I'm a software engineer turned fashion designer. I founded Knot Theory in 2010 with the goal that everything we create will make you the most memorable person in the crowd, and get cool strangers to shout out how much they love your style (It happens a lot!) Knot Theory is about drawing out the most confident, charismatic, and intriguing aspects of you.
This time I took on the challenge to innovate the classic bow ties. Bow ties have a charismatic presence. They turn your run-of-the-mill outfits into dashing ensembles. They are not just reserved for formal events, in fact they stand out even more when you wear them day to day. Once you get a feel for how awesome they are, you'll want several bow ties! However, most bow ties are either cheap (cheaply made, pre-tied) or expensive (at over $120 per bow tie).
Meet the Infinity Bow Ties. Stylish, high quality, self-tying bow ties that are designed to last and to give you an incredible number of bow tie combinations without buying many bow ties.
The Infinity bow ties retail for $69. For this project, you'll receive a steep discount, plus free (or partial coverage) of the shipping cost. Thank you for your support of our innovation, and, by rocking these bow ties, we thank you for making the world more creative and dapper!
Choose from these bow ties!
As we reach higher funding we'll surprise you with more bow tie options! So far we've added these two bow ties:
Black & White butterfly!

Black & Red butterfly!
Please share this project and make it growing, living, and full of surprises, just like a fun person would be! (Yes, living helps! ;)) We want to make this project every bit as exciting and memorable to you as it is to us!
Design your own Infinity Bow Ties! They make much coveted gifts, especially when you personalize them. Choose from any of our fabrics, and choose between diamond point and butterfly wing tips!
STRETCH GOAL when you help us reach $9000!
Thank you so much for your support of this project! We've reached our stretch goal and we want to say thank-you by creating something useful for each backer. We decided it'll be a functional improvement to design a box for you to store and/or gift the bow ties, with the 6-way bow tie tying instructions inside! Boxes are costly due to high sample cost and minimums (500 to 1000 pieces), so thank you for helping us fund the box cost.
We've created the most elegant boxes for Knot Theory neckties. The bow tie boxes will likely look very similar:
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR BOW TIES
Enjoy all the different combinations you can create with the Infinity Bow Ties! These bow ties are versatile and attention-grabbing. The Bow Tie Styling Guide you'll receive will guide you to make the most of your bow ties!
Why do we need your support?
The funds raised through this project will be used to produce the Infinity Bow Tie Collection. The Collection uses 18 different fabrics. The fabrics need to be stabilized for durability and therefore requires a minimum yardage. The funds raised will help us meet the fabric minimums. Funds raised beyond our goal will help us bring you more innovation in neckwear / fashion!

Risks and challenges
Once the funding is in place our challenge would be to produced the bow ties. We have have been designing neckties and bow ties for 3 years, and have built a network of experience, skilled, and reliable tailors and seamstresses. We also have a couple suppliers to help minimize the risk of not getting the supplies we need. I'm confident we can deliver the bow ties at the expected quality and on time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
