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.

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.
