Wool Challis Bow Tie in Orange with Green Polka Dots and Pointed Ends

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.

Wool Challice

 Although introduced in Norwich, England in 1832 as a favored alternative to worsted wool or silk for the upper-class gentry, wool challis is extremely rare in menswear today, especially in the realm of neckwear. Therefore, you can be sure that you will be one of only a few gentlemen sporting this refined and elegant fabric, which can typically only be found at the most elite haberdashers.

What makes this bow tie special?

Wool Challis is an impeccable material for bow ties because it naturally resists wrinkles, holds color beautifully, and is exquisitely soft: the name challis is, in fact, derived from the Anglo-Indian word shalee, which means soft!

Sensational Spots. One of the most whimsical and refined patterns in menswear, polka dots allow for the easy introduction of unique colors with an unexpected twist. Fort Belvedere is proud to be the only retailer we know offering this timeless pattern printed on lustrous wool challis.

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.

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.

Hand-Printed Pattern. Printed on an artisanal screen in a process typical of Old World production, the colors of this pattern shine with an unusual brilliance that cannot be replicated by any other method.

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

To prevent heavy creasing, never store your neckwear tied or knotted. Undo the knot and then roll the necktie up in a firm but not excessively tight coil. Allow it to sit in the coil for about a day
to relax wrinkles. To prevent stretching, knit ties should be stored rolled or flat. All other ties may be stored hanging up if desired.

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.
