Bow Tie Review: Bold Options from Seaplane Shirts
If you wear bow ties, you likely aren’t a wallflower. You enjoy standing out in a crowd. As Howard and I have advised before, when first wearing bow ties, one should keep it mellow. Wearing a different type of neckwear makes enough of a statement. However, if one is known as a bow tie guy, they can get away with bold prints and colors from time to time.

When Seaplane Shirts first contacted me about its bow ties, my first impression was that bold is the rule there. I mean that in a good way. As the company’s name implies, it specializes in shirts with bold colors and patterns. The bow ties are made from scraps from the company’s other wares. In fact, in some cases, a tie is an one-of-a-kind offering.
Now, it is important to note that the neckwear is not an afterthought. They’re simply not just another tie; they’re a limited edition item to add to one’s wardrobe. One can rest assured that they will not come across another tie like theirs. To me that’s a major selling point.
In fact, Eric Francis captured the potential. After learning about Seaplane Shirts, he tweeted:

Eric is like me. Sometimes I get stuck in a color rut, and these ties are certainly a great way to break out of the routine and freshen up an outfit.
The company sent me some samples last week, and I’ve been wearing them to see if they work as great as they look. I wore the one pictured here over the weekend, and I was impressed. First, it seems to have high quality construction; as I said before, although it was made from scraps, it’s no afterthought. Second, the fabric had some heft unlike ties from other brands that are rather flimsy. This heft not only helped me tie it, the thickness allowed the tie to hold its shape. That’s important. Third, it was easy to pair it with a blue dress shirt and navy blazer. This combo allowed the tie to command attention while not clashing with the rest of the outfit. In this case, I wanted the tie to stand out and shine, which it did well. One of my friends even pointed the tie to another person emphasizing that bow ties are my trademark. So, there are many reasons why I’m excited to wear these ties.
To conclude, if you’re looking for some bold options for your wardrobe, Seaplane Shirts has your back. Now is the time to act. Use the promo code above to get a discount on your next bow tie order.
