My husband, Dr. Peter Shaw, noted for his bow tie collection, sports one of your Beau Ties. Our six-month-old grandson, Duncan Shaw-Rose, is wearing a bow tie bib crocheted by one of Grandpa's patients.
Many years ago, after I started wearing bow ties, people began to treat me in a very kind and open-minded way. Thus, the bow tie became not only part of my clothing, but also a personal trademark. Because nice ties are very hard to find here in Germany, I would like to order some of yours.

I've had six long ties converted to bow ties, and they are GREAT. I could not be more pleased, and have sent three more for conversion.

I recently had my college necktie converted into one of your handsome freestyle Beau Ties. If only hairlines could be as easily rejuvenated. My closest friends and former classmates still get together annually, and I look forward to sporting your natty creation at our next reunion... Keep up the great work and my best wishes to you and your staff.

I recently received my new bow ties which you folks were able to convert from my traditional neck ties. Thanks! You did a great job. Your skills and artistic abilities were a very pleasant surprise.
Your ability to center particular stripe patterns and produce a new product that is tasteful, attractive and balanced is wonderful. Keep up the good work, and I'll certainly tell my friends about you whenever they ask, 'Where'd you get that great tie?'

Once, as an Intern caring for a very sick patient, I noticed the tip of my favorite long tie floating in his bedpan. He survived - my tie did not. I have worn bow ties ever since.

Thank you for being the only source for a diverse selection of high quality bow ties. Your catalog is fun to experience and your fabrics are excellent. Beau Ties always result in a sharp, clean bow.

There's an advantage to wearing a bow tie when you buckle your seatbelt. No need to move the tie to avoid having it creased or displaced by the shoulder strap.

Recently I was asked to speak to the Rhode Island Judiciary’s judges. I was on the program with another gentleman (who I had never met) from California. During our phone conversations in planning the program we found out that we were both bow tie aficionados. I ordered matching ties from Bill’s Private Stock for the big day. Attached is a picture of us outside the Hyatt in Newport, Rhode Island before our presentation. I am on the left and on the right is Martin Dean from San Francisco.

Thought you'd enjoy seeing this photo of our eight-year-old son, Tate. He spotted your 'Toons' tie in your catalog and saved his own money to purchase it to wear at his violin recital. He certainly looked impeccable, and his playing that day was spot-on as well. I'm sure he'll join his Dad as a repeat customer. Thanks again.

I am writing to thank you for such a great collection of Bow Ties and the exemplary customer service. I constantly sing the praises of your web site, catalog, and staff and look forward to many more years of being a customer - maybe I'll stop in to say hi the next time I'm in Middlebury! I hope you enjoy the photo, everyone loves the Fiji from Bill's Private Stock. Thanks again.

My husband adores your bow ties and we buy one for almost every special occasion. We met in law school and our love affair with your company started with our first formal event. I wore a white dress with black polka dots and he wore the Bartender Polka dot bow tie to match. Later for his law school graduation, the assistant dean of our law school purchased Marc a beautiful yellow, light blue and navy stripe tie from your company. For our wedding this past January, Marc and I both agreed he had to wear one of your ties. He chose the Carmine bow tie to match our vineyard themed wedding... I don't think we will ever be able to celebrate a special event without one of your ties in the future!

We love your stuff. I have enclosed a great picture of our wedding - Oct. 14th, 2006 - where my husband is wearing one of your ties and cummerbunds. He got tons of compliments and the color was great with our entire theme.

Last fall, when I purchased two children's Boston Red Sox bow ties for my niece's April cummerbunds, the person who took the order asked if we could send a picture of the boys. Here are ring bearers, Nolan and Justin.
The bow ties were a hit at the wedding since most of the guests were Boston fans and the bride and groom met at a Red Sox game.
Thank you for helping to make the wedding event complete, since I (the Aunt) had the assignment of making the ring bearer pillows and finding the Boston bow ties. He got tons of compliments and the color was great with our entire theme.
—Diane P.
A few years ago, I bought a beautiful red silk freestyle butterfly bow tie from your web site but never got around to taking the time to learn how to tie it up. I resolved to finally do so for this holiday season. Using your outstanding instructional videos, I was able to practice and then wear the tie on Christmas. It was a big hit wherever I went and especially so with my elderly mother-in-law who couldn't keep her eyes off me and even snapped the attached picture for posterity. So, in closing, thanks for the great tie and videos that helped transform this year's festivities into one I'll not soon forget.
—Lawrence B.
Here is a copy of our Christmas card photo. Everyone simply loved it, especially our new daughter Emily tugging at my Cranberry Beau Tie. I have been a most satisfied customer for over three years now. I just wish I had known about your place when my wife, Jennifer and I were on our honeymoon in Vermont. And to think that we came within thirty miles of you and didn’t come for a visit. Of course we’ll know better next time. Thanks again for all of your wonderful products.

