Carrot & Gibbs

30 Years of Success

Humble Beginnings

Carrot & Gibbs began in 1987 by founder Neil Borin. Neil was always on the hunt for interesting, bright and whimsical bow ties, when he couldn't find them, he decided to make them. From those beginning moments in 1987, Neil never imagined the success and demand that followed. The menswear industry has always been, and will continue to be in high demand of high quality and unique products. Carrot & Gibbs answered that call by introducing the button closure bow tie to the market. Neil saw a need for the traditional metal closure to be challenged. He wanted to create something that represented the luxury that Carrot & Gibbs stands for. Mother of Pearl buttons were the result. The form and function of this detail remains our signature.
