A bow tie always makes a serious sartorial statement… but when you’re ready to take it to the next level, an emerging Canadian company may have the solution.

BÖ by Mansouri is a Vancouver-based company that is re-inventing the menswear accessory using an unconventional material: wood. Handcrafted BÖ ties (get it?) are made with reclaimed lightweight wood like North American maple or North American walnut and ethically sourced material like paper twine and leather. They come in a variety of silhouettes, each boasting its own unique colour, shape or texture.

Conventional meet quirky, right?

Founded in 2013 by father and son duo, the BÖ ties are inspired by our natural environment. They are also pretty much guaranteed to be the talking point amongst style aficionados when worn for your next big night out.

BÖ by MANSOURI bow ties range from $55 to $70 CDN and are available for purchase through: getyourbo.com.
