Mises Crest Bow Tie (Burgundy)

Average Rating:
This tie has no adjuster but will fit most neck sizes.

This all-silk woven tie, embroidered with the Mises shield, is of dazzling beauty and stately elegance.
Price: $14.00


We've offered the Mises bowtie for a few years now, but on the new release, we've made a substantial change. We gone back to an older form of bowtie the 1950s or so. The ends come to a point in a triangle shape. When you tie it, an interesting complexity appears. On one side, the point edge is in front. On the other side, it is in back. The overall effect is quite beautiful and elegant, nearly polyphonic and 3-D in its appearance. It is unusual but it should be: in fact, it looks very stylish!

Now, the Mises bowtie is unique in every way. It just signals that the wearer knows what's what - and has the confidence to show it.

This all-silk woven tie, embroidered with the Mises shield, is of dazzling beauty and stately elegance.

When we set out to design the Mises Institute tie, we sought to do more than create a conventional institutional product. We wanted something that is beautiful, something that aspired to be a tie that stands up the highest standards of quality and artistic brilliance. It should be the tie with a pattern and color that would be the first you would pick among all your ties.

We believe that we succeeded. Note the deep burgundy, which is perfectly matched with the same color in the Habsburg shield of the von Mises family, a color that serves as the perfect complement to greys and blues in coats and suits. The Decalogue is detailed, the Rose of Sharon clear, the caduceus of Mercury visible even in its small size.

Thus too the super-sturdy silk fabric, which is the same you find in the shops of the best and most established makers of fine neckwear for men. It is easy to tie, but the knot retains it shape, so that it looks strong and certain.

And so even if this were not the Mises Institute tie, even if it didn't feature the family crest of the greatest economist and freedom fighter of the modern epoch, it would merit a high place in any wardrobe. But as the person wearing the tie, you know it means far more. It stands for principle, for right, for truth and stamina in the face of evil, and integrity above all else.

The tie comes in the traditional four-in-hand style, as well as a bow tie model. The traditional tie explains itself. As for the bow, the conventional line on those who wear them is that they are secret bomb throwers, or so says John T. Mallow (author of Dress for Success), and perhaps there is a grain of truth in that. But it also suggests independence of mind and clarity of thought. Of course Murray Rothbard would have adored this tie.

Yes, at $25, the quality comparies to ties at fine shops that sell for $65 and higher, and the look is truly unsurpassed. You will be very impressed indeed, and so will anyone who observes you wearing this monument to excellent taste and dedication to freedom.

Sharp and Meaningful
My favorite tie on the rack is now this bowtie.

It looks very sharp. More importantly is what the tie stands for, and where it comes from! The Mises Institute! Can't think of a better way of supporting such a fine organization.

Forget the haters, you need this tie.
Ever since I received my Mises Crest Bowtie in the mail (promptly I may add), I haven't stopped getting sexually suggestive calls from my lady friends. I've been buying drinks and selling sperm ever since I fastened this fine piece of adornment. Talk about supply and demand; this market on MY neck ain't free, ladies.

Forget David Letterman; this tie can be as tight as the fine birth canals of my young lovers and I sure won't be complaining.

My wife hates this tie
Because every time I wear it I have to beat the women off with a stick.  I'm quite fond of the thing.

For the Ladies
I really can't see how one would NOT want to wear this bow-tie. If you can't get laid with cool stud-wear, then you're doing it wrong. Try taking a bath, and remember us when you're exchanging your money for the water you used when the bill comes.

I went into a bar with this sleek mofo on my fine BAMF of a self; the ladies swarmed-- I don't blame them, I am constructed like a GOD. If you build it, they will come, you know. And oh boy, were they coming. From the plethora of ladies selling their goods, I discriminated until I picked one foxy lady (I didn't mind the opportunity cost of one less lady b, c, etc.).

You Miseians KNOW I lathered my girl in free market juices (statists, you'll understand when you enter our intellectual elite) and rocked her world harder than Atlas Shrugged rocked high school kids. I didn't take the tie off for a second. She wouldn't let me! We did everything from the Albert Jay Nockin Boots to the Lysander Spoon-her.

All because of the tie, man. Its the tie.

Very bad tie
Note: This comment left online due to it's hilarity --- 

I can see why many would choose this tie, when your life's hobby is analyzing things using faulty unscientific presumptions as your foundation you need to affect some sort of outsider, old-school intelligence to make up for your logic deficits.

However, young libertarian idiots need to find a new way to reinvent themselves as rebellious anti-revolutionaries upholding the truth about class structure as told by Austrian nobility, this tie makes them look like creepy Don Knots throwback f-ggot virgins.

Seriously, you guys need to take up some kind of coat as your signature clothing, some sort of "I'd totally be getting laid if this were my alt-19th century steampunk wunderland where piles upon piles of human corpses produced by the Truly Free Market was both morally fair and economically progressive."

Also, I can bench 2.5x my body weight and if I ever, EVER see one of you idiots (I probably won't since you live in little American whitopias) I will f---ing deck you as hard as I can.
