I stumbled on this question in a Men’s Accessories section of a revered publication.
Question: Why don’t we see more bow ties? I’ve always thought a guy in a bow tie looks like a gentleman, not to mention that he has a much smaller chance of dropping food on his tie. Or is the bow tie really reserved for schmucks?
Where has this person been hibernating? Bow ties have resurged with a forceful vengeance. I am seeing them everywhere: Editorials, city streets, parties, and even at casual restaurants. Astute Lawyers aren’t the only representation for the accessory piece anymore. You’re seeing a multitude of style players rocking bow ties. We’re noticing hipsters pairing it with suspenders; savvy-gents tucking it underneath sweaters; and even ladies sporting with cropped cotton blouses.
You readers know I’m a sucker for market! I went hunting, virtually, for my best bows.
