It's got all the best qualities of a tie...and it was given by a daughter.
I've heard from people that with the prevalence of pre-tied options, some of their friends and family assume that they don't tie their own bow ties. Understandably, this causes bow tie wearers to bristle. So, how do they emphasize that they tie their own?
There's a lot of questions in this post and no answers. Anyone have any answers?
Thanks for reading and for your support. I hope that you have a grand 2016!

I didn't wear ties at all except when forced to for some formal event. My go-to tie at the time was a 'long' tie with Garfield the cat in a double breasted pinstripe suit. Classy. It was my way to rebel against having this noose around my neck.
So, you want your fella to wear a bow tie.
Knowing that such men are part of the fellowship, make all of us more interesting.

Soon, I'll be taking my bride to dinner at Orchids. It's a great restaurant with a good barman in a great art deco space at the Netherland Plaza hotel in Cincinnati. This is the tie I'll be wearing.
If you need a larger bow tie than what's sold, reach out to the makers. They will work with you.
