Black Silk Barathea Single Ended Bowtie
Item # M0192
NEW FEATURED ITEM!
This butterfly bow tie was worn by legendary entertainer Frank Sinatra in numerous live performances and public appearances. The vintage black silk barathea single-end bow tie has a "Washington Tremlett Ltd.” label and is excellent condition.
The tie was acquired directly from Mr. Sinatra’s personal costumer and longtime friend, Michael Castellano. Mr. Castellano began working with the entertainer in 1976 after replacing Sinatra’s previous personal aid, Eddie Fitzsimmons. Mr. Castellano quickly became Sinatra’s “right hand man” and performed numerous duties for Mr. Sinatra while maintaining his stage and personal wardrobe collection.
Mr. Castellano received this bow tie as a personal gift from Sinatra prior to leaving his service in 1981, and retained the item in his possession since that time. The tie is in very good vintage condition with minor evidence of wear by Mr. Sinatra. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Mr. Castellano.
The photo still and a certificate of authenticity from The Baltimore Sun is included in the sale of the bowtie.
