    Thanks but I thought Kentucky Colonel bowtie were longer
  4. I am sure they com in mutiple lengths. If the one you get it too long for your taste you can cut & sew it shorter.

    They go by String Tie or Floppy Bow Tie. I saw an older gentleman wear one about 2 months ago. He had on bib over-alls and a white shirt. In spite of that he looked dressed for work, he looked good with that string tie. Since I work in a city building, he must've tied it on real quick to come inside and conduct city business.
  6. String tie is what I would call it. Very Victorian. You see them a lot in old cowboy movies.

    I see, so I'll just cut it as I want to have it.
  9. What you might also be able to do is get a length of ribbon about 7/8 to 1 inch wide & use that to make your own bow tie.
