A couple of weeks ago, I heard from the Northern Aristocrats, an Etsy shop. As I have noted before, there are lots of great bow ties on Etsy. So, I was intrigued.

The suggestion to me was to check out the Rojo Floral Garden, which is pictured here. With an offer of a discount in exchange for a review, I decided to check this bow tie out since it seemed rather dapper online.

Here are the main specs:

  • It’s a Diamond Point tie, which isn’t the most common type — that makes it more noticeable.
  • It is rather thick, which makes it easier to form in a good knot.
  • It has a reversible pattern — one side has a floral pattern while the other is solid red.
  • It is easy to mix the two different patterns.

I decided to wear it on an evening out the day it arrived in the mail. Since I had to stay late at work, I was in a rush and was pleasantly surprised that the Rojo Floral Garden was easy to adjust to a proper length for my neck. Sometimes it takes me several times to suss out a new tie, but partly due to the thickness of the fabric, it was easy to tame. That’s a big plus.

Another plus is the pattern. While I dig boldness, such a sartorial attitude can sometime overpower a situation and come across as obnoxious. However, that’s not the case with the floral pattern. Granted, it isn’t suitable for every situation nor can everyone pull it off, but it makes a wonderful statement.

Northern Aristocrats suggests that one such occasions is Valentine’s Day. That is a great suggestion for two of many reasons. First, its red theme definitely fits the holiday’s color palette. Second, what gal doesn’t like flowers on the day of love?

In review, the Rojo Floral Garden is a great tie, and when one wears it, other people are sure to appreciate it.
