Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very fine tie. Lovely silk barathea fabric. Goes with the three-button, barathea vest. If one is looking for the shinier satin finish silk, this isn't it. Seems the listing should mention the fabric type. This tie would not go especially well with a tuxedo having satin lapels. Very nicely with barathea and quite well enough with grossgrain. I rate the fit "excellent," because it will adjust to my size. Anyone with a neck larger than the maximum 18 inches would likely rate it "poor." Smallest adjustment is 13 1/2 inches. Seems the listing should mention the size range. Adjustment is done by inserting a small metal "T" into one of series of small buttonholes, on the neck side of the tie. There will be no visible hardware, even with a wing collar. The tie is great. I give the less than informative listing "fair," because I'm feeling charitable. September 7, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Standard equipment I am an 18 inch neck, and that is the limit for this adjustable unit. January 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic Choice If you're going out for a formal event, why not pick up the classic version of the bow tie from the oldest retailer in the US? This tie makes a wonderful knot and doesn't slip or need tightened throughout the evening. The fabric has a good feel in your hands that lets you know the high quality you've purchased. If you want to feel like a million bucks then this should be your first choice. September 29, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tie Every time i wear this tie i get compliments, which is interesting because it's "just a black tie." This tie is so much more. I put it on and instantly feel like James Bond. The material, shine, luster, cut and finish are all perfect. All you need to do is tie it and you will look like a million bucks! October 8, 2009

Rated 5 out of 5 Bow Tie Review As always this Bow Tie is in Brooks Brother's tradition of great quality and craftmanship. I would reccommenrd this product very highly. April 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfection Personified For those Brooks Brothers devotees who have religiously followed my recommendations in recent months, I first wish to thank you and then praise your fine judgement ( Nota Bena: Look for anything marked PTD47 elsewhere in this website) and thirdly recommend to you this absolutely outstanding bow tie. Without any doubt, this is the perfect bow tie. I highly recommend you purchase it and spend the next decade or two relishing the compliments you will receive each time you wear it. It is one outstanding bow tie and you will well deserve the applause you and it receives from all of your admirers in the coming years. May 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by new tuxedo i am a small man and i needed a new tuxedo. i needed a special order. Mens Warehouse in Vernon Hills IL refused to special order a tuxedo. i went to Brooks Brothers in Northbrook IL and the salesman was more than happy to special order a new tuxedo. Then tuxedo and all of the accessories are great November 3, 2010

Answer: 
Satin. The black bow tie in the Black Fleece collection is a gross grain and turns out an excellent knot as an alternative.

The bow at its widest is about 2" or so. The bow for black formal wear ties, such as this, is usually is smaller than the 2 and a half inch or more for striped and patterned ties worn with less formal attire.

Answer: 
Hello Elpocho,

Brooks Brothers bowties length is 18 inches. However, the width is different for certain types of bowties. For example; the butterfly bowtie width is 2 ¼ inches and point end bowtie width is 1 ¾ inches. While we are on the subject of neckwear, the length of a regular tie (including slim) is 58 inches. Extra long ties length is 62 inches.
Width of regular tie is 3 ¼ inches and slim tie is 2 5/8 inches.

Answer: 
All of the self-tie bow ties have some sort of size adjuster. The main label ones have actual measurement notches and the social primer ones are more trial and error.
