Jay Austin

Jay Austin, Owner, Jay Austin Collection Bowties

My name is Jay Austin and I am the Bowtie King of Atlanta. From time to time people ask, “What makes you the Bowtie King of Atlanta?” It’s simple: Our core mission is easy to understand.

Great selection, high quality, and second-to-none customer service are what build stellar reputations and loyal fans. So you see, no matter your style there is a Jay Austin Bowtie for you.

Our selections of hand-picked fabrics are where your custom bowtie begins. There are some companies that focus on getting their mass-produced bowties quickly to market. They don’t pay as much attention to what goes inside the bowtie, and for the masses that occasionally wear a bowtie, maybe that’s understandable.


What is your personal style worth to you?

But when your bowtie is your personal mark – your statement to the world – well, there’s no way our company will use low-quality materials for our bowties.

We spare no expense on our interfacing. A Jay Austin Bowtie does not feel like a spaghetti noodle to the touch. The strength and suppleness of good fabric is what makes a great knot. Both those new to the bowtie and seasoned aficionados are above all unique and fun. Blending into the background is not high on their to-do list.

A Jay Austin Bowtie lets your personality shine through no matter the occasion. Weddings, proms, business attire, hipster casual, holiday events, Spring/ Summer Parties, we have something for you.

I once read that travel broadens the mind. In my youth I was privileged to travel the world and experience cultures in Asia, Southern California, and South. Being able to develop my eye for styles and translating that experience into high quality custom bowties is what sets the Jay Austin Bowtie apart.


Custom Branded Bowties

The average person will say “Think outside the box.” But for the bowtie wearer “There is no box and your Jay Austin Bowtie represents your knowledge of that.” We pride ourselves in having a bowtie for every style and taste. Custom branded bowties, tie-to-bowtie conversions, unique fabrics, and more – we’re here for you.
