I love pinpointing the little details that are important to you and using that insight to create pieces that perfectly suit your style and needs.
Hi! For those who don’t know me, I’m Katie, the maker behind Tiebreaker Bow Ties. I handle both the creative and business sides of the business. I source the fabrics; design, sew, and photograph the products; maintain the website, and manage the business.
Another new bow tie! Pantone’s Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, inspired me to choose this vintage fabric.

About

Tiebreaker Bow Ties

Tiebreaker Bow Ties offers products that combine vintage design and unique textiles with a focus on upholding sustainable fashion practices. Whether you are dressing for a day in the office, a night on the town, or your wedding day, I aim to provide high-quality, handmade pieces that are both timeless and unique to your style - accessories that you love today and value for years to come.

Tiebreaker Bow Ties' products are designed and constructed with both quality and sustainability in mind. Each product is developed slowly with a focus on the details, from the fabric to the stitching to the packaging. I do my best to work with only responsibly sourced materials including vintage fabrics and salvaged textile waste - fabric swatches, remnants from fabric stores, sample pieces, and second-hand clothing, to name a few. Since these fabrics are often limited in quantity, there are just a handful of each design made. Care is taken when designing patterns to reduce waste, and remnants are often re-tailored into new products. Finally, I source packaging made from recycled materials whenever possible. Every time you shop with Tiebreaker Bow Ties your pieces are produced ethically and sustainably, start to finish by me, Katie.

Frequently asked questions
Return Policy

You may return or exchange your item within 30 days of delivery for a full refund minus postage costs. Please send the item back in its original condition and in its original packaging, using trackable shipping where possible. If you are returning an item from overseas, you must mark the item as a return to ensure that additional customs/import charges are not incurred. Should there be any charges, these will be deducted from the refund total due back to you. Your refund will be processed within 3 business days of receiving the returned item.

Custom orders or personalized items cannot be returned unless they arrive damaged. However, please contact me if there are any issues.

Custom and personalized orders

Special sizes, specific color palettes or prints, products made with your fabric - you name it and I'll do my best to make it happen! Send me a message and we can work out the product details, prices, and fulfillment dates. Please keep in mind that I work with vintage and remnant textiles, so some designs may be limited by the quantity of fabric I have in stock or by what fabric I am able to source. Customizations may increase the price per item based on the additional time, supplies, or pattern alterations required. I offer discounted rates for large orders and require payment in full before beginning work on custom orders.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Adult and child bow ties, skinny ties, cuff links, and pocket squares are packaged in recycled kraft boxes and tied with a ribbon. Hair bows and pet bow ties are packaged in recycled tissue paper and tied with a ribbon.

Is your purchase being shipped as a gift? I can add a handwritten note; just include the information in the "Note to Seller" section at checkout.

Care instructions

Spot clean or hand wash bow ties and pocket squares in cool water and lay flat to dry. Spot clean skinny ties. Do not machine wash. All hand-stamped and hand-painted fabrics have been heat set to ensure the pattern will not fade, bleed, or chip when hand washed.

Shipping

I rely on the USPS tracking number to determine the status of an order. If your domestic package goes off the radar for 15 days or more, I can offer you a refund or replacement. Packages marked as delivered are considered to be as such and any discrepancies should be discussed with your local post office.

If you'd like to add signature confirmation or insurance to your package, please contact me before or immediately after your order is placed. These add-ons will result in a small additional fee.

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.

Colors

I do my best to photograph colors true to life, but colors may vary from screen to screen. I can never be sure we are all seeing the exact same thing; please let me know if you have any questions.

Estimated Shipping Times

These estimates are the time from when I place the item in the mail to when it arrives to you. They do not include my processing time. Shipping times are dependent on the postal service and therefore I cannot guarantee them.
