Need a source for bow ties with truly distinctive patterns? Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont offers both toned-down and eye-popping designer creations guaranteed to draw attention and praise!

The company specializes in handmade bow ties, neckties and accessories (cummerbunds, pocket squares, cravats, scarves and more) that are made in America. It’s long been one of our favorite sources for ties.

Headquartered in Middlebury, Vermont, this family-owned business started over 20 years ago when founder, Bill Kenerson, couldn’t find a supplier of good bow ties. He bought fabric, hired local women to make ties—and a business was born. Increasing numbers of bow tie lovers discovered Beau Ties, and the business flourished.

Current owners Dave Kramer and Dave Mutter, both Kellogg School of Management grads and close pals, bought the rapidly growing company in 2012 after leaving their traditional jobs at J.P. Morgan and McKinsey & Company, respectively. They’ve expanded the lines, added exciting new products and remained true to the company’s local roots.

“The Daves,” as they’re commonly referred to, are passionate about Beau Ties’ commitment to creating the best handmade bow ties in America. They offer top-quality service to an ever-growing and loyal fan base.
