George Garvin Brown founded what would become Brown-Forman back in 1870, and this tie is named in his honor.
The wood used to create this bow tie comes from Louisville’s Whiskey Row; it is over 150 years old. The George Garvin offers an angular bow tie shape with a classically simple pattern of diagonal lines on the front piece. The rear part of the tie pays homage to Garvin's legacy with our unique bourbon barrel pattern. This wearable piece of art comes ready-to-go with an adjustable, clip-on neck strap, and it is beautifully packaged in a wooden show box with an authentic leather cover. The George Garvin bow tie also comes with our signature “StoryPak,” which explains the history of Whiskey Row.
StoryWood Bowties is about life stories – the story of the reclaimed wood we use to create our products, but also our company’s efforts to help people reclaim their own life stories.
For each tie sold, StoryWood donates $1 to Trees Louisville, a non-profit which plants trees. In addition, 5 percent of sales go to WaterStep, a non-profit with a mission of providing clean water to the developing world.
