Hello, elders of style and keepers of the flame of eternal sartorial intentIt is to you whom I defer to make a difficult choice. I have a choice of two bow ties to wear to return to college in the morn. Everything else is decided from the usual suspects. More under the cut! [[SPOILER]] All advice graciously recieved. Thanks gents!
I actually prefer it to, say, a button down or a semi-spread. It kinda pushes the bow forward in a way the others don't so it spreads forwards more, making it seem a bit narrower and less affected in my opinion, but your mileage may vary. It's my preferred way of wearing them outside of a formal environment.
Evening fellas, (or morning, afternoon, or whatever time of day strikes you as appropriate)Deciding to shake things up a bit with a trusty burgundy bow tie. The rest of the ensemble is made up of the usual culprits [[SPOILER]]
Is that a tab collar my good man? Don't see very many other posters making such a choice, though the spreads and button-downs are the more commonly-seen, I feel like the tab has a nice rarity and uniqueness that you pull off with aplomb. I applaud you
Pants are the same as jacket, and black oxfords and tie were my Grandfather's
