S. Army, NY NY, USA

LNP, thank you so much for the personal bow tie for the wedding! I got so many compliments and it was exactly what I was looking for. Amazing craftsmanship! @lenoeudpapillon is truly the best!


S.E, Victoria

I must share with you my story from last year. I was supposed to get married in September, however this time last year, I fell really sick and my liver gave in. I was on the waiting list for 3 months for a liver transplant. Fortunately, I have beautiful people around me and angels on my side. Everyone’s prayers were heard and I was gifted a second chance at life. Whilst lying in the hospital bed patiently waiting, I somehow fell in love with your bow ties and knew that when the time came, I would buy one of your ties to wear on our wedding. I was so disappointed when I could not originally order a bow tie from you because I caught you at your last day before jet setting over seas. I was hopeful that you may somehow return just in time to make me a bow, if it was meant to be. Low and behold, how fortunate was I, that you returned one week before my wedding. Honestly, it is the finest bow tie ever!  I love love love it so much. I can feel your passion in your work and you can clearly see it shining in this photo as I stand beside my beautiful bride. Thank you so much and all the best for 2020.


Carolyn F. Anderson, USA

Good evening,

It looks like I missed the boat with this exquisite bow tie. I am emailing you to see if there is ANY chance at all that you have another one of these gorgeous bow ties in stock.

I LOVE this fabric and the color is fantastic! I live in the US and have purchased several bow ties from you in the past.

Anyway...I LOVE your bow ties and get many compliments when I wear them. I am a petite female and I like to "mix it up" with my wardrobe. Your bow ties always add the perfect touch. Thanks to your bow ties, many ladies are thinking about wearing them and purchasing them from your website. Keep up the absolutely beautiful work and offering the world's finest selection of bowties!
One Happy Customer!


R. Campbell, London, England

The most beautiful bow ties I have ever seen. Masterpieces from a true artist. 


K.Dillard, Maryland

Bow tie enthusiasts we are witnessing something special.  LNP undoubtedly is in a class of it's own. The quality is unsurpassed. The designs are pure artistry. They have revolutionized self-tie with their unique pre-tie technique. There’s always something on the platform that satisfies my taste and style. I thought I had a pretty good tie collection until I discovered LNP.


D. Hsu Sydney, Australia

I absolutely loved it. And the hankie. 


Beatriz M, Charlotte, USA

Hello LNP - Just wanted to share this photo of my son Cristian sporting your tie and pochette for his piano performance this past weekend. Even at age 14, he immediately noticed the super quality of your products and felt (and played) like a million bucks. 


J. Short, Victoria, Australia


My package arrived yesterday. Two absolutely fabulous pieces. The fabric is glorious and I love the bow clasp. And thank you for the fragrance too. 


G. Robertson, Thredbo, Australia

Currently in France on work trip and absolutely loved my eye shades on the flight. Definitely had the best dressed eyes on Ethihad... Will never leave home without your eye shades again. The softest silk = not jet lagged eyes. :)

Carissimo Le Noeud Papillon,

First of all, I am proud to tell you I am wearing bow ties from 1984, when, thanks to my job, working with a "normal tie it was quite difficult".

From that date, travelling quite a lot in Paris, there, I found my favourite bow ties, let see, in the 3rd arrondissement. At that time I said this bow ties is a good quality and I enjoy for many years.

One day, about 2010, I knew you and your articles, specially the top quality of your bow ties.

It is not my attitude give for free gold medal to a brand, normally are more than enough the commercial exchanges.

I have watched your brand growing up from Italy and it was surprising for me to see you progress given you were in Australia.

Honestly, I am proud to say I wear your bow ties regularly and they are better than the ones we find in France or even in my country even though you use our silks!

As I told you in past: Or you was born top of a volcano, or you are the Leonardo da Vinci of bow ties.

Keep follow your hart.


Bruce K., Florida, USA

LNP is a brilliant star in a world of crummy bowties. Nicholas is a bowtie genius, superb craftsman, and passionate entrepreneur — the Michelangelo of bows. Silk quality and designs are second to none. Get one — you’ll be hooked! As another reviewer remarked, the pocket squares are delightful too. Shipping is prompt and customer service is unbeatable.


Andy P., California, USA

Simply the best bow ties in the world. Truly distinctive, Nicholas makes bow ties that simply can't be obtained anywhere else. Beautifully made and substantial, these bow ties are not for the beginner. They can be challenging to tie, but the very best bow ties usually are.


Michael S., Australia

The first things you notice is the quality of the bowtie, the unique and ever changing designs, Australian made (yes, I was pleasantly surprised all those years back when I first stumbled across LNP) and guaranteed to impress. A LNP bowtie will make you stand out in a crowd and put a smile, not only on your face, the face of all others who notice.
Nicholas not only makes an excellent product his customer service matches his products. As other reviewers have mentioned, simply the best bowties in the world. Don’t believe me? Try one Nic, may you continue to cut silks for years to come.


