When and how to wear a bow tie or tie
A tie is a piece of cloth worn by men for decorative purposes around the neck, resting under the shirt collar and knotted at the throat. Variants include the ascot, bow, bolo, zipper tie, cravat, and knit. A man wearing a tie (and being able to tie it) is a true sign that he can take care of himself.
Your tuxedo is incomplete without a tie. A respite from all the neckties, these types of ties can be your partner-in-suit at formal events. Bowties are especially recommended when you are the focus of an event. A seersucker suit and bowtie are also a great combination for your next calendar event. Bowties rank high for the different types of ties for weddings. You can accentuate the look of a simple 3-piece suit with a bowtie.
How To Wear – Bow Ties and Suspenders:
Bow ties and suspenders go together like peanut butter and jelly… if you wear them right.
Suspenders are one of my favorite things to wear with a bow tie. Whether they’re hidden under your jacket or in full display, suspenders can make for a great look with
your favorite bow.
A bow tie is a must-have for any white tie or black tie event. It also makes a statement with a suit, blazer, or just a dress shirt. There are commonly followed rules of etiquette that come with wearing a bow tie, especially in formal situations, that one should be aware of. To make sure you know how to choose a bow tie, and when and how to wear it, follow these simple rules.
Most bow ties sold are adjustable, but for style purposes, the fixed-size bow tie is preferable. The main advantage of a fixed-size bow tie is that the width of the finished bow will be directly proportional to your neck size. In addition, fitted models will avoid excess fabric and clasps, which may be visible when worn with a wing collar shirt.
Adjustable bow ties – The neck strap on the tie will have an adjustable slider or hook and holes with pre-marked measurements. Adjust the tie to match the collar size of your shirt. The tie should be snug but not too tight.
Fixed size – To be certain you have the correct size, have your neck measured by a tailor or buy a tie that matches the size of your shirt collar. The tie should be snug but not too tight.When tied, the bow should fall between the outer edge of your eyes and the width of your face.
