or Nobel Prize dinner.

Because this bow tie is self-tying, the quality of the material is put on full display with an unbroken, continuous neck that is perfectly sized to you, requiring no clunky and obstructing metal clasps. Individually-sized evening neck is increasingly rare nowadays and stands out as the choice of all discerning gentlemen. You will not find an individually-sized white marcella pique single-end bow tie of this quality anywhere else. This stunning menswear classic is also available in a smaller proportion or as a double-end bow tie.

What makes this white cotton marcella pique bow tie so special?

● Impeccable Italian Cotton Marcella Pique. The same material from which a White Tie waistcoat and formal evening shirt bib front are made, marcella pique is a unique cotton weave known for its iconic, waffled appearance. Fort Belvedere has sourced marcella pique with an exceptionally luxurious feel and distinct three-dimensional texture from a small, family-owned mill in Italy that produces cotton products of exceptional quality.

● Handmade. This bow tie benefits from unique artisanal construction, ensuring the softest feel and most delicate appearance possible.

● Self-Tie Bow Tie. Pretied bow ties look clunky and juvenile, appearing overly artificial and being reminiscent of little boys. Learning how to tie a bow tie is an essential gentlemanly skill that is made easy with our step-by-step video.

● Single-Ended. Tied in a slightly different manner than double-ended bow ties, single-ended bow ties are a singular menswear accessory that helps set apart genuine menswear experts, as their reduced bulk allows for exceptionally pleasing and slim lines.

● Fixed Sizing. To save money and effort, most formal bow ties on the market have an adjustable sizing clasp. Clunky hardwear can feel uncomfortable around your neck and will spoil the lines of your collar, especially if you are wearing a detachable wing collar.
Fort Belvedere is one of the few modern makers that offers a fixed-sized bow tie, perfectly suited to your personal measurements, and made from a solid piece of fabric so that there are no unsightly seams or lumps.

● Perfect Proportions. Styled with prominent bows that are reminiscent of the wings of a butterfly, this bow tie has dimensions of approximately 4.75” by 2.75,” or 12 cm by 7 cm.

White 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 appearance of a self-tied bow tie by embracing an effortless approach. How so? Don’t struggle to match both ends of your bow tie exactly. While White Tie is the most formal dress code, your bow tie allows for a little touch of personality, such as variation in the breadth of the bows, the tightness or looseness of the knot, and how high it sits upon your neck. The result is a bow tie that is definitively styled your way and that will fit your individual look.

The majority of modern bow ties come in only one or two boring styles with flimsy interlining. Fort Belvedere, however, has revived the classic bow tie varieties that made the glorious 1930s a part of the Golden Age of Menswear, with a bountiful collection of formal evening bow ties in a variety of shapes, materials, and sizes. This variety allows you to find the perfect bow tie to suit your face and your individual style.

This white marcella pique bow tie perfectly complements any kind of evening tailcoat and single or double-breasted evening waistcoats and vests and should be worn with a detachable wing
collar. A white bow tie is an essential component of White Tie, but do not forget other fine details! Be sure to include a crisp white linen pocket square and a refreshing boutonniere as well: traditionally, gentlemen wore a rose or carnation with evening ensembles.

How to Store This White Cotton Marcella 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.
