    Matt, those are great! That was a fun night!

    Fred Astaire could do it well.

    I think Bing was the guy to go to when it came to bow ties.
    He wore 'em like a trademark.

    I was hoping someone would mention Bing Crosby. He is the reason I wear bow ties. (pics to come) I own...10 bow ties. which I call my beau ties.

    I wear them all the time (I smoke a pipe on occassion so I try to stay as close to him as possible)

    I will post pics soon. Lots of them, pics of hats, shoes, suits (me in them) etc

    P.S. I HAVE to find that bow tie that Bogey wears in the second pic. That is... well it makes me speechless

    I have a dark green with white polka dots bow tie from the 40's. Looks much like one I have seen Bing wear with a suit in a sheet music photo. I call it my Bing tie.

    Bing is one of my favorite crooners! Way smoother then most I have heard. I really like his early recordings from 1928 to 1938. I like Frank Sinatra, but only from 1938 to 1945.

    Regards,

    Root.

    Bow tie resources

    I've got about 20 bows. A friend from college wore them and inspired me, but a guy from Yale taught me how to tie one at a summer in Oxford. Mentioned already have been Brooks Brothers and Ben Silver.

    My favorite bows come from Hanauer. I also have ties from Beau Ties of Vermont, and, already linked, The Bow Tie Club. I want to try some from J Press.

    Well boys, I see you prefer the new bowties. As for me, I find vintage better looking and classier in shooting for a vintage look. The bow ties of the 30's and 40's had different looks. Most of them had a dimond shape at the end. I have a hanger full of 1930's and 40's original bowties. I have never been a clip on man and I could care less for them.

    Take a look at these fine specimens!

    Root.

    Early Frank Sinatra from 1943 and 45.



    Fred Astaire 1940.





    And now from 1926,Valentino!



    Now, Bob Crosby, (Bing's Brother) and Doris Day.

    Click here, click "Bow type/style" on the left-hand menu, and you'll see that you can still get diamond points.
