Black Mottled Hair-On Hide Calf Leather Bow Tie
Brand Well Done Goods
Black Mottled Hair-On Hide Calf Leather Bow Tie. With a nod to Méret Oppenheim's surrealist fur cup and saucer, this statement piece can go ranch to red carpet in an instant. Luxurious hair-on cowhide with a soft suede reverse: weighty, rugged, fashionable. Laser cut in house for perfect crisp, modern lines. We've carefully selected hides for both fashion and durability - leather ties are meant to not only span the seasons, but decades. Each is one of a kind, no two leathers are ever exactly alike. This is a very warm black-to-deep-brown color. Mottled/textured patches without fur stem from an unique acid-washing process that distresses a patchwork pattern into the leather.
Leather will get even more awesome with wear. Die-cast zinc metal slide adjusters - will not break, harm your shirt or the leather.
How are these different than all the other leather bow ties out there? These are "real" self-tie bow ties. The kind big kids wear.... If you don't have training wheels on your bike, you shouldn't have a clip-on bow tie, no matter how fun the material!
We do all of our own laser cutting, from the pattern drafting to the making the computer and vector file talk to the laser, to watching it cut (must mind it through the whole process - fire = bad!) to cleaning the edges and sewing the center seam, every step from start to finish. This is not farmed out to some anonymous laser shop. Our shared laser cutter is located just a block from our screenprinting workshop in Detroit's Historic Eastern Market.
Please note: Pony hair and pony fur are generic terms for hair-on hide in the fashion industry. It is cow or calf leather that has not had the hair removed - also known as haircalf. Absolutely no ponies involved! We realize leather is not for everyone, however our cowhides are sourced from the meat industry. If you believe in "nose-to-tail" eating and living, this is the most ethically sourced type of leather you can find.