Brad S., Sydney, Australia

Le Noeud Papillon has an exceptional eye for quality and a business dedicated to its customers. Nicks ability to go above and beyond for a perfect bow is second to none. I’ve known about LNP for about a year and heard about his business through a friend who is an avid buyer of bows. My main draw card was the eye shades. I suffer horrid migraines and his eye shades are honestly the biggest help when I’m suffering. I’ve since purchased some of his expectional ties and his lapel flowers. I’ve never been able to fault the products or the service. A definite must for anyone seeking to elevate their collection.


E. Long, Texas, USA

Saw Le Noeud Papillon a few years back on an internet link. Bought two bowties - not realizing they were based in Australia. Ties showed up promptly to my doorstep in the US. Killer ties!! Killer packaging. Since then, I've ordered a series of ties - all of which have exceeded my expectations as to design, style, quality and price. Ordering is a breeze, customer service is helpful and responsive. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED


David A., Rhode Island, USA

The finest craftsmanship, the most elegant fabrics, and most creatively designed prints from all over the world. Since discovering Le Noeud Papillon, I have morphed from an introverted, boorish, tasteless, and uncouth barbarian to an international fashion influencer with almost 650 followers! (Yeah, it’s hard to believe.) But most importantly, I am the reigning Le Noeud Papillon bow-tie portrait competition champion, the official 2018 LNP bon vivant! Today, thanks to Nicholas, I am the life of every party, able to soft shoe on your dining room table in a single martini!

In all seriousness, you rock!


Andy P. USA

I've bought bow ties from all over the world, but Le Noeud Papillon makes the best.


George T. USA

Hello Le Noeud Papillon,

How have you been?  I wanted to thank you for the cologne you sent me in one of the last purchases.  It's one of my favorites.  The new boxes also look and feel incredible.   I've been planning a trip to New York City sometime soon as I keep being told at work I need to take a vacation :) I hope your doing well...

Thank you for your message about this beautiful 'broken bird' bow tie-  really incredible how you found the geometry, cut and folded it to make it all come together. I know I am not the only one to see the brilliance in your creations, especially the yuzen pieces - so please forgive my enthusiasm, and please don't ever misjudge it for boorish gluttony.  Each of the109 yuzen I have are special to me.

Now some 375 bow ties later I realize you have given me a lot of yourself and I simply have not reciprocated.  This is my own insecurity (which I feel is worsening as I get older), so please forgive me.


Ahmad D. USA

As much as I love my many LNP bows, I think your accessories are actually my favorite products. The bow-tie cufflinks are gorgeous. And the rose gold boutonnière is perfect for special occasions. But my favorites are your pochettes, which although I’m sure wear wonderfully, I think are best served by framing as art.

Please keep up your work, I am always excited to see what your next must-have objet d’art will be!


M. Penny Sydney, Australia

I had the pleasure of purchasing 2 silk bow ties and matching pochettes from Le Noeud Papillon and I could not be happier. The quality is without peer. I wasn’t sure what to purchase on their website. The range was almost overwhelming so I emailed them and they carefully assisted me  throughout my order process. The ties arrived within 2 days in beautiful packaging. The whole experience was delightful from beginning to end.


Kevin D. USA

Congrats on ten years in the biz and happy 40th birthday. I’m glad that I connected with your products, my collection is growing and my life has been enriched immensely.


C. Savva Sydney, Australia

It was a pleasure to have Le Noeud Papillion as part of my wedding. Nicholas consulted with me and advised on the style of the bow tie to match the wedding styling, my suit and to suit my face shape – we chose a thirties batwing self-tie bow-tie. He made the tie from scratch and made the groomsmens ties as well. As well as making the ties with short notice, he came to the house and tied up my bow-tie and the groomsmens ties with a double four-in-hand and they all looked great! Thanks for a great experience all round.


D. Linnan Charlotte, North Carolina

Ah LNP, I have regarded your white covert shirts as emergency evening shirts ("break glass in case of formal dinner event..."). Most recent usage was at Art Museum formal gathering in Charlotte, NC last weekend. Sad to see them go, as a result. Please note that I am headed tomorrow for SE Asia (may actually make it to Oz with girlfriend around late June to early July). What do you think, is the Great Coastal Road and biking to the Twelve Apostles too raw in winter? Pls note the shirts are going to my Singapore tailor's address.


B. Moore Sydney, Australia

Many thanks and apologies for my computer illiteracy and being an all-round pest. That said, the Timothy is an absolute stunner - like all your ties and I shall wear it with delight. Thanks again


Rob Weatherbee Happy client USA

I ordered one of lenoeudpapillion’s silk eye shades after reading several reviews online. My pregnant wife has terrible insomnia and is constantly turning on the bedroom lights to read.    I was looking for something of high quality, beautiful, and comfortable.  I must say my expectations were far exceeded with the quality of the shade and the fit.  Shipping to the United States was easy and quick.  My shade came complete with a beautiful creed scent which made the experience even more relaxing. I will definitely be ordering another shade in the near future!


