Houndstooth bow ties, also know as Dogtooth or Pepita are a staple in a classic men's wardrobe.
Fort Belvedere redesigned the classic houndstooth bow tie, by using a richly textured bourette silk combining it with burugndy and cream so you can look dapper no matter if you wear a navy or charcoal suit or a brown or green Donegal tweed jacket
What makes this Bourette Houndstooth Silk Bow Tie in Dark Green & Pearl Grey so special?
1. Fabric. The bourette silk used for this tie has character and strong texture that is somewhat similar, yet different than shantung. Naturally, silk has different thicknesses and for bourette, it is desirable to have distinctly different yarns so you get a wonderful texture.
We had it woven in a slightly oversized houndstooth that works well with all striped, Glencheck, solid or pinpoint and needle head suit patterns.
The classic colors of Dark Green& Pearl Grey are tied together with a dark contrast and produce a unique and sophisticated look.
The thickness of the fabric results in a nice, full bow tie knot.
2. Classic Pattern Reinvented. While traditional houndstooth, dogtooth or pepita ties and either printed or jacquard woven in a smaller pattern, this bourette silk necktie adds a lot more character and texture not matter whether it is paired with a business suit, sport coat or casual tweed jacket.
3. Handmade & Adjustable. This bow tie is hand made and adjustable to your neck size and one size fits it all.
Made so it could be worn with all classic suits and sport coats, the color scheme of dark green and pearl is very understated yet very manly. Rather using bright white as a contrast color, we opted for faint pearl gray because it helps to wear the tie with any kind of dark suits.
It pairs well with all kinds of shirt colors as well as tweeds, flannels and business suits alike. Most men start out with red and blue ties, maybe a yellow one but green is likewise timeless and a wonderful addition to any tie collection. Wear it with solid or patterned suits or sport coats for the best look.
Avoid patterns that are similar in size, though due to the slightly oversized houndstooth pattern that should not be a concern at all. No matter if you need a tie for spring summer outfits or fall/winter, casual or business - this tie will get a lo of use, promised.
Begin by untying the knot pulling on the single ends on either side at the same time. Afterwards, store it in the giftbox of hanging on a rack.
This silk tie comes in a heavy Fort Belvedere gift box.
