How to Adjust a Fiáin Wooden Bowtie

by Caitriona Leather February 01, 2018

The gunmetal/black hardware sets we use on our tweed neckties are of a very high standard. The slider, cinch & buckle are custom designed - you will not find better quality hardware anywhereUnlike the cheaply made hardware you find on so many bowties, the sets we use are very solid & non-bending. Because of their highly polished finish, adjusting the tweed dickie bow to suit your neck size is a breeze.

First things first. Our adult sized wooden bow ties are adjustable between 15" - 21.5". We feel this covers the vast majority of customers. 

So, let's get down to it, how do you adjust the tweed necktie? Well it's very simple, & as mentioned earlier in the post it involves the use of the built in slider, cinch & buckle. But, if like most men you don't regularly put on & take off a bra... then 'slider' 'cinch' & 'buckle' may as well be a foreign language!

Let's help you with that gents, follow the step by step instructions below:

First things first - unless your a contortionist this is a heck of a lot easier to adjust you put on your bow tie!

Suffice to say, we completely stay away from low grade ‘genuine leather’ and instead use the very best ‘full grain’ Italian leather.
