Put New Life Into Your Past Favorites
Recently our founder, Steve, was thumbing through some of his natty grandfather’s vintage four-in-hands that he inherited. Steve loved the unique patterns, but not the wide, dated shape. He questioned what other folks did with the great Brooks Brothers, Hermes, and Ferragamo ties from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, in perfectly good condition, but too wide to wear with a modern cut sport coat or suit.
Cue the hypothetical cartoon light bulb?
Most folks are not afforded the luxury of retaining a full-time necktie seamstress on staff, so Steve wanted Bird Dog Bay to offer a service that would transform old ties into narrower, updated versions. Just give us a few days for our seamstress to rebuild them from scratch into Bird Dog Bay’s standard 3.25″ width. We are able to offer the same service for boys’ ties. If you’d like a tie rebuilt into a boys’ length, simply note that with your shipment.
