Weston - Dark Wenge, Specialty Wood Bow Tie
Weston is part of our Specialty Wood Collection the is created out of a very dark and distinct wenge wood. Wenge is very visually striking in it’s chocolatey brown coloring. Backed with mahognay, this design is perfect for black tie and tails.
African Wenge is medium brown, sometimes with a reddish or yellowish hue, with nearly black streaks. Upon application of a wood finish (particularly an oil finish) the wood can become nearly black. The grain is straight, with a very coarse texture. Low natural luster. Usually pronounced WHEN-gii or WHEN-ghay, the wood has excellent strength and hardness properties, and is also dark enough to be used as a substitute for ebony.
This custom bow tie is part of the Slim Collection. Bow ties from this collection use the Straight (a.k.a Batwing) shape style – this shape is thin and symmetrical, which makes for a sleek, clean impression.
Approx. 1.5" tall, 4.5" wide, .5" thick. All our adult size ties come with an adjustable tuxedo strap, fitting 13" - 24" in diameter.
