  1. They’re classic and chic, and can look smart. If guys are going to where them, they should stick to the rules. A guy wearing a bow tie should keep it minimalistic, at least pair it with a sport coat. This is to avoid looking like you just got back from the circus tryouts.
    Girls (especially if you’re Audrey Hepburn) seem to be able to do more with them.

  2. Continue to love your blog. I lived in a town where the mayor was known for his bow ties. Someone wrote a play about him and I made his tie, blue with white dots, of which I have a lot left over!!! Will try to provide a photo on my new blog, buttonholetwist on Also started Blazer on yesterday. These are all thanks to you as I hadn’t shared my sewing abilities and you mentioned you wanted to see my projects. OK, here they come!!!

  3. My Mom used to make me wear a clip on bow tie to go to church when I was very young. I hated it and I haven’t worn one since..Maybe a repressed memory there…anyway, Gwen Stafani’s bow tie makes the biggest statement for me

  4. hey

  6. Thanks for liking my post! Just discoverd your blog and saw this post…
    And, ohh the first bow tie, and the one with the pearls and that with the lovely camee – I simply love them! Actually, not long ago I’ve started creating leather bow ties myself, decorated with studs and chains etc. If you are interested, they are soon up on my blog! I would love to hear what a bow tie lover thinks about my designs 🙂 Love your blog btw!
