Custom Woven Ties and Printed Scarves

A couple weeks ago we were contacted by Florida private school “Agape Christian Academy” for their neckwear needs. The client was looking for a red tie with narrow white diagonal stripes that show their logo towards their bottom. Since the ties were intended for staff as well as students, different sizes were needed. While boys are wearing these neckties, the girls needed to have a matching scarf. After listening to what the client was looking for, our design team created the following two options for tie and scarf:

Custom Logo School NecktiesCustom Logo School Uniform Scarf

The client liked the design without further edits and we started weaving the fabrics for the necktie as well as printing the fabrics for the matching scarves. 45 days after the order was placed, all ties and scarves were delivered to our client in Florida. Below are two detailed photos of the actual tie and scarf. Should you be interested in custom neckties, scarves, bow ties, or pocket squares, then we would love to hear from you. Simply fill out this request form and we will be in touch within 24 hours.

Custom Logo Neckties, Bow Ties, and Pocket Squares

Logo neckties, bow ties, pocket square
We recently had the opportunity to create a set of neckwear and pocket squares for a client in Nigeria. The client wanted their logo (left) incorporated on 2 different necktie designs. In addition the client was interested to create complementing bow ties as well as a pocket square – all matching in color and complementing in design. After discussing the project with our design team, we created the first set of suggestions for our client:

woven logo neckties custom design
The customer liked design #1 and #2 the most, but requested that the logo on design #1 to be larger and centered on the tip of the tie. Of course, this was no problem. Below is the updated design #1 which the customer choose as neckties as well as bow ties. Since the logo on the bow tie was smaller in size, we had to create a different set of woven fabrics for necktie as well as the bow tie:

Since our customer also wanted to order design #2 from above, we (per customer request), a set of matching pre-tied bow ties. Below are the detailed design spec sheets indicating the exact scale and pantone colors:

Men’s Guide to Tie Width Trends


Variations of Men's Necktie Widths

Necktie widths can say a lot about your fashion and style preferences as well as a glance into the era in which you grew up. We created this guide for six different widths, made popular in different decades and many are still popular today!


Kipper Tie

You might recognize the name Kipper Tie if you were around for the 40’s, 70’s, or the short reappearance in the early 90’s. If you can’t distinguish the name, you may recall the style. These ties could measure anywhere from 4.5” – 6” wide and sported loud colors and designs. If you like to wear your favorite animal prints and hobbies, you might enjoy this vintage style.


Traditional Tie 

The “standard” width for ties has varied throughout the years. During the 80’s, a traditional width would have been closer to 3.75”- 4” wide and is still a go-to by many tie purists today. If you’re into large paisley designs or plant life, there is a good chance you might find some classic items you fancy.


New Standard Tie

If you prefer your ties to be a happy medium all the way around – size and design – you might enjoy the new standard width of 3.25” – 3.5”. Made popular in the early 1950’s and popular still today, business professionals wore this width in solid colors.

Solid Color Ties


Narrow Tie

Are you leaning on the trendy fence, but not quite ready to commit? The invention of the narrow, but not skinny, tie blurs the line of past and present. Commonly around 2.75” – 3” wide, it could pass for a skinny tie for some and yet a standard width for others. If you’re indecisive, this might be your next best friend.

See one of our favorites here.


Skinny Tie

If you were inspired by the style of the Beatles or are hip on the current trends, the skinny tie is most likely your favorite piece to wear with a tailored suit. Originally made popular in the late 50’s and early 60’s and crafted from leather or knit wool. The skinny tie is around 1.5” – 2” wide and is back in style with unending colors and designs for round two in its claim to fame.  


Bolo Tie

The skinniest of skinnies, the Bolo Tie is a simple cord or leather string with metal ends with a decorative clasp or piece of jewelry. Known for its appearance in old Westerns, this item is still popular among the southwest states. If your style is simple, understated, yet determined, consider giving this a try.

Custom Logo Necktie with Sailing Pennant

By now we have created custom ties and scarves for almost any industry in any state and dozens of countries. While most of our custom requests come from restaurants, airlines, transportation, government, and the religious sector, we recently had the honor to design a tie for the Branford Yachtclub in Hamden, CT. The customer was looking for simple and classic striped design that incorporated the club’s sailing pennant. Our designer went to work, and created the first batch of design suggestions below:

The first 4 designs above show different front designs of the necktie, while the option “B” shows the possibility to embroider the pennant also on the back tipping on the tie. Eventually our customer opted for design 1 witout the addition of the backside embroidery:

Custom Self-Tied Bow Ties

Case Study: Custom Self-Tied Bow Ties for Confetti Foundation

A few weeks ago we were contacted by the Confetti Foundation, a Rhode Island based non-profit with the mission to supply birthday parties for children who have spend their birthday in the hospital, to help create a unique custom printed bow tie as part of a fundraiser. Designer Cayleigh Hopkins created the design below excessively for The Confetti Foundation. Needless to say, we at feel honored to have been entrusted to create fancy self-tied bow ties based on this unique design.


We then applied this design to our digital bow tie template below. To ensure a proper color match, our fabric designers matched the digital design by Cayleigh Hopkins to the actual pantone numbers.


Once the design was approved, we created a sample which arrived just 2 weeks later at our office. Ourselves as well as our customer was happy the the result and we then went straight into bulk production. In just 30 days after the order was submitted we received the entire bulk production.

Case Study: Custom Logo Neckties and Bow Ties

custom ties and matching bow ties
Every day our custom neckwear division helps our clients create custom neckwear for their group, staff, organization, or event. While we create thousands of designs each year, we pick out some of our favorite jobs and present them as a case study here on our blog. This time we are featuring a custom woven logo necktie and bow tie we created for VCOM.

Digital Design Templates

Our customer required that a certain red pantone color (PMS208) would be matched exactly on each of the designs. They also wanted two different striped neckties in a red and blue color palette as well as one matching bow tie design to compliment one of the ties. After several edits, our customer picked out the following digital design that our design team created for them:
