I'm currently in love with button up shirts, which somehow in my mind logically progressed to bolo ties and bow ties....and then Bow-Lo ties...(seemingly there's some sort of cheesy uncle comedy routine deep within me, making it so that I CANNOT say no to a good pun)
The bow portion of the tie is made of off-cut or recycled leather. Some of it is from vintage clothing I've cut up, some from a local supplier who sells leather scraps. The bow is securely held together with a metal rivet that goes through all the layers. A metal bolo tie backing is attached to the bow at the back. The ties themselves are nylon/poly cording in black. The tips are one of the best parts of this piece, a good bolo needs a weighty tip for maximum swinging motion! This colour combo has a great arrowhead brass tip that I'm in love with...I was so excited when I found these!
As are all bolos this necklace is completely adjustible, and can be worn with the bow tight at the collar, swinging low as more of a necklace, or any length in between.
Thanks so much to my friend Charlotte for modelling! If you're looking for a model for hire in Montreal let me know and I can put you in contact with her!
