Black Diamond Bow Tie in Silk Satin - Sized & Self-Tie 

The black bow tie is not just the namesake of the Black Tie Dress Code but also the most important piece of the tuxedo or dinner jacket ensemble.

This Fort Belvedere Black Satin Bow Tie is a wonderful addition to any black tie ensemble because it provides you with a unique look due to its pointed ends.

On most balls, galas, weddings or evening events men usually go with a classic butterfly bow-tie shape, which we also offer here. If you want to add a special, yet sophisticated touch.

The silk used is the most luxurious Warp Satin you will ever find, and better than any other Satin out there providing you with a luxurious sheen. Of course, it is a self-tie bow tie but on top of that it has an unbroken, continuous neck that is made exactly for your size so you can't see or feel any metal clasps on your collar, and that is both rare and the choice of real gentlemen. 

You will not find a better black bow tie with pointed ends anywhere else! 

What makes this Black Warp Satin Bow Tie so special?

1. Fort Belvedere sources the luxurious silk warp satin from a renowned Italian silk mill. 99.99% of another satin used for bow ties is inferior weft satin that is cheaper to produce and has an inferior lustre.

2. Handmade - This bow tie is entirely made by hand with a special cotton interlining that enhances the softness of the material as well as the shape.

3. Pointed Ends - During the heyday of black tie and white tie, elegant men would wear various bow tie shapes and not just one. The pointed ends of this bow tie are classic, yet it is impossible to find this shape even at well-known haberdashers today. Add a sophisticated twist to your outfit and stand out from all the other black bow tie wearers with this unique pointed-end bow-tie shape.

4. Self Tie Bow tie - Self-tie bow ties separate the gentlemen from the boys. You must know how to tie your bow tie.

5. Fixed Size - it is very rare to find fixed-sized bow ties today especially the ones that are made from a solid piece of fabric in the back, which is essential for (detachable) wing collars because you never want any clasps showing in public. Likewise, it also looks and feels better with a turndown collar. In short, a fixed size black bow tie is the way to go for gentlemen. 

6. This Butterfly Bow Tie will have dimensions of approx. 4.75" by 2.5" or 12 cm by 6.5 cm.

7. Unique Lustre - this satin has a glossy surface and a dull back surface, which is created by weaving with more warp threads which is a much more difficult, sophisticated, and beautiful process than weft satin, which often looks cheap. Because of the particular way the silk threads are woven together, less light is reflected off of the surface of the fabric giving satin its characteristic even sheen and lustre.

Black Bow Tie Style Tips

A bow tie should never be tied to look perfectly symmetrical because it would look too much like a pre-tied cheap version, and who wants to look cheap? Instead, you should tie your black bow tie with a bit of wit, nonchalance or sprezzatura, meaning intentionally off-kilter with one end a little longer than the other, one side higher than the other, or a tight or a loose knot to achieve bow tie perfection.

Most bow ties suffer from poor interlining and the same boring two shapes - not so Fort Belvedere bow ties. Inspired by the glorious 1930s, this classic evening bow tie shape is one of those small details that set the gentleman apart from the boys. It is large enough, yet not overly big so it suits any face.  This black silk satin bow tie works well with all kinds of tuxedos with a satin lapel, midnight blue or black tuxedo, white or off-white shirt, studs or no studs, vest or cummerbund.

Make sure to wear a boutonniere with your black bow tie and tuxedo. Traditionally men wear roses and carnations with evening ensembles.

How to Store This Black Silk Satin Bow Tie

Simply untie your bow tie just like you would untie your shoes. Store it hanging or laying flat, it is up to you. 

Signature Green Gift Box

This bow tie comes in a heavy Fort Belvedere box, perfect unadorned for a gift box, storage or travel.
