On the Trail of Quality Since 1976

Custom Bolo Tie by Charlie John.


There is only 1 item left in stock.


Charlie John bolos are sizzling hot since Mr. Redcloud ("The Revenant") wore one on the Academy Awards this year.  Charlie John bolos and buckles were already very sought-after by those who require a high quality man's piece.   Note the buckle in the picture is no longer available.  The problem with bolo ties is that there is a lot of tourist junk out there that have thin, simulated leather (vinyl!) lanyards and mechanical, store-bought clasps on the back, and the bolo itself may either be cast or machine-stamped.  This bolo is meticulously hand-stamped and the keeper on the back of the bolo is classic old-style crimped silver loops.  The tips are custom-made—not store bought, and the hand-woven, thick lanyard is real leather (tip: always twist the lanyard back and forth and sniff it.  Leather smells like leather; vinyl smells like a rip-off!).   The Drifter sees a lot of bolos but only wears an original Tommy Singer and a Charley John (but not at the same time!).  This piece is nice—real nice.  The matching stones are water web Kingman mine turquoise.  So tempting...
