Ties for Beta Theta Pi

We are excited to now be an official licensee to create branded neckwear for dozens of greek organizations. While still in production, we already wanted to show off some of our favorite designs. Below are digital design spec sheets and photos of actual fabric swatches for ties we made for Beta Theta Pi.

Design #1: Classic Repp Stripes with Woven Crest

One of our favorite design out of close to a hundred different fraternity designs is this classic repp striped tie we created for Beta Theta Pi. The repp textured silk fabric is decorated with a detailed embroidered crest at the tip of the tie. This same crest is embroidered again in a slightly larger scale on the back of the tie. The matching bow ties feature the same striped design but instead of a single crest, have an embroidered pattern of the Beta Theta Pi griffin. Each tie is handmade from 100% silk and will be available later this Summer here at Bows-N-Ties.com

Design #2: Crested Skinny Ties & Bow Ties

A bit more modern is the second design we created for Beta Theta Pi. The neckties are made with a skinnier cut of 2.75 inches (7cm) and feature a modern striped design paired with a geometric pattern of embroidered Beta Theta Pi crests. The matching bow ties show the same design that has been scaled down slightly to better compliment the bow tie style. These ties are expected to retail for under $20 with further group discounts likely being available as well.

Polka dots and plaids are in our menswear wheelhouse. We love this creatively contemporary look by @thedapperjuan who pairs a textured blazer with a plaid shirt, a polka dot tie and a floral pocket square. His philosophy is one we fully endorse. “You don’t have to spend thousands to look like a million.”  This bold approach to accessorizing is wildly chic and totally inspiring making it our featured Look Of The Week. Sometimes, less is more but in this case, we can’t stop swooning over this brilliant assortment of accessories.
