Shop - Elimar
There is nothing more rakish than black tie and of course, the highlight of any black tie outfit is the all important bow tie. Elimar is a new brand that I recently came across, and one that specialises in creating beautiful bow ties, by the world's finest silk weavers and bow tie tailors.
With an eye on the dandies out there, all of the pieces made by Elimar are handmade in England and the quality of the products really speak for themselves. Even though the bow ties are self tie, tailors at Elimar will tie them before they are sent out and they will arrive presented in a beautiful display box.
Mr Petter Byermoen Jahre
The range is designed by Mr Petter Byermoen Jahre (shown above) and by Norwegian Tina Haagensen who have used an innovative tailoring technique with the bow ties whereby one petal is smaller than the other. This makes the larger petal appear as a frame to the smaller. Furthermore, the adjustable neckband has an detachable hook & eye so petals from different silks can be mixed.
Here is a closer look at some of my favorites from the current collection:
Black and white art deco - £60
Brown art deco - £60
Pepita Paisley - £60
Black Rose - £60
Pink swinging subtle - £60
Cream crystal - £60
Shop my picks of the collection and the rest at Elimar, where you can get 15% off with the code "The Rakish Gent".