Z. Skyring Brisbane, Australia

Dear Le Noeud Papillon,

Your ready-to-go shirts are outstanding value. Beautiful fabric, intuitive sizing and a robust collar. The white shirt hits all the right formal
notes but goes equally well with Moleskins and denim. The blue shirt has a nice depth of colour and has held up after several washes. Delivery was swift and the packaging distinctive. I look forward to my next purchase with Le Neoud Papillon.


J. Price California, USA

Dear Le Noeud Papillon,
A very dear friend recently gifted me two of your spectacular bowties for my birthday. I remember him giving me a very enthusiastic description of your craftsmanship and unique materials weeks prior to my party.
He was quite insistent that I would be very impressed with them. Honestly, and I am more than a bit embarrassed to say this, I didn't think there was any chance your bowties would live up to his passionate description of them. I could not have been more wrong. Bow ties are kind of my signature staple and I wear them no less than 3 times a week. I only own the best examples from Valentino, Christian Lacroix, Hermes, Tom Ford, Gucci, Prada etc - I have even spent $1200.00 on a Stefano Ricci bow, but I have to tell you that the Orlando and Vincent ties that my friend gifted me are breathtaking.
The richness of the silk and robustness of the shape give them a truly bespoke look that outclasses most of my collection. Needless to say, I am officially a Le Noeud Papillon fan and you can expect future orders from me... Congratulations on crafting such amazing ties.


Z. Skyring Brisbane, Australia

You did a great job with the ready to wear shirts, LNP. The collar is a standout so far. Delivery was prompt too.


C. Chang, Singapore

After heading to every suit store and department store in town, I decided to bring my search for the perfect bow tie online. I went through multiple forums (even James Bond ones) until I cam across a review on Le Noeud Papillon bow ties. Obviously I bought 2 bow ties for my dad and I which were wore at my wedding!!! They were both AMAZING! Not risking tooting my own horn, I will say my dad looked very dapper


D. Allat Sydney, Australia

I love my traditional ties, however, the thought of wearing an item that is not only hand made but also created in such limited numbers, helps me exude great confidence. Even loved the small touch of some perfume in the envelope.


K. Dillard Maryland, USA

I got the Max yesterday! A work of art. Matches two of my squares perfectly.


B. Simpson, Sydney, Australia

I'd just like to say the quality of your products are insane!! I suffer pretty intense migraines and was convinced by Thomas Carle that your eye shades are the best thing in the world. He was 100% right !!! When I saw that you did lapel flowers, I had to have them! They have fast become the first choice for any outfit! Exceptional quality and amazing products.


M. Roberts, California, United States Of America

I received the bowtie you sent to me. I am absolutely speechless... The bowtie itself is no less spectacular than the other 10 or so I have purchased from you. But the part that absolutely has me gobsmacked is your surreal customer service. I am not even going to pretend that I am a big fish in your pond. There is no doubt that you have some real heavy hitters that are loyal to your shop. You have a product that is superior to any I've seen, by a light year... I want to tell you from a most sincere place that I appreciate very much you making me feel like I matter.


G. Borsella, Florida, USA

Dear LNP, I got the bows. I was so touched by the note you put in it. Thank you so much. The bow is beautiful. It's nice to know in a world of uncaring people, that you took the time to care. I am very glad to deal with you. Thank you so much. You're the best. 


Matthew Hamilton Diggers Rest, Victoria

Hi LNP, the cummerbund arrived today. Both are exactly what I was after, thank you for the express order and the level of service was excellent.


Thanks, D. Meisenburg, USA

Hello LNP,

I got my Yuzen bow tie and the T-Shirt last week. You made one of the most beautiful bow ties I have ever set my eyes on. (Opening the box and seeing the bow tie was like getting hit by the great wave of Kanagawa) It is a work of art! I am waiting to wear it this weekend to a birthday party. The patterns for each of these bow ties are so unique.

I'm going to send you a couple pics of me wearing the bow tie in the F. Scott Fitzgerald room in the next couple days.


G. Thomas Texas, United States Of America

Isn't it like seeing something beautiful in nature? Turning your head in one direction, only to be surprised by an ephemeral glimpse of beauty. You have a gift in choosing and cutting the perfect part of these hand painted silks, revealing this natural balance between selection and chance. Each one is precious. Thank you again for these works.


A. Bottomley Dallas, Texas

Thanks again for such a prompt response, I went to a black tie event Tuesday night here in Dallas and once again, I had so many people ask me about my bow tie, and where I got it. Even though it is a black tie, it is still a show stopper, and people notice.


M. Stahl Sydney, Australia

Scented and everything! My beautiful, beautiful bow-tie arrived today.
Impeccably well-played, sir.


Brad Homes | Fashion Editor | GQ Australia

Dear Le Noeud Papillon, 

We can't thank you enough for ongoing support, we adore working with you and your bow ties are THE BEST ⭐️⭐️⭐️.

