I am getting married and my fiancee told me that I would look trashy wearing a tie instead of a bow tie.

What is the general rule or consensus on this topic?

I have tried searching the forum but found nothing.


No picture of the tux but I will be wearing a white shirt with with a collar. The tux jacket will be single breasted with two buttons, black in color.

You're wearing a tuxedo? You wear a bow tie.

Ignore the red carpet types that wear skinny black neckties with their tuxedo. Fifty years from now, when you're looking at your wedding pictures, you don't want to look like a douche.

That guy is fantastic, Layer Cake is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Now all I have to do is make it look it I had this idea all along because I will never hear the end of it.

She sounds almost as good as my coworkers gf.

She said she'd stop having sex with him if he monogrammed his shirts.

Sounds like a classy lady.


If you are wearing a tux, wear a TIED bow tie. If you can tie your shoes you can tie a bow tie.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
