Chuck Blackburn is a lifelong bow tie fan. Decades ago, he owned a manufacturers’ rep business providing talored clothing as well as quality handmade neckwear, including bow ties, to many of the best traditional men’s specialty shops throughout the country.  He believes bow ties are not just a fashion option, but a personal lifestyle statement of a discerning individualist.
