  6. These bowties are simply amazing and so well crafted. Very unique and will undoubtedly be a great conversation piece. My son was elated to receive it as a Christmas gift

  7. I ordered this bow tie for my daughter’s grandfather who wears bow ties religiously and it is PERFECT! The Earl engraving was pristine with the polka dot. The edges are tapered down so it’s not just a chunk of wood. The wood is smooth and the fabric is clean, beautiful, and neatly attached. It arrived in a timely manner in a great magnetic close box, so presentation is fantastic. It’s wonderful and he’s going to love it!

  8. We originally saw the wooden bow ties on Shark Tank and were immediately interested. My son wears bow ties regularly and was so excited to receive his first wooden one just in time for homecoming. Prompt delivery and the packaging was wonderful. The bow tie was light weight, comfortable and very stylish. We are very happy with the product and will be purchasing again. Thanks!

  9. I ordered one of the bow ties when they first were introduced and was impressed with the product so i ordered earl bow tie and once again an outstanding product!

  10. I haven’t officially worn these yet, as they are for my wedding, but just handling them and trying it on, they look great and look like great quality. Plus, they arrived very quickly. I expected them to take much longer. I am very happy with my purchase thus far!

Hardwood Feature: Canary Wood

Posted by Lacey Wilcox on 24th Sep 2014

Sourced from Central and South America, Canary wood is the medium of choice for wood workers across the globe. Featuring a pale yellow background streaked with an assortment of colors, Canary wood is as durable as it is beautiful. Because it is resistant to insects and is incredibly easy to work with, it is a popular wood choice for furniture items and decorative pieces.

Canary wood is definitely a favorite species of wood among our team. The streaks present within the wood allow for a variety of options as we shape and cut our wooden bow ties. Because it finishes so well, the sanding that is done by hand on each of our ties doesn’t take nearly as long as it does with our pieces made from other streaked woods like African Zebrawood.

Our lineup of wooden bow ties features several pieces hand crafted from this beautiful, exotic hardwood. They’re not only a favorite among our team, they’re also very popular with our customers.

The Classic is one of our best sellers. With this piece, we cut the tie so that the grain runs diagonally. The orange and red tones of the Canary wood are offset with a silver, silk centerpiece. It creates a look that is easily dressed up or down, and coordinates with a range of shirts and blazers.

The Harry is another popular Two Guys wooden bow tie. Like the Classic, the wood for this tie is cut with the grain running at a diagonal. When topped off with a gray denim center piece, it creates a piece that is uniquely beautiful and versatile. The gray denim gives this piece just enough edge to be bold and daring, but with a color palette that is sure to compliment your favorite dress shirt.

With the Harvey, the canary wood is cut to run horizontally. The piece is finished off with an eye catching green and blue silk plaid center. The final result is intriguing and striking all at the same time, and works well for any party or fun event.

Our Leon wooden bow tie pairs the warm red and orange tones of the Canary wood with a simple denim centerpiece. Its simple, distinct flair adds just a touch of dapper to any ensemble, and allows the beauty of the Canary wood to speak for itself. It will soon become one of your most essential pieces.

Do you dare to wear Canary wood? We’d love to hear how you pair this favorite hardwood with pieces from your wardrobe. Share your pairings in the comments below!

Skyline Wooden Bow Ties

Posted by Two Guys Bow Ties on 9th May 2016

Handmade right here in Oklahoma, this distinctive line of wooden bow ties have quickly become the most talked about style to date. Where hometown pride meets innovative style, each bow tie features a front-etched skyline of the city of your choosing.                

There are four main wood types we offer as a part of our stock designs. These include: Walnut, Maple, Sapele, and Padauk (pictured below from left to right). The Walnut and Padauk woods are paired with a neutral gray centerpiece, while the Maple and Sapele wood types feature an eye-catching blue fabric. All four pairings are specifically chosen to compliment the wood’s tone and natural grain, as well as their unique variations. You can find these styles on our website by clicking here.

However, similar to our custom bow tie builder on our website, we also have a page where you are able to choose your own wood type, skyline, as well as the center fabric to completely customize your cityscape wooden bow tie to make the perfect gift for someone you love or to match a specific outfit in your wardrobe. The link to design your custom skyline bow tie can be found here. We have 8 wood types and 35 fabrics for you to select from with the price ranging from $75 to $90 depending on the wood species you decide on. Like the rest of our wooden bow ties, the adjustable elastic band sits snugly around the shirt collar for a comfortable fit.

Currently we offer over 60 cityscapes including:



Once your skyline bow tie is ordered, our maker’s process takes about 2-3 days as each skyline is handcrafted to order. As soon as the wood piece is hand selected, laser etched, and the fabric and strap are carefully secured, you receive an email notifying you that your USA made wooden bow tie is on it’s way to your front door!

But don’t forget to post a photo of your new tie on Instagram or Facebook when it arrives and tag us in it! We love hearing from you all. 

Black Silk

This classic pocket square made entirely out of black silk fabric, is bold and the perfect neutral to finish off any look in your wardrobe. This fabric pocket square is truly the best of both worlds as it makes a statement while remaining timeless! Not to mention, it matches perfectly with a handful of our wooden bow ties: Blaise, Frank, and Russell.

