The Cecil Bow Tie is named after a gentleman that we, unfortunately, never met. Cecil, or 'Cec' was a spirited drummer who lived on Lakeview Road in Coventry, in the midlands of England. He was also an amateur boxer in those parts, a hobby that he passed on to the youngest of his two sons.
We felt as though, if Cec was to wear a bow tie, this is one that he may have been able to enjoy. Maybe not to work at the Rolls Royce aeronautics factory, but certainly when at the skins. (Incidentally, the very act of writing these few words has reminded us to learn more about the man... you have to know where you've been to know where you're going and all that...)
