Nice. For some reason reminds me of Virgil Sollozzo from the first godfather movie
(Can't find a better picture with his hat on)

Yeah I get that casually worn bow-ties are a love it or hate it thing, with no room in between. It's not something I do often, but I enjoy mixing things up.
I actually went to a lame-ass prep school where I had to wear a necktie of some sort every day, and the whole ivy/prep/trad thing has kinda just stuck to an extent. Add to that the fact that I probably see more drape-y motherfuckers during the day than I do preptards and I don't mind pulling the high-school nostalgia look out every now and then.
What's strange is I HATED that whole prep-look stuff in HS, but now that I'm out I quite like it. *shrugs*
And no, hand-tied.
