Oh agreed. Bowties are so lovely because they 1) remind us of another time 2) draw attention to the face 3) wrap a person up like a gift and 4) are as varied as any piece of clothing. I love the look of humility in that first picture. Really beautiful.
Love them all…my uncle used to wear a bow tie, only bow ties actually and he looked smashing…some can pull it off and some cannot. Love her bow tie too but what wouid I be saying if I word one one day…nothing I suppose : ) You do make everything beautiful, I am sure you know that.
Oh come on…how is a bow tie any sillier than a length of material that hangs down like a tie? So many things in fashion are ridiculous if you only view it objectively…think of ripped jeans that cost in the hundreds of dollars. But that is why fashion appeals too. It reflects the contradictions and whimsy of people.
The whole point of wearing a bow tie is that not everybody loves them. Real fashion is showing ones individuality and so the bow tie is the truest form of fashion. Why we love The Sartorialist is that he shows us this individuality so well!
Thanks for showing off the bow tie Scott.
I’m in suits and bow ties daily. Have been since the beginning of high school. Thing is, I’m particularly particular about making sure my suits are sharp, my shirts are heavily starched and perfectly pressed(and usually white), and my bow ties are perfectly tied with a good, tight knot and perfectly symmetrical. To wear one and look “rumpled” like you slept in your clothes defeats the entire purpose.
