Announcement   Welcome to Gustys bow ties for men, teens, boys, and toddlers.

(rev 2016) ALL HANDCRAFTED -- I've been designing and crafting handmade made-to-order bow ties for men, teenagers, boys, and little boys (toddlers), in hundreds of classic, designer, novelty, seasonal, and themed styles since 1998. Every bow tie is personally designed, lovingly handcrafted, and carefully packaged by me alone. No outsourcing whatsoever.

BOW TIES -- Now featuring some gorgeous silk and one-of-a-kind bow ties, spring and all seasons styles--including wedding, cruises, Bar Mitzvahs, wine festivals, family reunions. I make over 1,000 styles of bow ties including polka dotted, plaid, striped, paisley, floral, Christian-themed, ethnic, geometrics, patriotic, Jewish, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, St. Urho's Day, Tax Day, Easter, abstracts, music themed -- you name it, and I probably make it. Not all my styles are listed -- please inquire if you don't see what you want, and I'll try to list it for you.

SHIPPING -- I charge exact shipping only (no charge for packaging or handling). Any overage for shipping over $1 is refunded. For US domestic shipping (USPS first class parcel mail) , charge for first item is $2.60, 50 cents for each additional item.

PRIORITY SHIPPING USPS UPGRADE -- USPS Priority shipping is offered for US domestic shipping only.

NON-USA countries--please contact me for arranging a special listing. We have shipped to countries on all but one continent--26 countries, and counting.

SHIPPING TIMES -- I'm frequently asked: "How long will it take for my item to arrive?" I promise to ship next business day or two after payment, but once the package leaves my hands, I have no control over it. I've noticed of late that the post office is taking longer to deliver packages, both domestically and internationally, so you cannot always gauge by USPS estimates.

SIZES -- Most of my bow ties can be converted to teenagers, boys, and little boys (toddler) sizes--just ask. Men's size is approximately 5 inches across, and boy's is 4 inches.
Sorry, I do not craft self-tie bow ties, clip on bow ties, or long ties.

Kwanzaa
New Year's

ABOUT GUSTY'S BOW TIES -- All come with an attractive tag listing the fabric content. The bow tie is fitted on an adjustable, easy-to-manage twill neckband, which fits under the shirt collar (see photo in each listing). The pretied bow ties are NOT clip on or self tie or long tie, and all are lightly interfaced as needed for body. My hubby says that these bow ties are easy to put on, easy to wear, much more comfortable than conventional long ties.

OTHER ITEMS--From time to time, I offer other items such as my own original poetry chapbooks, bookmarks, and fiber arts.

AVAILABILITY -- All items are usually in stock, or are made to order. I ship promptly Monday through Friday, and occasionally on Saturday. Some of my styles are available in quantity--just ask, and I'll advise how many I have.

ABOUT OUR HOME -- Non-smoking environment, and we share our home with dogs and cats. My workshop is off limits to our pets.

PAYMENT METHODS ACCEPTED
We accept credit cards via Etsy Direct Checkout (accepts most credit cards) and PAYPAL for US and other countries. We pay for free tracking on domestic orders. Please ensure that your credit card provider and PayPal have your current address--both require me to ship to the address you provided to them.

Welcome to GUSTYS BOW TIES FOR MEN AND and young men (boys over age 12), and boys. I've been designing and crafting handmade bow ties in hundreds of classic, designer, novelty, seasonal, and themed styles. I have been selling on line and exhibiting at local festivals since 1998.

I make over 1,000 styles of bow ties including polka dotted, striped, American flag, lobster, Christmas, silk floral, Christian-themed, St. Patrick's Day, abstracts -- you name it, and I probably make it. Not all my styles are listed -- please inquire if you don't see what you want, and I'll list it for you, if I have it. Most of my bow ties can be converted to young men's and boy's sizes -- just ask.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment by Etsy Direct Checkout and PayPal. PayPal e-checks may not ship until cleared, according to PayPal policies.
Shipping
We use USPS first class mail. We ship promptly Monday through Friday only--sometimes on Saturday. We notify you when the bow tie has been shipped and provide tracking info. No charge for packaging or handling.

USPS Priority Mail upgrade is available. Sorry, we do not offer overnight, USPS Express shipping, or UPS, or FedEx, due to outrageous costs which exceed the cost of the bow tie.

International orders can take time due to customs holds or post office practices. Please allow sufficient time for international shipping. We fill out customs forms accurately and honestly; all VAT, customs fees, and others costs levied by the buyer's country are the responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because my items are 'wearable.' I do not ship 'on approval.' If I have erred in the description, I will issue a full refund plus postage if item is returned in the pristine condition in which it was received, within 10 days. Your satisfaction is my goal.
Additional policies and FAQs
GIFT CARD -- I can include a gift card at no charge for you -- just advise me of the wording you want.

YOUR FABRIC BOW TIE -- I can make bow ties from your fabric--just convo me for details.

MULTIPLE BOW TIES -- let me know how many of a style you want, and I will create a listing just for you. Inquire first, because I don't always have sufficient fabric for multiples of a style, especially silks, which are usually one-of-a-kind.

MEN'S AND BOY'S SIZES -- men's bow ties are approximately 5 inches across, and boy's are 4 inches. I can convert most bow ties to young men's and boy's sizes at no additional charge -- just ask. Some bow ties cannot be converted dur to pattern scale.

PHOTOGRAPHY -- My crafting of bow ties is better than my photography. If the color shade doesn't quite reflect the actual colors, I will note that in the fabric description. And your perception of the color may differ because of your computer monitor. I strive to be accurate whether by photo or text.

HOME ENVIRONMENT -- non-smoking, we do share our home with a doggie and a kitty kat which are banned from my studio.

GOLDEN RULE -- We strive to treat others as we would wish to be treated (we buy online too). We appreciate positive feedback and always post the same for our buyers after we know they are satisfied.

CONTACT US -- use Etsy convo or email gahendrick [!at] yahoo.com
phone 443-280-2584. Communication is key to successful transactions.
