Those are the most hideous abominations ever posted to this forum. A massive spam marketing fail...
Yes, clown ties!
What do you think of this bow ties bepoke in vintage grenadine? This is very vintage grenadine. He has more than 40 years of life on his shoulders.
Thank you very much for your compliments. Really.
And here's another bespoke printed silk bow ties still hand many years ago.
How does it look?
^^^^Beautiful! The yellow is a very subtle background for the contrasting blue and brown. Bravo.
And here's another one of our bespoke bow ties in vintage cashmere.
I want one.
Thank you for your response.
Send me a private message here on Styleforum and then do it all together for a true bespoke bow tie
I'm trying to get the hang of tying a bow tie, although I don't normally wear one I'm getting married this year and I want to be comfortable in the tying of one.
I'm fine until the last bit unsurprisingly but when you bring it up round the back and through the loop I lose a lot of tension in the knot
Does anyone have any advice how to combat this? Or tighten once finished?
Yes and no.
A bow tie, with a 2-button suit, can leave a significant expanse of shirt front showing. Maybe too much shirt. Depends to a great extent on the suit, and the build of the man wearing it. And on one's personal taste, of course.
So some men prefer to wear a bow tie only with a 3-button suit (or at least a 2-button suit which has a somewhat high button stance). Or only with a 3-piece suit. Or only when wearing a sweater (or sweater vest) with the 2-button suit.
Other men find the 2-button suit w/bow tie look to be entirely unobjectionable, don't think regard it as any sartorial sin to show some shirt front, and don't worry about the whole thing.
It's actually almost identical to tying your shoe laces. So, what do you do to combat your shoe laces from losing tension when you get to the part of the tying experience where you bring it around and through the loop? How do you tighten your shoe laces once finished?
Or do you just accept that your shoe laces need only be tight enough, and not necessarily any tighter than that? In which case, why not adopt a similar attitude with regard to your bow tie?
Well, just a thought.
