Balendin Valentine Bow Tie – Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and just like with Thanksgiving when Beau Ties Ltd. of Vermont sent me its Hominy bow tie, it sent me the Balendin to help me get ready.

Valentine’s Day is a great bow tie holiday. When it comes to romance ladies like men who dress up, and one can always use their neckwear to work red into their wardrobe. Let’s not forget that Alfred Kinsey and William H. Masters, two renowned “love” researchers, are prominent bow tie devotees.

With all of this in mind, I decided to sport Balendin in anticipation for the day of romance to see how people would react. Of course, people smiled, which made me feel great. Here’s what I heard:

A male friend – “Nice Butterfly*!”

A random lady in the hall – “LOVE the bow tie!”

A friend on social media – “Your bow tie says excited [for Valentine’s Day].”

Another social media friend – “Cool to hear a man excited for Valentine’s Day!!!”

* The Butterfly is one of the three main types of bow ties with Batwing and Diamond Point as the other two.

When I asked a friend if this would bring this single dude luck for Valentine’s Day this year, she said, “Definitely.” So, that makes me excited. Who knows what’s in store for me between now and February 14.

I’m going to state the obvious, but there are a few reasons why people like the Balendin. First, the color palette just works for the holiday; the multiple shades of grey red along with the white pulls from the two major colors associated with the holiday. Second, even the most unromantic person should admit that the hearts fit the theme, and they are tastefully done in a way that doesn’t scream ostentatious. Third, many note that bow ties make women smile. Fourth, as reported in a bow tie infographic, we learn that that the Valentine’s Day season is one of the busiest when it comes to sales. So, there’s no surprise that people love the Balendin.

Oh yeah… There’s one other review worth mentioning, but you have to take it with a grain of salt. 😉
