    Since I've recently started wearing bow-ties, I have a question to you. It happens that my head is quite large (think, +2 beta). Should I tie my bow-tie wider than usual to try and compensate for it or stick to the rules? Here's a link to illustrate what I mean:

    Neapolitan tailors will tug the fronts (of the jacket.) Try that and see if it works. If not, visit your alterations tailor.

    I thought that's just Mina? Or might the others do it too?

    It's impressive that the poster and his poster both are sporting bowties. An unconventional decorating choice, but I must applaud the commitment to the cause.

    Bowties can look very cool or very un cool, I think it all depends on how you wear them.

    Vox, if you tipped better and more often like your neighbours do, maybe I'd throw the Sunday paper on your porch! [​IMG] I think you'll have more fun reviewing this one, taken when I was at an art gallery opening (my eyes may give away how late in the party this photo was taken): [​IMG]
