Rated 3 out of 5 Looks Good from Outside, but Inside...
Admittedly this is my first bow tie purchase, so I don't have a lot to go by. However, as far as ties are concerned, this has a very luxurious feel and a nice sheen to it.
It is a self-tie bow tie, and when done up, makes for a very nice complement to any formal occasion. Given how soft it is though, I did notice it seemed to relax very easily, and needed quite a bit of constant adjustment.
Speaking of adjustment, given that it is self-tie, the back of it is adjusted by 'clipping' it onto the right neck width hole, either loosening or tigthening the fit. This is where I found the most issues with the bow tie.
When I first recieved it, it was a little frayed from within. The adjustment holes had threads sticking out, but I simply snipped them off and thought nothing of it. But the more I used the tie, the more frayed it would become. On every use, when adjusting the width, more frays would stick out, and were unavoidable no matter how gentle I tried to be.
This clearly would be a concern for the longevity of the product, as after only wearing it a couple of times, I've probably worn out half the life span of the tie from adjustment alone.
Overall, it is a pretty sleek and nice looking bow tie, but I do question the overall construction of it.

Not to big, not to small. Fits perfectly with the narrow peak lapels of my JCrew tux jacket. Not floppy, very rigid once you get it tightened. Also, square end is a nice touch of something extra to give a little bit of your own style.
