Don't be afraid to go ahead and tie one on. A bow tie, that is, or a necktie, available in hundreds of colors and patterns at Beau Ties, Ltd. of Vermont. A lifelong fan of wearing bow ties, Bill Kenerson was frustrated by the lack of selection available on the market, so he bought his own fabric, connected with a seamstress, and founded Beau Ties, Ltd. of Vermont beginning with just eight ties back in 1993. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the company has grown from a small home business to a full-blown factory with a product line including not only ties, but cummerbunds, pocket squares, ascots, cravats, and a variety of dress and casual wear for men. The company also creates women's scarves and boys' ties. Under new ownership, the company continues the tradition begun by Bill of creating quality, handmade ties and providing exceptional customer service.
