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.
Cool, I'll give it a try; I usually wear them with a spread or semi spread if the shirt isn't an ocbd.
I love wearing them but hate it when they look like a gimmick.
