Dot listen o any of this negative talk. Bow tied are a bit out there but the kind of guys ht wear them either get their asses handed to them...or change the wy style looks. It's great to be daring and I hope you make the right decision for you.
To be up front, I have never worn one and was never a trend setter at school. But admired guys brave enough to challenge a little later on in life. Now I can be darng and get some god reviews and some bad ones from friends and colleagues. So go nuts and never listen to those who would trash you rather than advise or construct.
Think a wool bow tie might be a good look on you.
