Could you do it? Of course. Is a solid more versatile? Yes.

If you have solids and like the pattern/color, go for it.

This is assuming you tie it the normal way and don't put any kind of twist into it. Like this... (Click to show)

Now I am confused because you guys gave me two different and opposite answers!

We might just be thinking of it differently.

The only way you can get the same pattern on the outside of the loops is if you twist the tie.

If you think of it in terms of the single end (not the loop), if you tie it normally, both single ends will have the same pattern facing forward.

Thanks for posting the video. It helped me answer another question I had which is how they got this look, where the center stripe is the opposite of the main bow. (Gray on floral)

What's confusing is when I tried it at home last night, I had a very visible and obvious twist. If you watch the video, he has an ugly twist visible too. But in the picture above, it's clean, no twist.

I don't have a tie in front of me but using my Side A and Side by example again, if one were to tie a bowtie the most traditional way (no tricks), starting with Side A, what would be visible (forward facing) for:

1. Front loop
2. Front single end
3. Rear loop
4. Rear facing end
5. Front middle part

?

Thanks for posting the video. I've been wondering about this for awhile but never got round to looking it up.

1. Front loop - Side A
2. Front blade - Side A
3. Rear loop - Side B
4. Rear blade - Side A
5. Center loop - Side A

This is the best image I found that shows it:

Hi,

 

I have 2 suits that have lapel widths of 3" and 3.25". I just dug up an old tuxedo jacket that has a lapel width of 3.5".  I was wondering, in all of your opinion, if 3.5" is too wide for lapels? I would post pictures but my camera isn't working. 

 

Thanks in advance,

CuffLinks28

As far as I'm concerned, 3.5" is the minimum width. No guts = no glory.

Quick question. Was this a good price for this pair of Vass? I didn't bid on it because I wasn't really sure..
