Perfect for the confident well dressed man! This stylish grey self tie bow tie with white line drawings of little owls is the brother of my OTHER owls tie. You can find other owl and bird bow ties here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CCADesign/items?ref=l2-shop-infoname&section_id=18574028

We do lots of wedding parties so please contact us if you would like multiple sets.

• Fully adjustable for necks from 14.5" to 19.5" with a high quality nickel hook and slider - which also means you don't have to tie it every time you wear it (unless you want to).

• Hand washable in cold water, lay flat to dry and press with a steam iron.

• All items are hand made with attention to detail and a professional finish.

This design was originally meant as an homage to Rice University whose mascot is the horned owl but this has become quite a favorite with non-Rice grads. Understated and elegant, the design has a twinkle in its eye and the subdued coloring makes it a perennial go-to tie for many occasions. The fabric is 100% cotton produced by a small fabric house in North Carolina that uses ecologically friendly vegetable based dyes. The dyes are such that there can be a slight distressed effect on the grey background (called "crocking") with some of the ties. This is a natural feature and should not be considered a defect. The cotton fabric for this tie is not smooth and silky due to the organic nature and the vegetable dyes. Pattern placement will vary.

Frequently asked questions about CCADesign

I am delighted to offer custom orders for weddings.


In order for both parties to have a complete and accurate record of what we discuss, all communication is conducted through the Etsy messages ("convos"). I always respond promptly and fully - usually within minutes - to all inquiries.
BOW TIES measure 2.25" - 2.5" vertically at their widest point, measure 5" from side to side when tied and fit collar sizes 14.5" - 19.5".
Non standard sizes are available on a custom basis.

ALL my men's ties are SELF-TIE but I am always happy to tie a bow tie before shipping and offer this complimentary service as an option.

POCKET SQUARES are UNLINED (i.e. with a right side and a wrong side) and hemmed. They measure approx. 11" x 11".

SUSPENDERS have elastic inserts at the back to ensure a good fit. Clips attach the suspenders to the wearer's pants.

CUMMERBUNDS are pleated, approximately 6" wide at their widest point and have adjustable elastic at the back (either black or white).
I am not affiliated with Lilly Pulitzer ®, nor do I represent in any way that I am selling branded Lilly Pulitzer ® merchandise. To do so would be illegal and would violate Etsy's Terms of Use. However, all my Lilly bow ties, pocket squares and cummerbunds are made using authentic surplus Lilly fabrics from manufacturers who make the fabrics used in Lilly Pulitzer ® apparel.
I price my ties very competitively and offer exceptional quality and value. I do not give volume discounts as I make every order by hand and don’t save anything when filling an order for more than one item. Thank you for your understanding on this point.
I am committed to prompt and secure shipping but I am not responsible for any loss or damage to your package once it is placed in the care of the USPS and/or marked as "Delivered" by their tracking system. Per Etsy's published Buyer Policy, you are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your shipping address.
Cummerbunds have a standard 7 business day processing time. I can, however, provide a 2 business day expedited service for a $35 rush fee using the link found in the Cummerbunds section of my shop. Cummerbund sets are custom orders and are therefore non-returnable.
All my products are attractively packaged in clear bags and tied with grosgrain ribbon. Gift cards are available upon request and if you want the gift to be a surprise I am happy to wrap your order in tissue paper before tying it with the grosgrain ribbon.
Per EU regulations, please be advised that shipping costs of any returns are borne by the customer.
I am happy to provide up to 5 complimentary swatches and encourage you to request same before placing a custom order. Once a custom order has been placed it can only be cancelled if production has not started. Custom orders are not returnable.
