Bolos

Handmade sterling silver bolo ties have been a Tom Taylor specialty since 1984. Like all our products, our bolo ties are handmade by artisans in the United States. The bolo tie has an interesting history. Men around the world have adopted the look and want to call it their own, whether they're Navajo Indians of the American southwest, Argentinean cowboys or rock and roll classics like Bruce Springsteen. Some say Manny Goodman, the one-time owner of a New Mexican Indian craft store called The Covered Wagon (which still stands in Albuquerque's Old Town Plaza today). Goodman recalled Albuquerque in the 1930s, when Navajo, Hopi and Zuni men began clasping together bandannas around their necks. They used a shell or a silver conch to hold the ends together and to adjust the fit. Other men used a string rather than a bandanna, and the bolo tie look was born.