Kind regards, 


D. Ettakadoumi Melbourne, Australia

With my wedding imminent in late 2016 I had almost everything organised, almost. The theme was classic black and white and while I took great care and effort on having a bespoke tuxedo constructed for the big day I made the assumption that finding a nice bow tie to go with my ensemble would consist of a simple outing to one of any fine menswear stores in Melbourne.

You know what they say about assumptions don't you?

After searching high and low I realised, with one week to go, that finding the right tie, one that wasn't just a preformed, nasty, generic piece of shiny afterthought, was going to be tougher than I imagined.

After much research I stumbled across Le Noued Papillon's website and immediately called. I spoke with Nicholas and related to him my plight and exactly what I was looking for. He told me he might have what I was after in front of him and sent me a photo of this impeccable one piece diamond tipped bow. I purchased it and it was promptly sent to my home. Upon trying on the bow, to my dismay I realised that it was too short by 1-2cm. It was a gamble that didn't pay off as a one piece has absolutely zero tolerance and this bow was already made for a particular neck size which just fell short of mine. I spoke again with Nicholas, this time a little distraught as my wedding was a couple of days away, and he pointed me in the direction of P.Johnson tailors who might be able to help as they stock a limited number of his ties here in Melbourne. Upon entering their store, the day before my wedding, they were able to provide me with a tie even more suited to my tuxedo and one of absolute singular beauty. Nicholas immediately pledged to return my payment for the first tie upon receiving it back and wished me a happy wedding.

Now you see gents I go on about this and I'm sure some of you think I sound more like the bride than the groom (I'm actually a bit of a "bloke" to be fair) However if you place importance on quality then details like this definitely matter. You will not find better quality than this anywhere.

More important is the quality of service. The service you have shown me is so rare these days it is to be applauded. I would recommend to anyone looking for the best quality in both product and service to definitely reach out to Nicholas and his team at Le Noeud Papillon. You will not regret it.

All the best,


O. Jovet, Denain, France

Each time I want to buy a new bow tie, I think of Le Noeud Papillon. The very first bow I bought from you, and now I have four. The last one I received I wore last Monday, and yet again more than ten people told me they loved it. It’s so magical to wear your bow ties, that it’s impossible for me to buy from another brand. As I go to Charvet for my ties, so I go to Le Noeud Papillon for my bow ties. Thank you for everything. 


R. Tjosvoll, Norway

Dear LNP,

I don't regularly use bow ties in my daily outfit, nor when I'm at the bar. My usual ensemble is suit with a tie or without a tie.

As I live in Norway, even this will be too "dressed up" for most people, but I really enjoy a well tailored suit, a hand sewn shirt and hand welted shoes.

I don't pick my clothes to please others, I do it to please myself, just as when I open a bottle of wine, I don't drink it for others, I drink it for myself (usually not by myself).

I only own one bow tie, and that is The Donald from Le Noeud Papillon, for my dinner suit. There is no other way I will use any other bow tie than from Le Noeud Papillon for my tuxedo, you are really the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in the world of bow ties.

I wish you a best of luck for the coming years, though I suspect my Donald will last longer than me. Quality, made with love for the craft.

Thank you,


H. Paul, Western Australia

Dear LNP,

Your bow ties are the ROLLS ROYCE of bow ties.

Bow ties are exceptional in every way, they stimulate human special senses. 
For myself when I wear them (daily), they give me the feeling that each bow tie is made exclusively for me.

Best wishes,


P. Carmody Melbourne, Australia

My fascination with bow ties began last Christmas Eve. Not long after I found a website claiming Le Noeud Papillon the best bow ties in the world. As a Melburnian I was typically suspicious of this claim. All suspicion was abandoned, however, when the first order arrived. Opening the stylish packaging a now familiar fragrance burst forth, setting the scene for the reveal. These ties are seriously classy, one might say decadent. I've ties from around the world, but these silks are set apart by the cut, quality and design, and they keep their shape all day. I wear them almost daily and receive compliments about them almost every day from men young and old, and women too. In formal, work and casual contexts I never run out of an excuse to wear one. They really set you apart. Once you've found the right length and mastered the rather straightforward knot, there's no turning back. 


N. Allen, Canberra, Australia

No single adjective can fully comprehend the Le Noeud Papillon bow. Elegant, exquisite, ostentatious, while true, all fail to correctly represent what is notably the greatest bow tie in the world.

Nicholas has consistently re-raised the standard to which bow ties are compared to today. Quality that comes second to none and unique silk designs (sometimes years in the making) are what puts Nicholas's work above the rest.

Until recently, I was always on the fence about wearing bows, but since my first purchase (December 2015), my collection has increased tenfold to which I find myself consistently turning to when looking to elevate even my most extravagant outfits.

Since investing in LNP whether it be in the bow, classic tie, pochette, lapel flower, or scarve, the benchmark for quality in my wardrobe has been raised respectively. I have confidence my collection will see through part of my life and prospectively be passed onto the next generation.

