And now Flusser is doing pre-tied bow ties - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Re: Flusser . . . Disgraciada! (how I imagine "discgraceful" is said in Italian ).

Re: Charvet . . . are you sure those aren't regular bow-ties tied for display purposes? That's how my local Neimans has them displayed.

in the words of Brando from Apocolypse Now "the horror . . . . "

As someone who wears bowties often (it is easy to tie them if you practice for about an hour at first), I am insulted.

I find both the matching and that particular pattern more objectionable than the fact that the tie is already tied. But, come on, let's cut Flusser some slack here. It seems obvious he must have some sort of licensing agreement. It's not as if he's putting this out as some sort of sartorial peak we'll all be expected to climb.

Yes, I am sure. Perhaps others can confirm this. Why are you so incredulous? Does it cheapen the mythical Charvet name for you?

I inquired about this same issue at Charvet(Paris) and was told that they do not make a pre-tied tie and that the ties were tied for display purposes only. The saleslady then took a tie from the rack and untied it.

Perhaps they only make them for the US market.

I couldn't find any examples now on eBay but did find another reference to them at NM in an earlier SF post: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...00&postcount=6

Bowties are the best. They remind me of Roy Cohn at Studio 54, sulking or Kinsey, discussing sex. They're so disingenuous, and perverse in their overt conservatism.

I made a call to Charvet and got the lowdown on their bow ties. It seems that Charvet makes something of a hybrid in that their ties are self-tie but with a clasp( in the back where the length is adjusted)which facilitates its use without having to tie/untie the bow.

Eh... that's pretty much the same as leaving a necktie tied and just sliding it on every day.
