About the Bow Tie Aficionado

Sir Winston Churchill

The Bow Tie Aficionado site is for bow tie fans.

According to Warren St. John who at the time wrote for the New York Times, “A list of bow tie devotees reads like a Who’s Who of rugged individualists.” Some prominent, influential, and powerful men are members of this select fellowship. They include:

  • British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill (who is pictured here)
  • Doctor Who (as portrayed by Matt Smith and Patrick Troughton)
  • Bill Nye the Science Guy
  • US Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens
  • Questlove (Ahmir Khalib Thompson), DJ and drummer for The Legendary Roots Crew and The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon
  • and other notable dudes

While sporting bow ties intimidates many men, just putting one on is half the battle. All it takes is a willingness to stand out, which in many cases is a good thing.

This site aims to promote the virtues of this neckwear by increasing existing fans’ appreciation while encouraging others to join the fold.