Thank you for continuing to surpass even my greatest expectations.


G. Hilton

I have a love of the finer things in life and I know quality when I see it, Le Noeud Papillon bow ties are of exceptional quality, they are handmade by craftsmen from the finest silks in the world, many are designed in house and represent values of old that are lacking in today's world, they are made with passion, skill and attention to detail that would embarass some of the larger luxury brands.

I love wearing my classic black bow tie with my tuxedo, it is timeless, stylish and majestic, and whilst it is a private pleasure it has not gone unnoticed by others.

I can highly recommend Le Noeud Papillon Bow ties, not only are they the finest in the world but the elegant and thoughtful packaging and friendly customer service adds to the finer details to provide a true luxurious experience.


H. Choi Sydney, Australia

The Majestic Black is truly the gold standard when it comes to bow ties. It is stunning in its depth and has a magical ability to pique one's interest even though the less interested would say it's just a black bow tie.

It goes perfectly with any black tie ensemble and is best self tied with just a little unevenness to show its character.

I love the rare occasions I get to wear it. It is truly the cherry on top of both my outfit and my night.


M. James Victoria, Australia

Whenever I wear bow ties, its exclusively Le Noeud Papillon. I have a at least five bows personally, and have given them as gifts at special occasions, and they have always been met with an initial look of bewilderment but always a postponed deep gratitude. From the unboxing to the feel of the silk when tying, your bows, like all proper luxury goods, are an experience. But, just like d'aphinois cheese, your bows are a treat - they can be savoured, but it is easy to over indulge. Whilst not all recent patterns have quite been to my taste, the creativity and commitment to quality in design makes them objectively beautiful items. Unfortunately, though, I cannot buy them for every day, but they have, and will continue, to mark many special days in my life.


J. Kalinowski Sydney, Australia

They are like having a work of art around your neck for the world to see.


S. Campbell, NT, Australia


The best bow ties in the world (in my experience at least). And for a great price. Skip a mass "luxe" fashion label that makes thousands of pieces a year, unless you're only interested in the brand name.

If you're more interested in the look, style, and fit of the piece, this the place.

Really enjoy the regular updates in instagram too. Great to see what new silks and things are coming through.

All the best, look forward to my next purchase!


C. McBride Blackheath, Australia

Wearing a Le Noeud Papillon (LNP) bow tie means you have an impeccable sense of style. It’s not just an accessory; it’s a statement piece that tells a story to the world about my individual character. Wearing an item of this calibre naturally captures attention, and even though they are red carpet quality, they deserve to be shown off all the time. My distinctive style means I’m wearing my bow ties daily, they are a part of my unique way of looking at the world, and how I represent myself to the world. A LNP bow tie isn’t just another bow tie it’s speaks to a way of life, LNP know this, they are artisans and the level craftsmanship, care and attention to detail is second to none


Ahmad D. Philadelphia, USA

Dear Le Noeud Papillon,

I am writing to express my delight and complete satisfaction with your bow ties, your blog, and your customer service. Most of all, I am delighted by three things: the sumptuous quality of your fabrics, which are unmatched even at the highest-end retailers; the eclectic mix of classic and fashion-forward designs; and the meticulous, obsessive detail with which each of my more than 15 LNP bows has been crafted. Your recent pocket squares, La Belle Dame and Marguerite, have been a special treat for my after-hours wardrobe, and a great conversation starter among close friends.

Thank you for letting us all benefit from your creativity and artistry.
Kind regards,


C. Cullinane Sydney, Australia

I have now purchased 14 Le Noeud Papillon bows over the last 6 years, and they have never failed to impress in terms of quality, uniqueness and providing a statement. LNP bows always illicit a chorus of positive compliments and enquiries as to where they were purchased. LNP continues to walk that fine line of providing beautiful bows, without over saturating the market - meaning the wearer continues to feel that their piece is theirs alone. Over time I have broadened my purchases to include pochettes, flowers and even a couple of the decadent eye masks. The quality and vibrancy of LNP's productions is always a level above.


M. Grant

Dear LNP,

I wanted to write and tell you how thrilled I am with my two bows - they are magnificent! Your service from start to finish was first class.

Please be assured of my return custom!


PS Thank you also for the ‘bow tie t-shirt' - I love it :)


J. Coates AC, Sydney, Australia

Dear Le Noeud Papillon,

I thank you most sincerely for the bow tie.

As you will see from the attached photograph, it was clearly superior to that worn by the _. and the straight ties worn by the _.

Your contribution to my sartorial elegance is greatly appreciated!

Best regards,



T. Messenger, Sydney, Australia

Hi Le Noeud Papillon,

I wanted to say a big thank you for your beautiful bow ties. It is great to see Aussie businesses with so much passion in their product.

The Majestic Black bows looked great at our wedding. I had never worn self-tying bow ties before so I have now taught myself to tie them up. I have now decided that I will never wear a pre-tied bow tie again!

