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.”

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!!!!

I had really high expectations after reading the reviews, but I've never been this embarrassed after giving a gift. The metallic center arrived scratched, but most of my issues seem to result from sloppy execution:

(1) there is extra metal rolled up along the edges of the metal from when it was cut that no one thought to buff or sand down;
(2) one side of the bow tie is literally longer than the other;
(3) one shorter side is ALSO WIDER;
(4) the wood is rough along the top, bottom, and back, and it is SHARP along the edges; and
(5) the natural variations in the wood created a color block effect which could have looked nice, except it was uneven and further exaggerated the overall asymmetry.

My brother thought it looked nice from a distance, but neither of us can get over how little effort went into the making of the particular bow tie we received.

      Comments about WOOD BOW TIE:

      The photo is misleading. The two triangle wood pieces that make it look like a bow are not the same size as each other, so it looks lopsided. I bought this to give as a gift, but am not comfortable giving a gift that will never get worn so i now have to find a new gift to give instead. not helpful.

              Fun quirky gift for a guy. not everyone can pull off the wooden bow tie, so make sure the recipient is someone who likes fun bowties and has a fun fashion sense.

                Perfect with a tuxedo shirt and jeans. I wear it instead of a necklace. I have the wooden neck tie as well. For a women these become neck ornaments... Love Them!

                  The wood is beautiful. I thought from the picture that it was a silver, however it was plastic. Not a big deal in grand scheme of things. In fact it will probably keep its color longer. Very cool gift for ages 18 to 118.

                  I had ordered it for my husband for our wedding and he absolutely loved it! The only problem that we could see was that the bow tie would droop down even when it was tight on the neck. If the bow tie would've sat straight up it wouldn't just been perfect!

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I had ordered this product about 4 days before my wedding and i had electrd for a two day shipping period to have enough time to have it before the weeding and the shipment ended up falling thorough. I was reimbursed for the shipping but was very I unsatified with the overal delivery.
