    Hah, it's ok. You can admit that you know the full name. That guy is not my favorite but still I would say does have more authority than 99% (if not all) of the people singled out here.

    OK, this is totally cheating and admittedly very unfair to the OP so I feel a teensy bit bad even posting it, but this is what Google translate came up with when presented with a fashion blog written in another language. So blame it on Google, and not the poster:

    I dunno the full name, I'm sure I knew a few days ago since it was posted here.

    edit: I suck and it's the style blogger, so obvious. FAIL

    Haha. That's why I figured you had to know it. You were already so close

    "This is actually a few days old, from before the Schneider cardigan got here. Wearing my sluttiest t-shirt."

    What the fuck is wrong with you?

    What's wrong with bowties? My grandfather wore bowties. [​IMG]

    Right. So the problem is the people wearing them, and not bowties themselves. How does one wear a bowtie without looking like an idiot?

    You really don't need to talk like this.

    Try not to wear them for the gimmick or "fun" factor. If you work in a place where you have to wear suit and tie, there's a slight chance that you can get away with wearing a bowtie.

    It's a very difficult thing to wear naturally.

    Rambo, the homophobic touch to your posts is disgusting.

    What about if you wear suits and ties just because you can? Also, I always pictured a bow tie going a bit better with an odd jacket than with a suit due to the decreased formality. Is there any basis for that?

    I don't know. I'm hesitant to give advice here because there are about 2 people in the world who can pull off wearing suit and tie just because they can. And they are generally people who can pull off wearing anything just because they can.
    I mean, I'm not assuming that that isn't you, but if you have to ask...well...
    The only time I've ever worn bowties was for black tie events.

    If it's something you really want to do, go for it. Just make sure you're not taking yourself too seriously.

    I'm obviously using hyperbole, but people tend to be suspicious of someone who dresses more formally than the social setting dictates. It can come across as fussy, or just plain impolite. But it really depends on how the person carries themselves. If the person seems genuine then it's a non-issue for most people.

    I tend to get compliments for about the first one or two times someone sees me "dressed up," and then nobody notices at all. I've certainly never gotten any negative comments about it, and it doesn't feel like anyone's bothered by it. I'm a college student, in case you're wondering.