Thank you again.


The Snob Report (@thesnobreport) USA

Often copied, never equalled. The Majestic Black by Le Noeud Papillon. #probablythebestbowtieintheworld


C. Pham Melboure, Victoria

The two bow ties have been received, and they are beautiful and perfect. Thank you.


P. Thistleton Brisbane, Australia

So, today my tie arrived (in Brisbane) a day after purchasing online (along with pocket square). Calling this thing a tie would not be doing it justice. This tie is exquisite. If tie's were cars, this would be the Maserati or Ferrari of ties. The quality of material, quality of gold buckle, the little stamp on the clasp, the knot, the feel, the certificate (yes, it came with a certificate), the classy shape compared to 'every other' silk tie out there is just on another level. This tie will be proudly worn on my wedding day. Thank you for helping me out with style also.


M. Stockwell Queensland, Australia

I would like to take this time to opine my experience regarding Le Noeud Papillion (LNP) products.

I have the privilege of owning LNP bow ties, braces, pocket squares (both cotton and silk), ties and lapel flowers.
To some a bow tie is a comical attire and, upon witnessing the lower grade representations, one has to agree. However, I have been granted with the highest level of compliment, imitation from those once loathed to participate in the discourse, with regards to my LNP bow ties. Never once have I received anything but admiration and astound concerning LNP bow ties. When one has the opportunity to wear something of the highest quality, and I use this term in its absolute sense here, not just as a matter of course, it is noticed, it is admired and when it really reaches the superlative, it is then copied.

I have enjoyed every one of my 27 bow ties. I have also had the pleasure of owning a magnificent set of purple silk braces and many other LNP products, all of which attract admiration for no lesser reason than they are the superlative.


S. Campbell Darwin, Australia

The postage is great, I am also impressed with your regular engagement with followers on instagram and your emails always have me checking the website, though I seldom have the funds to get as I'd like.

Also really enjoy the instagram, one of the better men's fashion ones in general.

Anyway, keep up the good work!


E. Greenwood Sydney, Australia

Hello LNP, 

I recently bought the Phillip bow tie - it was awesome. I received a lot of compliments and it was definitely a beautiful and original piece. The way it was tied was especially impressive.


A. Reynolds British Columbia, Canada

I love Le Noeud Papillon bow ties and I believe they are the best of quality. I have never been able to find any other bow tie out there that even comes close. I have a passion for having good quality ties and bow ties. I am always eager to show people the bow ties that I have bought from LNP. I have even gone into stores that I shop to show them the quality and have asked them to contact Le Noeud Papillon to see if they could do some orders.

My worry is what happens when you stop doing business?


D Meisenburg, USA

"Again, love your ties. [Here is] Your navy bow tie with my navy Tom Ford shawl collar dinner suit. Its great how well and easy they tie. Also, they really stand out and let the world know you tied your own."


Andrew P. Sydney, Australia

Le Noeud Papillon Of Sydney makes the most amazing bow-ties and silk lapel flowers in the world! I am up to my 8th bow-tie so far and I will be collecting more soon!
Recently, a very respected and distinguished gentleman made a point of privately complimenting me, that in my Le Noeud Papillon bow tie I looked just like an aristocrat. I was dressed wearing a John Cutler suit with a Le Noeud Papillon bow-tie. LNP silk and cashmere scarves are also of the finest quality.


W Cardwell South Coast, New South Wales, Australia

I recently received my ‘Number 5’ bow tie from Le Noeud Papillon Of Sydney which looks even better in the flesh than on your website. I'm always pleasantly surprised by how quickly your parcels arrive. The process of removing the ribbon and opening the monogrammed box to find a perfectly wrapped masterpiece, scented with the fragrance of mandarin is a heady experience. It recalls memories of anticipation and excitement when opening a present as a child. Every detail of the presentation has been
 carefully choreographed and wonderfully executed by the team at LNP.

Using the occasion of my latest purchase to organise my bows, I was surprised to discover I had purchased 13 from LNP, excluding pocket squares and boutonnières. All in a surprisingly short period of time. My wife remained silent except for a single quietly spoken word, "13?”. The question hung in the air.

Searching, I explained my purchases as forward planning or perhaps a sudden rush of blood whenever LNP announces a Dutch Auction or a Flash Sale.

Had I not been caught off guard, I could have said that choosing a single bow had proven to be impossible, as they seem to have an almost addictive quality. Or perhaps, I buy them for the same reason that people climb mountains, because they are there?

Later, over a glass of wine, I finally found an answer with which I was happy. The truth is, I take great pleasure in wearing the best bow ties I have ever seen and unlike many articles of clothing, the absolute best is affordable to almost anyone who feels so inclined.

Thank you Le Noeud Papillon for your excellent and personal service. I remain your loyal and happy customer.

