Named after the steampunk horror author Mary Shelley who wrote the Gothic novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.
The "Shelley II" is a piece of kinetic steampunk art, this is not your professor's bow tie.
A laser engraved cherry with red oak wooden gears, and an industrial design mahogany background bow tie shape brings this classic steampunk design together.
Cherry is our favorite wood to engrave. Wood bow ties made from cherry have good contrast, so we use cherry for bow ties with intricately engraved designs. The great contrast and naturally large grain of cherry means that these bow ties are highly recognizable.
Red Oak is a lighter wood with a red tone and smaller grain. We use red oak for bow ties with big, bold designs that rely on outstanding shapes.
Mahogany has a deeper, more vibrant color than walnut, and it has a small, straight grain. We use this dark wood for those unique bow ties that call for great contrast and bold patterns.
This custom bow tie is a part of the Club Round Collection. This collection uses the Rounded shape style – reminiscent of white-tuxedo casino dress, this nontraditional style has unique rounded ends, and is quickly becoming one of the most popular styles
Approx. 1.5" tall, 4.5" wide, and .5" thick. All our adult size ties come with an adjustable tuxedo strap, fitting 13" - 24" in diameter.