Lexi Arielle Photography Styled Wedding Shoot

Posted by Lacey Wilcox on 21st Apr 2014

Your wedding day is one of the most exciting times in your life. We know there are a thousand things you could worry about as you walk into the next chapter of your life, but nothing is as important as the memories surrounding that special occasion. You want your wedding to be a reflection of your style and your love.


This styled wedding shares a warmth and casual, Southern style in a sweet outdoor ceremony. The look is light, simple, and charming. The natural setting is a perfect backdrop for two people who are comfortable and confident in their love. The stylist chose our Jamestown wooden lapel to adorn the groom for this beautiful outdoor ceremony. The Jamestown lapel flower works as good as it looks. Here, our lapel flower plays southern casual, and we think you’d agree: it’s as dapper as it is timeless.


Crafted from high-quality Walnut, the Jamestown wooden lapel flower is a unique and innovative piece. Its light grey center coordinates with a variety of color palettes and styles. For this styled wedding shoot, the artists involved paired the Jamestown lapel flower with a navy sport coat, denim shirt, and floral bow tie. It’s classic, but dashing, and the perfect groom’s attire for an outdoor wedding.


All of our wooden bow ties and lapel flowers are crafted from the finest hardwoods and quality fabrics, meaning they’ll be around for many years. They make the perfect gift for any groom or groomsman who possesses distinguished style, and will be around and wearable long after a traditional boutonnière. Just like the love you celebrate, they’re timeless.


We couldn’t have been happier to have been included in the styled shoot for this couple’s bright and sunny occasion. We’re always up for playing our part in the display of beautiful, distinct style. But our versatile line of handmade, hardwood bow ties and lapel flowers make a great compliment to what’s really on display: the beginning of your new life together.

The Fashion Police Approved Wooden Bow Tie

Posted by Sarah Mendelsohn on 23rd Jan 2014

E! Entertainment Television’s Fashion Police is a popular TV show that seems to have gotten as much praise as it has debate. Every week the program’s opinionated, funny and fashion forward hosts: Joan Rivers, Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne, and George Kotsiopoulous, participate in a series of discussions related to our favorite celebrities’ red carpet choices. After watching the show you’ll quickly realize that absolutely no one wants to be on this group’s worst dress list. Joan Rivers and the gang are not too friendly when it comes to talking about fashion mishaps. So, when their conversations involve risky fashion choices and brave accessories, such as our wooden bow ties, we were thrilled to hear that Two Guys Bow Ties passed the Fashion Police test. Not only was Two Guys Bow Ties welcomed by the sassy fashion television show, but was also even worn by one of the show’s hosts. George Kotsiopoulos looked incredibly dapper in a pair of navy slacks, and striped button down shirt worn underneath a hunter green printed sweater. The look was brought together with the always charming, wenge wood Carl bow tie.

Excited about the look and his new wooden bow tie, Kotsiopoulos snapped a picture of his show time outfit and shared it with his Instagram followers. Their abundant likes and comments even further supported the Fashion Police host’s unique accessory of choice. Like Katsiopoulous, you too can shine in a Joan Rivers approved wooden bow tie and we can pretty much guarantee you won’t be laughed at by any Fashion Police while wearing it. Katsiopoulosus’s Carl tie as well as a range of other stylish and unique wooden accessories are readily available to purchase on the Two Guys Bow Ties website. 

James Wolpert Has the Voice and The Right Accessories

Posted by Sarah Mendelsohn on 25th Nov 2013

There’s no denying that NBC’s The Voice contestant, James Wolpert, has an incredibly commanding voice. Each episode he continues to surprise with his song choices and great energy on stage, but we’ve recently also come to notice that Wolpert has more than just a unique voice. The singer also seems to have an impeccable sense of style. From colorful knit sweaters to vibrant tailored blazers, we’re always excited to see what James Wolpert will be wearing with each new episode. So, you can only imagine our surprise when we noticed one of our own wooden accessories on Wolpert ‘s blazer on last night’s episode. The Voice contestant managed to even further up his style game with one of Two Guys amazing wooden flower lapels that easily added an extra edge to the singer’s usual prim and proper look.

We’re also happy to say that Wolpert’s team followed up with Two Guys Bow Ties Co. and let us know how much he loved wearing our wooden flower lapel. Finding a newfound fan of wooden accessories, we recently made some more custom lapels for Wolpert that you can expect to see on an upcoming concert he’ll be performing in with Cole Vosbury. We’re excited to see how he styles it next and will continue keeping up with both his music and stylish ensembles.

You can also order a wooden flower lapel straight from our online store. We are even able to customize them. Check out our immense offering of both wooden bow ties and wooden flower lapels on Two Guys Bow Ties online store. You know we’ll be on the lookout for how our customers style their wooden accessories too. 

