Looking to get your hands on a BÖ in a hurry? Gastown's premier shoe and accessory store is now carrying BÖ by Mansouri, and we couldn't be more excited about it. Next time you're in the neighbourhood stop in, say hello to Troy, and peruse his fine merchandise. 
They stock some other great up-and-coming and hard to find brands as well; Gentle Souls, Aunts and Uncles, Bellroy, the list goes on...

 

 

Rowan Sky is located in the historic Gastown neighbourhood of Vancouver, 334 West Cordova Street.

Bow ties were originally created at custom sizes for individuals, but adjustable one-size-fits-all sizes were a later invention directed at lowering production costs.

During the modern age, a bow tie can never be the wrong choice, as it can help dress up or down any outfit one chooses. Also, many people are starting to realize that it is no longer gender associated..
