Right bit over left, then under the first right bit then make a bow...no!..it should be the left beneath.....now I've got my finger stuck in it!!
Ok, what I will give you is several sites where you can buy your bows (self tie of course!) and if you then go to Youtube you can see lots of videos showing you just how to do.
Etsy is a great site, just type in self tie bow ties and off you
go. One seller I use a lot is a lady called Louise, who lives in France and makes my ties for me. Her prices are sensible, the quality is excellent and the service is fast and polite And very professional bagzetoile is Louise's site. She will
make to order, either do a self tie bow with a clip at the back so if you are still a bit nervous it comes already tied and can be left like that if you feel you can't master it or can be undone and re-tied. She will also make to your exact size, at no extra
cost, so you can wear with a wing collar without a fastener showing.Another site Swaggerandswoon. Gary, the owner is very helpful and they have a great selection. So does Pocket Watch and Wastecoat. Valerie also is very helpful
and will make to order to fit your neck size. A different site is the Tieroom Swedish made bows - these are like Saabs and Volvos they are heavy duty and great for the casual look as many look great with a pair of Levi jeans - yes I did
say that - sometimes it's great to mix the Gentleman with a dash of casual and these ties will hit the spot - actually all these I have mentioned do the more 'casual bow tie', which personally I think is great. If you want to combined a liberty style pattern
with a rich tweed then I have discovered a wee Etsy site that is in the UK run by Julia Fox called Ivy cottage Tweeds. She can also be found on ebay uk. Excellent self tie bows and service is so polite and fast.
Below are some of the
site links mentioned.
