Fit to be Tied.

Spread the word: wooden fashion accessories aren't just for lumberjacks anymore! This accessory is just right for the man with a unique personal style and a quirky sense of humor, who likes to keep things interesting, even when he dresses up.

Suffice to say, this is knot your average bow tie. This charming chop of neckwear is made from redwood beams, reclaimed from salvage yards in the San Francisco area. Once part of a barn or warehouse, planks are cut, sanded and varnished, leaving the wood's natural grain and coloring on display. Hewn pieces are then assembled in a charming bowtie shape. Individual panels are connected with an adjustable elastic band, which slips easily around the shirt collar for a comfortable fit. Handmade in San Francisco.

“Community is at the core of our business and life.”

The brothers that woodwork together, stay together. At least that’s the case for David and Christopher Steinrueck, the creative San Francisco duo that crafts wares from reclaimed wood. “Community is at the core of our business and life,” Chris says of their shop, which also offers woodworking classes. “[Our shop] supports our community, where we are able to be creative and make things by hand.” Chris considers that in itself a reason to celebrate: “Every day is a victory. We’re doing what we love and that feels pretty victorious!” But, he adds, “we also occasionally like to throw a good shop open-house party.”

      My friend LOVES bow ties and likes to stand out with his style. This bow tie is perfect if he wants to wear it to a formal event or if he just wants to wear it on a regular night out with friends. Either way, heads will turn because of how sleek and unique it is. Great gift for a great friend!

            I thought the bow tie was amazing and clever. However, my son, who is a soloist in his church and who loves bow ties, said it was just too weird for church. I'm sorry I spent so much money on a gamble. However, if I were a guy, I'd buy both of those ties!

              I wouldn't actually consider this an "everyday item", but for those special and "unique" occassions, this is a real conversation starter! Perfect gift for the guy who has everything.

                    Got this as a gift for my significant other.. He wore it that night to our Valentine's dinner... Very Hipsterish area.. Got complimented on it then.. & the waitress asked where I got it from, so she could get it as a gift for her boyfriend.

                    He wore it again, and got multiple compliments..

                    I was nervous it wouldn't fit, or was going to be uncomfortable or too bulky, but he loved it and said it was great..

                    This is definitely a unique bow tie! I had never seen it anywhere before. The only thing I was expecting a better quality of wood but it feels more like compressed wood so I'm not sure how long it will last due to the durrablility of the product.

                    Comments about WOOD BOW TIE:

                    This is a great idea and design, but for one basic error: You used the wrong species. I suppose you used redwood as it is light and a nice color, but it is very brittle. My first one showed up with a tip missing from the bow'e end. The customer service was beyond great, as they sent a replacement immediately. It also had a chip, albeit smaller.
                    Use a denser hardwood, which come in all sorts of colors, even purple (purpleheart). These will not break off so easily.
                    Love the idea though!!!!

                      Comments about WOOD BOW TIE:

                      I bought this as a gift for my brother-in-law as a gag gift. But it doesn't quite work as a gag gift or as a regular gift. It doesn't work as a gag because it has no visual "punch" when opened and it's quite small and kind of hard to tell what it is when first opened. And if given as a regular gift, it's probably not something that would actually be worn. The price is quite high for such a small piece but it is a handsome little wooden tie. It just lacks "identity."
