Bow Ties, Pocket Squares, Fine Leather Goods

Here's what you need to know: I eat, sleep and breathe bow ties. Sure, there are some pocket squares thrown in occasionally, some killer scarves in the colder months, and yes, I even make really awesome pencil pouches or tech cases with wool and leather and such. But bow ties are my thing.

Running L. Perkin is my full time job and I take care of every part of the business. I draft the patterns and test them over and over to get the exact proportions that will look best around your neck. I choose the fabrics- new every season- and obsess over the precise shade of coral that will compliment your skin tone. I cut each tie, individually, to make sure that the curves are just right, then sew and cut again so that the seams lay flat. I've sourced the perfect hardware that won't catch or snag the fabric as it slides along to adjust your tie to your neck. I am passionate about making the best bow ties.

For you, this means less hassle. I hope that you will browse the photos of my current tie offerings (taken by my husband and myself, in natural light) and pick your favorites with the confidence that every tie that leaves my studio is top notch. I hope that you'll be pleasantly surprised by how quickly your tie arrives in the mail and then take a minute to admire the signature "L. Perkin" box (I stamped them all!). And then I hope that you'll add it to your collection of other ties, but perhaps love it a little extra since it was made so close to home. Or that you'll pass them out to your wedding party and grin big when you see how dapper everyone looks. Or that you'll leave it right in the box and tie a ribbon on it for your favorite guy, who deserves a special treat.

Can a bow tie change your life? I think that maybe it can. Or maybe your life will stay exactly the same, but at the very, very least, you'll look awesome living it.

Welcome to my shop! I'm so glad you found your way here. I love to sew and create things with beautiful fabrics. I also love designing my own, one of a kind patterns. I think that everyday items can be a pleasure to use when they are designed and made with care and that is why I am passionate about handmade goods!
All the items you see in my shop have been designed and sewn by me in my smoke-free, pet-free home.
