About Beau Ties Ltd. Of Vermont
Like many independent-minded bow tie wearing men, Bill Kenerson had a tough time finding attractive, high-quality ties to wear to work. So he took it upon himself to change the situation. He went shopping for fabric. He connected with a local seamstress, and they created some bow ties. But it didn’t stop there. What had been a passion for wearing bows became a passion for sharing them, and in 1993 Beau Ties Ltd. Of Vermont was born, and launched with a collection of just eight ties mailed to 5,000 people. Response was immediate and positive. Their little Vermont company began to grow, taking over every available room in Bill’s house. He and his wife, Deb, kept their day jobs until, with a deep breath, they launched themselves into the tie business on a full-time basis. At about the time most folks reach retirement age, they decided to break ground for a new building for Beau Ties where sewing, shipping, sales and marketing operations could all work together.
