A couple of weeks ago I gave an endorsement for Ellie's Bow Ties based on what I had seen so far, though without actually trying one of the bow ties myself. Well, after writing that, Ellie's husband Andy got in touch with me and he and Ellie were generous enough to offer me a discount on a tie in exchange for a writing a review. Well, I picked out the Red Plaid Wool bow tie (which can currently be seen on the website), and it arrived this past Friday.
While it may seem convenient to write a positive review on a product that was provided at a discount, I am being completely honest when I say that this may be the most well-made bow tie that I own. The standard width and length are both good, it has a nice weight, the fabric is soft, and it ties nicely.
However, for whatever reason, I think the thing that I might be the most impressed with is the slider. It is very well sewn and I like the black material and black slider. Also, I love the label and think that it is a great touch.
So now, having actually experienced one of Ellie's Bow Ties myself, I can honestly say that I think these have to be the best bow ties you can get for your money (if not just the best bow ties, period). At $23 these things really are a steal, so I suggest going and buying one today.
Oh, and the best part is, these ties are made right in the great state of South Carolina. That is definitely something that few other companies can boast about.
