Make it special, make it unique and choose a custom designed, handcrafted Bow Tie.

Product Description

Tell me your ideal colour combination or the colour and style of suit/outfit you want to wear your Bretels with or maybe just your wedding colour story. Whatever your request/idea, write it in the order notes & I will knit a selection of swatches to email or post* to you to consider and choose from. This service includes 2 rounds of swatches.

If your Bretels/Suspenders are for a Wedding or special event, why not have the date, your initials or a personal symbol hand embroidered onto the back section? Just put your requested detail in the order notes.

The Bretels are knitted in Cotton & Elastic with an optional Contrast Back feature.  Each pair is knitted by Alice & have hidden elastic strapping ensuring the all important SNAP back when wearing.

Should you be looking for a set of Bespoke pieces (3+ pieces across the range) please contact me and we can discuss a discount package price.

This is a UNISEX product, suitable for all.

  • Award Winning

    I received an award from my university to celebrate my career achievements. I knew I needed something special to make an impact. Alice knitted me a bowtie in my school colours. Sent her the crest and she did the rest. It's an incredible piece and I got so many compliments during the evening.
