Tom Ford bow ties were a big hit 5 years ago (when barely any significant designer had any line of bow ties in their collections). Tom Ford uses silk, wool blends, cashmere and other poly blends for their large bow ties and oversized bow ties. All Tom Ford bow ties are made in Italy.



Tom Ford bow ties of season 2013/ 2014 are "pre-tied". Not the typical when the back is stitched and impossible to undo. Tom Ford bow ties are still hand knotted, only difference is that the last 2 seasons they put a little stitch in the back (keeps the bow tie look nice), BUT you could cut it and re-tie the bow tie yourself!!
