Compiled Facts From Our Instagram Feed.

If you are on instagram, so are we! Follow us, our username is lvjhaberdasher. We like to put different information and facts on our feed in the descriptions. Here is a random compilation of facts we have posted to our IG account. Hope you like them :

  • All our ties are cut by hand on the bias. This gives them the fluid look you will see in any quality accessory.
  • Each of our ties will require up to 100 hand stitches.
  • A regular length tie usually measures 57 inches. Ties made for taller gentlemen will measure about 60 inches.
  • Our bows are handmade in New York City.
  • Our bow ties adjust to fit 13-18 inch necks. 
  • Dupioni silk is a very textured fabric. It is created when two silk worms spin their cocoons too close to each other. This creates the little bumps and knots you see in dupioni.
  • Donegal tweed originates from Donegal County in Ireland. It is all wool weaves, often with flecks pattern woven in. 
  • brushed cotton is brushed to remove extra lint and fibers, to make it smoother and a little flatter.
  • We're on twitter too. Follow @lvjhaberdasher
  • We're on pinterest. Go to
  • When designing our pocket squares, we really tried to find materials and patterns we had never seen. We wanted to create a-typical pocket squares. Our silk/polyester pocket squares are thicker and a little more structured than a normal silk pocket square.
  • We love the unusual.
  • LVJ haberdasher is family owned and operated.
  • All our ties are made by hand in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