The Black Silk Jacquard Butterfly Jumbo 18" worked perfectly on my 6" 4" 215lbs frame! I took the goods to Romania for our wedding. (My wife Ingé was born and raised in Romania). The large bow and availability of 18" neck size was a necessity for me! Thanks BT of Vermont!

I am a long time bow tie wearer and almost all of my ties are from Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont. Dr. McTigue and I were Executive Assistants to Dr. Koop during his tenure as US Surgeon General... Because of Dr. Koop's identification with the bow tie I can think of no more fitting a tribute to America's health hero.
Thank you Beau Ties.

I am the director of the Oncology service at Washington University in St. Louis. For the past few years I have designated one day each month "BOW TIE DAY". I bring in about 20 ties from home and teach the residents how to tie a bow tie. The response from the residents, other physcians, nurses, and especially are patients has been very positive. This has now become quite a tradition at our university. I have a bow tie day for the interns and residents once a month to tech them how to tie a bow tie. I thought you'd enjoy the picture.

Thank you for shipping my bowties as quickly as you did! I had ordered a tie and pocket square for a benefit auction I was to conduct this past weekend- the 25th anniversary of the BI-LO Charity Classic. This is the largest grossing one day golf tournament in the United States, so I had to be dressed to impress... and the Mozart bowtie and pocket square did the trick- and also impressed Gary Player in the process!

Thanks for the great service. The Groom is wearing a traditional tie and the wedding party, father of bride and father of groom are all wearing custom made bow ties matching the bridesmaid dresses. Submitted by father of groom Dr. Sean K. who wears bow ties daily.

I'm just writing to say thanks. My dad has worn only clip-on bow ties since before he was married, but had not been able to find them in stores since before he retired. I was delighted to find your website this December, but it didn't allow the 2-3 weeks extra time to create clip-on bow ties out of the traditional ones. I spoke to someone on the phone, and they were able to hurry my order a bit.
My dad was delighted when his 2 new ties showed up the day before Christmas Eve. So was my mother. He's over 80, but stands 6 feet tall with silver hair. Many folks and the pastor at church instantly recognize him as the guy with the bow tie. Now they will recognize him as the guy with the classy new bow ties.
Thank you to those who took my order and those who made them into clip ons in a hurry and got them on their way. He was impressed by both the quality and style of your ties, and your business model which allows you to provide a selection of products which some, but perhaps not millions, very much want. He wore red Christmas Eve, and stripes the Sunday after. He looked, as the Irish say, simply grand in both...

Here in Silicon Valley, where even CEOs wear open collars, a bow tie really turns heads.
My collection of beautiful, quirky and whimsical Beau Ties helps me to express my individuality with a perfect balance of professional elegance and cheerful panache. I can't begin to tell you how many compliments I've received (particularly for your designer ties), or how much more confident and dignified I feel when I put one on. Whether I'm going formal with a conservative pattern or feeling waggish in a pictorial print, Beau Ties make every day just a little bit brighter. Keep up the great work!

I am attaching a couple of pictures from my son's wedding, at the Cloisters at The One and Only Club & Resort in the Bahamas. I was unfortunately, or fortunately the only one wearing your ties that weekend.
As my wife and I hosted the rehearsal dinner I sported your Maghara with a sports coat. I escorted the "Mother of the Groom" wearing your Chestnut Jacquard. Your bow ties garnered compliments from all guests at both events. I have since purchased formal bow ties and have worn them at events throughout the Holiday season.
Thanks for introducing me to this fine fashion statement.

I thought you all might be interested in these photos, taken at my wedding this past Saturday, April 5, 2009, in Lockhart, Texas ("the barbecue capital of Texas"). We were the first couple to be married in the Dr. Eugene Clark library, the oldest continually operated public library in Texas and a gorgeous little building. We had to get the Lockhart City Council to pass an ordinance allowing for the use of the library for private functions so that we could have our wedding ceremony there.

