    Michelle on 19 November 2019

    A really impressive range of ties, bow ties and mens accessories, really colourful and you can tell its great quality. Didn't realise everything is hand made in France, which is a nice touch for people looking to shop sustainably. Thanks to Dan for the amazing service at your Shoreditch boutique, we got everything we need for our wedding here :)

  • "Love this little shop!"
    Margaux on 30 August 2019

    I was in London with my boyfriend for a wedding and we stopped in to look for a tie to go with his suit. We had the best time looking through all the different prints and settled on a pretty maroon and white pattern. I couldn’t resist getting a headband of the same pattern and Casey couldn’t resist the suspenders.... super helpful and attentive service; they even talked us noobs through what type of shirt he would need to get for his new accessories. Beautiful, quality pieces that I know we’ll have for years to come. Thanks for the lovely shopping experience, Le Colonel Moutarde!

What tie or bow tie will suit me?

Le Colonel makes 3 bow shapes: Classic, Diamond or Slim. For tall or well-built body types, we recommend the classic shape. For slim or short body types, we recommend either slim or diamond. For “normal" body types, indulge yourself by choosing from all three! We make two shapes of tie: classic and slim. We recommend a slim tie for a trendy, modern look and this also suits people with smaller frames. Classic, well, it's always classic!

I don’t know how to tie a bowtie!

All our bow ties are delivered pre-tied and come with press studs, allowing you to pop it on and off without even undoing it! However, they are all real bow ties, so if you know what you’re doing, feel free to tie and untie at will!

What size are the bowties?

All our bow ties have press studs which allow you to adjust the size between around 14.5" - 17.5". If you are over 17.5", we recommend ordering a custom-made bow tie and make sure to give us your neck measurement.

Which shirt will go with my tie?

Regarding the colour, we advise you to opt for a white or off-white shirt, which is always chic and easy to match. For bow ties, we advise paying attention to the collar – it must be small the line of the points should follow the edge of the bow tie. A tab or club collar shirt is a great option for the more daring! It’s a common misconception that bow ties are only worn with a cut-away collar, in particular with a tuxedo or dinner jacket. However today the bow tie can also be worn well with a casual shirt, so don’t be afraid to give it a go!

Do you have any other products?

Yes! Even though we initially became famous for our bow ties, we now offer a wide range of ties, braces, socks and children’s bow ties. We specialize in matching pocket squares and cufflinks for most references too. For women, we offer beautiful handmade headbands and bracelets, or pop in-store to check out our limited-edition knickers and panties! Our women's products make wonderful gifts for bridesmaids.
