let’s go to a very crucial question: Tie or bow tie? for every self-respecting man there has been in his life an episode of difficult choice between these two accessories . But this choice is only subjective choise or can we be helped by some rules? let’s discover it together!
Let’s start talking about both:
Tie It consists of a strip of fabric that is knotted around the collar of the shirt, letting go down the longest end on the chest.
the generic length is 150 cm but there are also longer ones, generally the longer one is chosen by the taller men or for some types of knots when using more fabric to make the knot you get the tie shorter.. did you know that there are about 85 different types of knots?
I really love the fantasy tie or pua like these ones:
but for the great occasion i love this one of Hermes, this is my favourite one:
bow tie The bow tie is a male garment that is an alternative to the most common tie.
The bow tie can be made of different materials, in silk, cotton, wool or other, and with different geometric or patterns, just like the tie.
There are two types: the traditional type to tie, and the pre-assembled. The lovers obviously prefer the first one.
The bow tie is in Italy associated mainly with men's evening wear. It is considered an indispensable component
in tuxedo or tails.
The bow tie is today more rare in everyday semiformal use as an alternative to the long tie. Personally I suggest this item only for the evening occasions, for daily occasions I suggest it for weddings or graduation day.
For the graduation day, just for the morning or afternoon for your friends thesis moment I suggest wooden bow tie like these three:
For all the other day events I suggest the classical tie.
Stumble with style!