5 Ways to Incorporate Your Unique Style in Your Wedding

Posted by Lacey Wilcox on 22nd May 2015

Your wedding is a day that will be more documented than Donald Rumsfeld’s tenure at the Pentagon, so you want to make sure you’re being you and that your wedding shows off your unique style. You don’t want to look back and see your face in a suit and setting that looks so foreign to your personal sense of style that someone might say, “Your head looks photoshopped into this Victorian ballroom regalia kinda like Jack Nicholson’s head looked in the final shot of The Shinning.”

Here’s how to plan for your big day to make sure you show your unique style in your wedding.

1.  Use Pinterest- Isn’t Pinterest just the greatest? It is a great tool for browsing what’s out there, especially when it comes to planning a wedding that shows off your unique style. Early on, it can help you figure out things like if you need an indoor or outdoor venue, if you want to class it up or down. Pinterest is great for the basics, and it’s an easy way to give your lady some input on colors, venues, styles, and themes that help bring out your personal style in your wedding.

2.  Quit using Pinterest- And sometimes, isn’t Pinterest just the worst? Once you have your initial considerations considered, get off Pinterest. Otherwise, you can get pretty bogged down in the details, and lose sight of creating ways to show your personal style in your wedding. Use it to get an abstract idea that really depicts you and your bride, but once it’s time to settle on the details you’re going to want to look within a bit to maintain your personal style in your wedding.

3.  You be you, and let her be her- Some of the best weddings are the ones that allow both the bride and groom to bring their unique styles and tastes in their wedding. Take some time to look at your fiancé’s apartment or house together and see what kinds of design features she’s using to make her home and make sure they make it into the aesthetics of your big day. Look at your own personal style and see if there are some ways to bring that out in your wedding attire and other details.

4.  Incorporate the feel of your venue- After you settle the basics (with your judicious use of Pinterest), make sure you’re designing your pieces around where you’ll be holding the festivities. We’re not saying that a standard cloth tie won’t work in that idillic weeping willow grove, but hey, we’ve got some accessories that would work even better for that environment and go a step farther in showing off your personal wedding style. The good thing about our wooden bow ties and lapel flowers are their versatility. Our hardwood accessories can be modern and rustic, dressy or casual. It’s all in how your piece together your big day to put your unique style on display.

5.  Do Your Groomsmen a solid- While it’s the tradition of Western culture that you and your dudes go spend a few hours getting fitted for tuxes and cummerbunds you’ll wear so rarely that places actually rent them, you could maintain your personal style better by dressing up the kinds of things you already wear. We’re talking about classing up your normal, dapper fabric styles and classic looks with things like vests and wooden bow ties. Want to wear dark jeans? Go for it, just make sure you adorn your blazer and neck with some classy yet cool hardwood accessories. Want an even more unique and personal touch? Consider trying out our custom wooden bow tie option. With hundreds of fabrics and engravings to choose from, your sure to find something that helps make your wedding even more personal. Trust us, your groomsmen will thank you, and brides love it.

Keep these five things in mind, and you are guaranteed to have a wedding that will show you and your bride’s unique, personal style in your wedding. If you have any questions about wearing our wooden bow ties or lapel flowers for your big day, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Wooden Bow Ties For Your Backyard BBQ : How To Really Win At Corn-Hole or Washers

Posted by Lacey Wilcox on 4th Sep 2015

Men, it’s time. It’s time to clean the grill, fire up the coals, and knock the cobwebs off those outdoor games. It’s time to get the crew back together for a little springtime backyard BBQ action. We know we don’t have to tell you that being boss of your backyard BBQ isn’t just about cooking some killer good meat. You’re also expected to jam good tunes, mix good drinks, and win any game played at your house including Cornhole or Washers. But you’ve also got to look good doing it all. Our wooden bow ties are just the psychological edge you’re going to need against your opponents.


If you’re wondering which of our handmade wooden bow ties will make the biggest impact and sway the situation in your favor for backyard BBQ glory, read on and we’ll explain. Our philosophy on the matter is simple: If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. Let’s face it, no one wants to be the guy who loses games of Cornhole or Washers when he’s playing with home field advantage. We’ll make sure that won’t happen to you.


In any game of Cornhole or Washers you’re going to want to throw with Elmer or Blaise around your neck. Elmer has an outdoor vibe that just screams “I’m a Cornhole legend!” Have you ever known an Elmer that didn’t wear camo or pitch washers?


If our Elmer wooden bow tie isn’t quite your style, our Blaise will bring another kind of expertise all together. Blaise is versatile. He looks as good with a white cotton oxford as he does with a chambray work shirt that’s faded in all the right places. You could say Blaise is quick to adjust to any set of adverse elements. Wind blowing your bean bag slightly to the left? Blaise blends right into that environment. He’s unflappable. He’s even ready for the after party if you want to put the blazer on to finish the night out at your favorite neighborhood hangout.

Before you throw your next backyard BBQ make sure you pay attention to that little detail that scores big points. Order our Elmer or Blaise wooden bow tie today. It won’t be just to your Cornhole or Washers advantage to strap one on. A burger will taste better when seasoned, flipped, and served by a wooden bow tied man. A mojito, old-fashioned, or even an ice cold Dr. Pepper will taste best when delivered by a dapper dude like you donning the Elmer or Blaise.
