Ties for Sigma Alpha Mu

Want to show your greek spirit? Then we at Bows-N-Ties have now been selected as the official licensee to create greek branded products. Featured here is a new design we created for Sigma Alpha Mu which will be available later in July as neckties and bow ties.

Design #1:

For the first design our designers took the SAM greek letters and arranged them to create a check pattern design. Imprinted on 100% silk, these fabrics are of extremely high quality. The neckties feature a classic width of 3.1 inches while the matching silk bow ties will come as a self-tie style.

Design #2:

For the second design we were inspired by a classic diagonal striped design using the SAM signature colors of purple and gold. A detailed Sigma Alpha Mu crest is embroidered at the tip of the tie. Made in satin microfiber these ties look and feel like a pure silk tie but will be available for under $20.

Ties for Sigma Alpha Epsilon

We at Bows-N-Ties have been approved as an official licensee to produce greek branded neckwear and we are excited to showcase some of the new fraternity tie collections that will be arriving later this July. Each week we are showcasing 3-4 new fraternity ties and for today we are giving you a preview for neckties and bow ties we made for Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

Design #1:

For the first design our designers created a geometric pattern using the greek SAE letters and colors. To ensure bright and accurate colors, we printed this design on 100% silk using a modern digital fabric printer. The neckties feature a classic width of 3.1 inches while the bow ties will come as a classic self-tie style. Not sure how to tie a bow tie? Not a problem. Each SAE bow tie will ship with detailed bow tie tying instructions!

Design #2:

For the second SAE fraternity tie we chose a modern skinny repp-stripe design. The slimmed down width, the repp textured fabric, as well as the embroidered SAE coat of arms create a preppy modern accessory.

We at Bows-N-Ties are excited to have been approved as a fully licensed designer and manufacturer of greek branded neckties and bow ties. While our first collection of fraternity ties is currently still in production, we already wanted to give you a preview of some of our favorite designs. Below are two necktie and bow tie designs we designed for Pi Kappa Phi which is expected to be in stock come later this Summer.

The first design we created for Pi Kappa Phi features a bright color palette and an all-over design of their more contemporary logo. The fabrics are made from a 100% printed silk created rich colors and sheen. A fantastic summer tie and bow tie!

Design #2

For the 2nd design our designers wanted to create something a bit more fashion forward. That being said, we opted for a slimmed down cut of 2.75 inches. The design of woven coat of arms paired with a repp stripe design gives this tie a preppy and trendy look. A great tie for any fitted suit or blazer.

Ties for Pi Kappa Alpha

As a fully licensed manufacturer of greek branded ties, we are excited to give you a sneak preview of these 4 designs we created for Pi Kappa Alpha. About two weeks ago we received the fabric swatches of these designs, and after ensuring that all details match Pi Kappa Alpha’s branding, we have now submitted them for production. We expect to have these 4 designs in stock later this Summer with pricing ranging from $15-$30.

Design #1

For the the first design our designers chose Pi Kappa Alpha’s signature reds and gold to create this classic silk tie with embroidered greek lettering. A classic tie width of 3.1 inches paired with classic colors and pattern create a timelessly elegant accessory. The detailed embroidered logo on the back adds another unique detail that you won’t find on other Pi Kappa Alpha branded ties. The matching bow ties will be made as a self-tied style just like the true bow tie aficionado requests. This collection will likely retail for $25-$30.
