Bolo Ties

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
The topic of bolo's came up when I was out last nite, with some guys saying they were ok, some girls saying absolutely not. I figured this would be a good thing to ask here. What's everyone think of them? Does anyone wear them? I never have, doubt I will, but I figured I'd ask.

In Iraq, there are certain vehicles which were to be stopped and searched. Certain models we believed to be favored by terrorists and other assorted riff raff. There was a new list printed every day, of cars for which we were to "Be On the Look Out"--the BOLO list. Coincidence? I think not. Tom ps. no I don't equate cowboys and terrorists and all other necessary disclaimers.

I disagree with the general feeling on the board that women's fashion advice should be, for the most part, completely ignored. While I think that if their suggestions on *what to wear* re by and large garbage (because they know nothing about men's fashion), a woman's opinion in the negaive should nearly always be heeded. This is a case in point.

Some people look good in bolo ties.  My Grandfather wore bolo ties and looked great wearing them.  However, my Grandfather was a genuine, working cowboy, who lived on a ranch, rode horses, and went to the cattle auction and bid on steers and heiffers with other cowboys who wore bolo ties.   If you aren't a real cowboy, I don't know if you really should wear a bolo tie.  You will probably look like a poseur moron. (Like the guys who wear their jeans tucked into their cowboy boots.) For those who are thinking "Hey, I rode the pony that one time at summer camp, and didn't even fall off. Maybe I'm a real cowboy and could wear a bolo tie." If you haven't roped, branded, and cut the nuts off a bull calf, you probably aren't a real cowboy, summer camp notwithstanding.

I grew up in a farming community, and the auctioneers wore bolos. If you're an auctioneer (or live in Texas and make your money from ranching), go for it.

like a similar discussion a while back - if you are a real cowboy, you can wear a bolo tie. I don't think that I know anybody who would fall into this discription. I think that the same goes for a lot of different articles of clothing.

I actually was talking about bolo ties yesterday with a friend from Texas. He could pull it off by dint of being an actual Texan, but otherwise, I'd caution against it. Caution may be too nice a word.