About a year ago, you were kind enough to agree to produce a series of custom neckties for me. I now have five, and wear one each day (around chambers, to Court when not robed, to functions etc). As much as I’ve enjoyed the exclusivity of our project, this note (which I’m happy for you to upload) is intended to share with your LNP readers your talent with neck ties.

Attached are some pictures of the most recent tie you produced for me, I believe you said both sides were alternating natte basket weave silks you had loomed in Como. I love it, and have had numerous people ask about it. As you know, I prefer double-sided ties with contrasting patterns/colours, and strong, neat, and discreet stitching - so that each side stands on its own merits, and can be flipped for the occasion. You’ve achieved that perfectly.

Notwithstanding that you’ve produced the ties with fine Italian silks, they're incredibly durable. No signs at all of pulling around the knotted section (or elsewhere), or any fraying of the silk or stitching. I can see that each tie will be an active wardrobe piece for many years to come.

I’m not sure whether you intend to expand your business to cover neckties (as an additional staple to bows), but I suggest you do. They’re no more expensive (or cheaper) than designer brand ties (Italian name, but produced in 2nd world countries), but of substantially higher quality (at the standard for which you’re renowned with your bows).

It puts a spring in my step knowing that I have an LNP around my neck each day, and I’m sure other LNP followers would feel the same.

I’ll contact you this week to arrange a time for my next visit at the Vaucluse LNP Studio.

Many thanks,

To Lovers Of Bow Ties,

I just received the latest bow ties ordered from Le Noeud Papillon. I have now almost twenty bow ties from them. All are very special from the packaging, variety of colours, design, material and overall quality. I have also bow ties from other luxury bow tie makers but the variety of design and quality found at Le Noeud Papillon is exceptional. The velvet bow ties in particular are of the highest quality and similar quality and design simply cannot be found elsewhere. I recently wore the "Purple Prince" in a wedding and received many compliments.

I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend it to anyone who has a passion for bow ties. Keep up the good work at Le Noeud Papillon.

Hello Le Noeud Papillon,

A lovely end of the week surprise indeed, as two very tired Papillon's flew through the door after a fast but rather long flight from Sydney…

As soon as I felt the sturdiness of the "box" (which turned out to be two boxes ! ") I knew there was something extra special inside, and I was more than rewarded from my first impression!

Beautiful regal blue box, gift wrapped elegantly with blue & elegant gold writing on ribbon, when opened a gentle essence of stately masculine perfume …

Thank you for the additional tie, so very different in contrast to each other, and I shall wear them proudly only knowing partially the great endeavour in realizing their existence.

Enclosed below is a picture of them I shot on my daughter's grand piano after I received them.

I shall certainly mention when asked who created these splendid bow ties…



W. Cardwell, South Coast, NSW, Australia

 Dear Le Noeud Papillon Of Sydney,

Thank you so much for the beautiful bow ties, flower and pocket square I received yesterday. As always, I'm very pleased with the quality, presentation and style of everything you make. I purchased the Bruno previously and it should go perfectly with the orange and blue square and a navy suit when the weather cools enough to get back in a suit.

Kind Regards.

Dear Le Noeud Papillon:

I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I was with my new smoking jacket, bow tie and pocket square.  They are beyond my wildest expectations.  The quality of the quilted silk in the first to arrive jacket is amazing.  It is as light as a feather, feels like it weighs virtually nothing yet looks like a trillion dollars.  The tailoring was incredible and  it fits better than anything I have ever had made and is even more comfortable to wear.
I want to also thank you for your patience and attention in the ordering process.  I have never worked with a made-to-order company that delivers this type of top-quality and professional service.  

As you know, this led to my purchase of three additional smoking jackets, your cashmere, your Sidney and your black silk.  Each one is amazing in different ways. I am looking forward to buying more items from your diverse choices as your judgment in selecting and making the items you offer is unparalleled. 

In all seriousness, prior to meeting you by way of the Internet, I researched the world for the best products of the type that you provide.  In my opinion,you are the best, among any, including any so-called top shelf chains and brands.  Having come to know you a bit in our dealings, it is easy to understand why - you are a world-class person of the first order.  I have unabashedly recommended you to any of my friends who are even thinking about buying any of the wonderful apparel you sell.  I am very happy you are getting the acclaim and notoriety that your company deserves, and, to any that have not experienced the quality of your products, I would urge them to not hesitate – it is truly a wonderful experience. 


P. Zelter, Oxford, England

Dear Le Noeud Papillon Of Sydney,

Many thanks for your prompt response. I did - as you might have seen - buy the bow tie. I will wear it as part of the formal academic dress at my university and hence a slightly “bohemian" look is much welcomed.

This isn’t the first bow tie I have bought from Le Noeud Papillon and I just thought I should let you know how pleased I am with my other ones. They look terrific and add the perfect touch to one’s black tie attire. Nowhere else have I seen the breadth of choice and level of quality when it comes to bow ties!