When my son was born two years ago, one of the first things I said to my wife is that I couldn't wait until he could wear a bow tie.
Yesterday was Easter. It was the first time he wore a bow tie. I thought I would share this photograph of the two of us wearing your Rabbit Town bow tie.
Thank you for the wonderful ties.

I have been buying and wearing your ties now for several years. I went to graduate school in Vermont and love the people and the state, and I enjoy the thought of supporting a small Vermont business especially when they make a great product. I am writing to share a couple of pictures of one of your ties; Bourbon Street. My gal, Jennifer, and I attended the Bacchus Bash, which is the party after the Mardi Gras Bacchus parade. It was held at the convention center in New Orleans. The party and the tie were a smash!
Thank you and keep up the good work!

Who says California style is just shorts and flip flops? Even though I grew up and still live in Southern California, I like to dress well and I find bow ties help in a great way in any setting. I was struck by the Grant tie when I saw it on the website. A beautiful, snazzy little number. I was pleasantly surprised when I paired it up with a dark-colored shirt. Seeing that you have a great selection encourages me try new looks.

Even in sunny San Diego, I find the bow tie is a way to stand out. I've definitely gotten compliments on my bow ties and they've added flair to my outfits, whether in an office setting, a night out, or a day at Balboa Park. Here, my Altamaha River tie definitely catches the light and adds a nice dose of color anywhere I go. I love it! The colors are gorgeous.

We were married at the Round Barn Inn in Waitsfield, VT on 10/18/08. My husband, his groomsmen, ring bearer and my father were all outfitted in your fabulous beau ties and pocket squares for our wedding. It was such a pleasure working with your staff. Especially the patience while I asked numerous questions, took home swatches in an attempt to find the perfect match to bridesmaid dresses and my three stops into your store! Once I came upon the Classical Jacquard collection I was so happy to find a print that matched the Bridesmaids dresses perfectly. My husband wore the Purcell beau tie/pocket square and the rest were outfitted in the Bach. They looked great! (photos by Barrie Fisher)

Neither my husband nor my son will wear a straight tie — and your bow ties are the best. Unlike ties purchased at Joseph Bank, for example, yours don’t fray! Thank you for producing such creative, fun, and high-quality neck-wear for men. It's always a pleasure to peruse your website and see what you've come up with.

This photo, taken on October 16 in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio, is from the advanced section of the twenty-second annual Spencerian Saga, a workshop in ornamental penmanship that is run by Beau Ties customer and designer Michael Sull (lower right). Michael and I (top right) have both worn bow ties for many years and hold substantial collections of your products. Harvest Crittenden (at left in the second row from the bottom, wearing one of your scarves with the matching bow tie) had the idea of taking a group photo with everyone wearing a bow tie and holding a pipe (Michael being a pipe-smoker). Michael and I brought out the ties that we had with us and set about tying them on everyone, though two of the ladies did their own (very successfully, I might add). Every tie shown here is from Beau Ties, our preferred supplier.

My husband Hamilton Garner is an attorney and started wearing bow ties in undergrad. He worked as an assistant district attorney after he graduated from law school. When we had twin boys (Robert and William) in 2006, one of his former administrative assistants gave us bow ties from your company as baby gifts. We could not wait to let them wear them. Hamilton kept the bow ties in his top drawer and would pull them out every now and then hoping the boys would be able to wear them. For their two year old portraits they finally fit! We now have a 16X20 of this portrait in our dining room. Everyone comments on all of the my men in their bowties! An additional picture is also attached of them together.
Around town Hamilton is well known for his bow ties and so we are continuing the tradition with our little guys!

On campus I am well known for wearing a bow tie every day I teach. Usually it is a Beau Tie. At our annual religion department awards dinner, I was surprised when 6 students broke with the usual casual dress code and came not only wearing ties but bow ties. While I can’t claim they are all BeauTies, mine is. I love the Easter Eggs and wear them often during the Easter season. Later that evening, the seniors also surprised the faculty with gifts this year. Mine was, unsurprisingly, a new Beau Tie!

