Our Most Popular Wooden Men’s Accessories

Posted by Two Guys Bow Ties on 25th Mar 2016

We often get asked the question when a customer of ours is looking for a gift for a friend or family member, “What are some of your most popular styles?” So we thought we’d take a few moments and answer that question for you guys!

First up, is our line of Wood-brimmed Fedoras. Currently, we offer four different colors (navy, black, grey, and brown) in four sizes (Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large), all featuring a Walnut Wood Brim. In regards to our most popular style, we’d have to say the grey and navy ones would be at the top.

Next up, is our lines of Skyline wooden bow ties. Though we do offer a custom option for these ties (therefore any wood type we offer can be used), we offer four specific wood species as main products on our website. These include: Sapele, Walnut, Maple, and Padauk. Though our most popular wood type is Walnut (mainly due to lower cost and familiarity), our favorites are either Maple or Sapele as the engravings are a bit more consistent in visibility and wood grain.

In regards to outfit combos, some our bestsellers include: the “Arthur Combo,” “The Classic Combo,” and the “Marion Combo.” The 3-piece Arthur Combo (left) features Rosewood and Orange Crosshatch fabric. The Classic Combo (center) includes The Classic wooden bow tie made with Canary wood and Silver Silk fabric and the matching pocket square. The Marion bow tie in the third combo is considered an “inlay” wooden bow tie, which is created from two separate types of wood. This base of this style is Walnut wood, while the stripe pattern is created from Maple wood. The rest of the combo is made up of the matching Heather grey fabric and the Hampton lapel flower.

Here’s a look at a few of our most popular wooden bow ties this year. “Calvin” is one of our most popular painted styles and “Harvey” has been a favorite since the very beginning. The Bocote wood used in creating “Frank” is a sure win for anyone who loves unique and exotic wood grains, versatility for more formal affairs, and a high-end looking accessory. The “Floyd,” on the other hand, is front-etched with a plaid pattern and is easily our best-selling bow tie. It’s neutral heather grey centerpiece and walnut wood make it versatile, laid-back, and easy to match with almost any ensemble.

The most recently launched styles are shown above. Jack is our newest addition to our stock wooden bow tie collection, as the last three were all welcomed at the same time. They’ve been very well received as all four of them continue to climb their way to the top of our list of most popular bow ties.

Our lapel flowers have a handful of different petal designs as well as wood types. Currently we offer them in: Maple, White Oak, Wenge, Walnut, Rosewood, Padauk, and Purple Heart wood. At the top of our favorites are easily the all-wood type “Jamestown” made with Walnut, the Rosewood and Navy center “Charleston,” and the bright 8-petal “Cambridge” in White Oak.

How to Fold a Wooden Pocket Square

Posted by Two Guys Bow Ties on 15th Apr 2016

There are several ways to fold our two different styles of wooden pocket squares. Today, we’re going to show you how to do a handful of them. 

1. One Point Fold

Step 1: Lay the pocket square on a flat surface with the wooden pattern facing up. 
Step 2: Find the center line of the pattern (four rows on each side) and fold the pocket square in half.
Step 3: Find the center point of the pattern (the top of the fold, 4 columns on each side) and pick the pocket square up off the table. Then take one side, make an inverted triangle until it looks like photo #4.
Step 4: Repeat the step above to the other side until it looks like photo #6. 
Step 5: Fold the two wings towards the enter until they overlap.

Once you’re done with Step 5, fold the bottom selvedge edge underneath so the pocket square is half the depth. After finishing that, simply situate it into your suit or vest pocket and you’re all set! 

2. Puff Fold

Step 1: Lay the pocket square on a flat surface with the wooden pattern facing up.
Step 2: Find the center point (4 rows x 4 columns) and lift the pocket square off the surface. 
Step 3: With one hand holding that center point, use your other hand to gather the rest of the pocket square where the wooden pattern meets the remaining fabric. 
Step 4: Lay the pocket square gently on your surface and fold the bottom portion up towards the midline of poof.

After finishing that, simply situate it into your suit or vest pocket and you’re all good to go! 

3. Square Fold

Step 1: Lay the pocket square on a flat surface with the wooden pattern facing down.
Step 2: Fold over one side of the pocket square so two columns of the wood pattern are visible.
Step 3: Fold the other side of the pocket square so one column of the wood patter is showing.
Step 4: Fold the edge without selvedge up to meet the edge with the selvedge. 

Once you finish Step Four, fold the wooden edge up past the selvedge edge and you’re ready to situate it in your suit or vest pocket!

4. Square Fold (For Dot Pattern)

Step 1: Step 1: Lay the pocket square on a flat surface with the wooden pattern facing down.
Step 2: Fold one side over to the 2/3 line. 
Step 3: Fold the other side until it’s just short of the folded edge. 
Step 4: Fold the pocket square in half by bringing the non-selvedge edge up against the selvedge edge.

Once you finish Step Four, fold the fabric edge over, making sure it doesn’t go beyond the selvedge edge. After that, you’re ready to situate it in your suit or vest pocket!