Best wishes,

Dear LNP,

Thanks for hosting such an exciting event. The Dutch Auction Sale was a first for me. You definitely grabbed my attention at 40% off. After that I was hooked ! Thanks to you, I got a lot of Christmas shopping this week ! I am looking forward to receiving my new bows and lamenting the ones that got away. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us next !!!

Best Regards, 


Anthony R, Norfolk, United Kingdom

Hello Le Noeud Papillon
I trust this note finds you well (and perhaps a little rested following your recent busy schedule?)
Can I resist everything except temptation? Absolutely not! I have placed four orders with you over the past few weeks making full use of your recent (and really special) Dutch Auction. During this time I have received three of the most beautifully crafted bow ties in the most wondrous silks that one can imagine. I really cannot wait to receive the further three bow ties I have ordered; which will only be bettered (I believe) by the receipt of an utterly divine silk/cashmere scarf in red and navy along with a selection of your excellent handkerchiefs from order number four. I truly cannot wait.
As a lover of the finer things in life, I would like to thank you for everything thus far and I look forward to the your new season's offerings. I am in no doubt that I will be contacting you very soon with an order of five or more.
Kind regards


Tom Carle New South Wales, Australia

Thanks so much, LNP!

I just came home from work and found your delivery on my doorstep! I really can't get over how amazing your products and customer service are!

I've been a bowtie devotee for a while now. I'm 24 and there hasn't been a day in the last 3 years I've not worn a bow.

I discovered you by accident a little under 6 months ago. I'm now the proud owner of 9 of your bowties.

I've not bought a bow from anyone else since. And to be honest. I'm not sure if I ever will again.

I'm yet to find any other designer OR manufacturer with near the level of quality or pride in their product. Wearing one of your bows makes your whole day better. I work in customer service and am constantly complimented on how wonderful your ties are.

They make children happy, adults respect your sense of style and Doctor Who fans lose their minds!

In the end, it's all about looking good, and knowing it. And I'd just like to thank you at LNP for facilitating my style, awesomeness and eccentricity every day.

Your biggest fan,

Subject: Best Bow Ties on the Planet

Wanted to say thank you for posting pictures (on your blog) I sent you from my vacation in Monaco.  I was a great surprise and happy to "show off" your awesome velvet Dicky bow tie.  I own several of your ties and wear them often.  I'm attending THE largest black tie events in Chicago.  Opening night Gala and Opera Ball at the Lyric Opera House. At this event  I will wear your "Clubs" limited edition silk bow tie.  Will send pics……it should be an ocean of bow ties this event.  

Thanks so much for making the best bow ties on the planet!


H. Toll Sydney, Australia

Dear LNP,
It has been remiss of me not to be in contact sooner.  I have had two excellent evenings of late, made all the better by being accompanied by two of your signature bows and pocket squares.  I enjoyed a terrific evening celebrating Christmas in July this year, and most recently my father in law’s 70th birthday, and on both occasions stole the show with your fine silks.
I sent you a photo some years back of me in one of your original bows in action at a wedding – if you recall, a bright beauty sporting horizontal stripes of red, gold and blue and pointed ends.  It did the trick at the 70th this past weekend, the mature crowd enjoyed every bit of it.
Many thanks, it is always fun to have something positive and distinct to talk about at a special event.
All the best,


J Krupa Ontario, Canada

Up until now, I’ve only owned some fashion brand bows which were all I knew.  Wow, was I surprised at what a real quality bow is like to see, touch, and wear.  My LNP bows are much beefier, better made, and just way more beautiful to look at than anything I have in my current wardrobe.

I wore the Kirk this past weekend and received several complements.

More LNP ties will definitely be in my future.



E Kornel, New York, USA

Hey LNP - I just wanted to let you know that I got the braces yesterday and they are freakin beautiful! Thanks for the great service.  If I decide to replace my bow tie before the big day, I will definitely look your way. 


A. Oldham Sydney, Australia

Let me commend you on your skills. The two bow ties I got from Le Noeud Papillon are awesome: expertly made and of lush, soft, fat silk – I would recommend you without any hesitation.


S. Casimir Sydney, Australia

The ties are always amazing and of the highest quality. I have worn them at a number of special occasions (including my wedding) and have always been complimented on how great they look.

I always appreciate the prompt delivery, premium packaging and certainly feel I'm getting what I pay for.


Ben Pearson, Coquitlam, Canada

Dear Le Noeud Papillon,

I've been a bow tie aficionado for several years now, and for me there have been plenty of labels that have captured my attention. Very few, however, have managed to hold it, and yours, LNP, is clearly one. For me, I feel like the need to sing the praises of your wares is unnecessary; surely their style and quality are apparent to all who view them. That is certainly the case when I wear them, because even though I'm hardly the photogenic sort (and I've sent you proof of this!) I receive compliments on my neck wear all the time. I wish I could take credit for this, but if I'm being honest, I must attribute the lion's share of the source of such fanfare to my bow ties -- or, more specifically, my Le Noeud Papillon bow ties. As long as they remain so unique, well made and stylish, I will remain a loyal devotee.
