Founded by Charles Threatt III, a dapper young gentleman with an knack for personal style, CT3 is a company based out of San Diego. We aim to provide handmade bow ties that are unique to the purchaser and that foster a relationship with the producer.

Charles J. Threatt III ... is a native to southern California, growing up in and around San Clemente and Mission Viejo. He moved to San Diego shortly after finishing high school. Charles began college in San Diego before moving to Spain. After traveling throughout Europe Charles was inspired by the diverse sense of fashion he found surrounding him. Upon returning from Spain, Charles finished his studies at Point Loma Nazarene University, graduating with a BA in Christian Ministries. However, after having several jobs within the Church, Charles decided that he was being called to help outside the walls of the church. He is currently working at The Classical Academy High School as a Social Emotional Counselor. He has always payed close attention to his style, and implemented his own "Fancy Friday" routine in high school; claiming that since everyone else dressed down on Fridays, he would look that much better in comparison. Convincing Charles to skip a "Fancy Friday" is out of the question, and in his fourth year of college he decided that to make his look that much more unique he would bring the bow tie back - and that's exactly what he's done. When he's not working at the high school or playing basketball, Charles is hard a work designing custom fabric, creating new styles and twists for his bow tie line, and sewing bow tie after bow tie.