Happy Birthday, Bill!! I wish you many many more. Keep up the great work.
I was turned on to bow ties about 8 years ago when I was given a gift of some 50-year-old silk lovelies once owned by a southern Lawyer. I stumbled across your catalog shortly thereafter, and have had an undiminished love affair with your product since. Whenever I get a new catalog, I immediately sit down, peruse it, and circle everything I want (which ordinarily is most of what's displayed in the pages.) In fact, I get a catalog at home and at school in case my wife tries to hide it from me. (She thinks my collection is large enough, and I think I have hardly begun.) Between bow ties and books, I have barely any money left for food.
My students get extra credit for presentations when they wear a hand tied bow tie (including the girls!) Some of my teachers have gotten on board, and our school has offered your bow ties in our annual fundraising auction for the past 5 years, always with good success. Attached is a picture of two of my fellow students and me sporting the latest winnings from the fundraiser. The best dressed fellows in the school.

Some time ago I ordered some of your scraps to make a quilt for my doctor, who wears bow ties from your company. I finished and shipped the quilt today and thought you might like to see a picture.

In a place where bow ties are quite common (University of Virginia), your line of prints helps me stand out among the crowd. I garnered several compliments this past weekend at a wedding wearing the Bees bow tie.

I love your holiday bow ties. I am a letter carrier (mailman) and I wear them for some (not all) holidays. Here are a couple of pictures of me at work. The 4th of July Beau Tie I tend to wear a lot since I can wear most days anyway. My coworkers get a kick out of me wearing them. I think it breaks the monotony of wearing blue all the time.

My husband, Juan, has long enjoyed wearing your bow ties for work and special occasions; they have become his calling card. Our son Carter always watches his daddy intently when he gets ready in the morning and now asks when can we order him a couple of bow ties for him to wear? We recently enjoyed a family night out at the theater to see Mary Poppins and the boys sported two of your bow ties. Thanks for keeping my two favorite guys looking so great.

I started wearing these when I was about 3-4 years old, and, as an author of children's books, I wear them whenever I visit schools and the kids love them. Sometimes the whole school will wear paper bow ties!

I am pleased to inform you that I have received compliments when I wore the Fraser and Patrick Springs ties. Now this is not only from my beloved wife but from folks who saw me at social gatherings. Truly a rare thing these days for a guy who is just over 75. The comments usually range from: "How is your sacroiliac?" to "Can you still play golf" Answer: no sacroiliac problems and yes 3 times a week.[Golf that is.] As a retired jurist the Themis is still undercover whilst the Kentucky River Blue is about to make its debut. My wife likes it the best.

I love your bow ties! I am a flight attendant for a large international airline and often wear them on our flights. The patriotic and holiday ties are my favorites so I am eager to receive my order for Old Glory. The passengers inevitability compliment my bow ties and I am always happy to tell them about your website and Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont. I am also receiving a master's degree this spring and have ordered a bow tie to match my academic regalia for the commencement ceremony.

The bow tie is Dr. Moin's trademark which he's been wearing exclusively for over 20 years. He feels they are elegant and perfect for the dental profession because he can maintain a professional appearance without it hanging over the patient while he works. Dr. Moin owns over 80 bow ties and counting. He has one for every occasion which keeps his patients guessing which bow tie he'll wear next!

My wife bought me my first bow tie a few years back for Christmas. Since then, I have found different occasions and reasons to buy more of your bow ties. Last summer, my family and I traveled to China to be at my daughter’s wedding there. As I had worn a bow tie at her wedding here in the U.S., I found it fitting to buy a new tie for myself and one for my son-in-law to wear that day. Here I am with my new son-in-law.

Thought you might be interested in this photo taken in February in Springfield, MA. during the 26th annual Dead O' Winter Banquet of the Konkapot Angling Club. The Angling Club consists of 13 like-minded friends who get together each May for the last 26 years (sons and sons in law now join the club originals) for a weekend of fly fishing, food and spirits. We also meet each February for a family get together and certain of the members don tuxes for the occasion. Our 25th anniversary dinner was held at the American Museum of Fly Fishing in Manchester, VT just a 'stone's throw' from Middlebury. We are particularly partial to your fish and fishing themed ties and love those named for various rivers. A sporting rivers series might be very well received ( The Battenkill. The Ausable, The Henry's Fork or even the Konkapot and the Housatonic). Dave Modzelewski from Springfield, MA. is in the middle, Wally Lempart from Northampton, MA. on the left and Andy Burke from Cleveland, OH. is on the right.

I can't sing your praises enough! I have purchased several ties from you for my sons over the years and have never been disappointed. We recently purchased the Centennial Field tie because we love baseball. It arrived in great condition. My Grandfather wore bow ties and I have always loved them. I was thrilled to find your company. Here are the latest pictures of my son, Fletcher, wearing one of your ties.
