Memories of barnacles were all that came to me. The Bolo features pigmented concrete framed by the hollow brass form. The Bolo is secured with rivets onto a spring clip, which allows you to push the back to release the tension on the cord and adjust the length. The full length of the cord is 38". When worn the tie hangs down about 12"-13" below collar bone (depending on how big of a neck you have). A notable part of the Barnacle Bolo Tie is the handcrafted bolo tips designed to admire the small details in life.
