Here's the bow tie I'm sporting today:
Skyvue I really like that one, very nice.
Thanks. Today was the first time I've worn it. I thought it looked a bit faded and worn, but a closer look convinced me to go for it.
That is one reet, petite, solid, and gone tie!
Bought this from etsy. Seller told it was from the 40s but I think it would be too small for this?
as a general rule (but not definitive) ... the straighter, skinnier bow ties tend to go with trends for skinnier trousers; the early 20s and 60s.
Thanks. Yes. I was thinking late 50s because I dislike the 60s even more but OK. Maybe it is 20s Haha. I have another bow tie from the same seller that said "20s" Almost the same size as the "40s" :eusa_doh:
late 50s to early 60s is pretty much the same thing. who's your shirt by ?
Check out this beauty from Japan's Adjustable Costume:
@ flattop: Yes. That's how I imagine a 40s bowtie. Good repro.
@ hbk: It's from levis. The stitching on the collar is rather raw and it has a western yoke back. But I like the thick cotton fabric and the mop buttons.
These are some really nice ties! You're making me wish I had more with pointed ends! I really like that look!
Running a little late: this is from last Friday. It's a navy blazer, pink shirt and black tie. Remarkably, there were no "formal affair" comments from the wags at work..
From a day ago.
From a couple of days ago.
Today's foray into the world of Bow Tie Friday. Sort of a slate blue sort of blue, sort of.
Okay I need some advice. I know it's generally considered a fashion no-no to wear a tie with a short sleeved shirt, unless you're looking for the NASA 60's master control look. Admittedly I've indulged in this look before a few times. But now that it's getting hot and humid where I'll probably start wearing short sleeves more often. With a rack of bow ties staring back from my closet every morning...I'm wondering if bow ties & short sleeves would be looked upon the same as a long tie? I found one picture of Ian Fleming wearing a short sleeved shirt with a bow tie. Is that enough justification to do it?
Well he did live in Jamaica. He looks pretty good to me, however. I say do it with confidence and you will carry it off.
Much of what we regard as fashion advice may have originated in Europe which historically has cooler weather than much of the USA. We have heat and in some places humidity in the summer that can make being dressed up an uncomfrotable task. The Brits in Jamaica and some of the tropical areas did concide to the heat and made some changes for it. If the creator of James Bond did it, it's good enough for me.
Heck, that's good enough reason to do it. Although I tend to think of short-sleeve shirts with skinny ties.
