    A must have skill for any gentleman. I wear bowties as a sort of a rebellious-affect. I think the majority of men who wear bowties wear them because the majority of men don't.

    - more importantly, a MUST have skill for your significant other.. There is something very alluring when my ex's would tie my tie or BT for me.. Sure I would then re-adjust.. But it's nice..

    But can she do it while simultaneously making out with you? Women should be able to multitask dammit!

    well not really, the way in the video is not how I do it, I make two loops instead of one and then throwing the other end over.

    A gentleman should know how to make a great martini, grill a perfect steak, know the difference between a Monet and a Manet.. and know how to tie his own bow tie.

    Danny: And I always confuse Monet and Manet. Now which one married his mistress?
    Tess: Monet.
    Danny: Right, and then Manet had syphilis.
    Tess: They also painted occasionally.
