Not the best and I have estimated neck size by measuring my own children's necks!!
Rummaged in my drawers for my very old clip-on bow ties (bought for Dom circa 1988...they were not really his style so I think that I sported them for a while...). They are beautifully fashioned silk bow ties. Here the bow tie looks enormous but in real life it is in proportion.

I have visited that very edge of the 'Unsurveyed area' on this map...

I like top stitching. I read recently that you can buy a little gadget that ensures top stitching is the right distance from the edge - if only I had know that...
I purchase all my maps from Edward Stanford - ho ho.
"Will it be the usual order madam?"
"Yes indeed Mr Stanford - please charge it to my account"
"Certainly madam. Anything else madam?"
"Not today Mr Stanford thank you"
"Good day madam"
"Good day Mr Stanford"
I will add an old leather button I think
