Sailboat Bay - Neckties
An entire flotilla of light blue sailboats scud along in full rig on yellow woven silk. Let's hope they all know exactly what they are doing and where the finish line is!
The Sailboat Bay Necktie is Self-tipped.
Handcrafted in Middlebury, Vermont.
Our extra-long standard-width neckties, as well as all of our Slim and Skinny neckties are customized and made to order. Please review our return policies carefully.
My husband loves to sail, and he loves this tie. The subtle fabric design is perfect.
Actually, I purchased eleven of the Sailboat Bay ties, ten bow and one four-in-hand to be worn by family members at our 50th wedding anniversary celebration in August, which, needless to say, we cancelled. We have two sons-in-law, one of whom is just not a bow tie guy, hence the long one! We have five grandsons, three of whom are not fully grown; they now have two bow ties each, one which is an appropriate size for the celebration which was not and then one for adulthood. The eleventh is mine which I plan to wear on many an occasion.
I ended up placing three orders over a period of several months as my ideas grew. Stacie Vail helped me with the first and third orders; she was a joy to work with, and she is an excellent representative for your company. She takes care of your customer. I must add I am really fortunate you did not sell so many of that pattern that I could not order the 58" "long tie".
You might ask why a sailboat pattern. I have had a wonderful time teaching the three grandsons who are still kids how to sail; we have done this at a Father/Son camp in northern Wisconsin over a period of four summers, the fifth would have been 2020, but.... I first went to that camp in 1954 and learned to sail. I now have 12 years on the books, four each as camper, sailing counselor and Grandpa.
The other two grandsons are in Seattle, and there is still hope the bug might bite them some day, but they are good sports and were quite willing to sport the bow.
