Bob Kane - Comic Book Design, Red Cedar and Maple Wood Bow Tie
Created to play well in all the Comic Book Extravaganzas and ComicCons, and named in honor of the Batman's creator Bob Kane. Engraved in birch and lauan mahogany woods. Classic comic book onomatopoeia are the focus of this design.
Red Cedar is a new favorite in the shop. The cedar wood is a reddish or violet-brown with few yellowy cream streaks and periodic with dark brown knots and, of course, that wonderful distinct fragrance. The red cedar adds a vintage touch to our wood family.
Maple is one of the lightest and brightest woods. Wood bow ties made from maple have a brighter finish and a wide, less distinct grain, so we use maple for bow ties with engravings that demand lighter coloration.
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.
