About Gustys Handmade Bow Ties for Men, Teenagers, Boys, Little Boys--Pretied
I delight in designing and creating from scratch to finish gorgeous silk and one-of-a-kind bow ties, seasonal styles--including wedding, cruises, Bar Mitzvahs, wine festivals, family reunions, holidays. 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, whimsical -- you name it, and I probably make it.
My handcrafted bow ties adorn the necks of men, teenagers, boys, and little boys (toddlers) in 26 countries, and counting. I feel like I'm "changing fashion one neck at a time."
All the creations in my shop are designed and created solely by me, whether bow ties, original poetry chapbooks and poetry bookmarks, or occasionally jewelry and photography.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Designer, Creator
I've been designing and crafting handmade bow ties, in hundreds of classic, designer, novelty, seasonal, and themed styles since 1998. Every bow tie is designed, handcrafted, and packaged by me alone.
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.

Additional policies and FAQs
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.
