Heck yeah, Cattus! Nice!
Thank you, gents.
This one is from Christmas Eve
You've upped your game CP. Very suave.
My game is still stalled.
I posted to your comment in another thread. Think of it as tying a shoelace under your chin, with a really wide lace.
The trick is to remember to hold the first part of the bow well enough to slip the bow from the other side behind it without losing the grip on everything. Kind of difficut at first, but when you've done it a few times you'll wonder why it seemed so hard at first.
It helped me to watch myself slowly tie my shoelaces and watch how the looped parts of the bow interacted. I'm willing to bet that learing to tie one of those skinny (non-wavy) bow ties is probably easier than learning to tie a butterfly tie.
Thank you - I've just had my first successful go. Not perfect, but I'm happy. A start.
Brooks Brothers tie. Not sure of age. Quite floppy.
Up to this point all my bow ties have been "Wi-Ties".... They are tied by my wife.
She taught me how, and I was amazed at how easy it was. However that was a few days ago and my fingers have forgoten how to do it.
No bad at all.
For those who don't remember how, this is my favorite tutoral:
Charles is the man. Two minutes and you're done.
Agreed! Sharp as a tack!
No idea about the era of this one, but it's the first bow tie I've run across in my usual haunts.
What we have here is the Bow-variant of the Four-In-Hands made during the Bold Look. Congratulations, you've found a 1940s Clip-On Bow!
Recently, I've found one very shiny striped bow from the 1950s, and a Linen bow that may be modern, but still found at Goodwill and has a neat design. It's VERY hard to find a bow in a thrift store, but they're out there.
Awesome! Thanks for the input.
The thrift store I found it in is one that I've had very good luck in the past finding 40s & 50s ties, but like I said, this is the first bow.
I love that one. Great find. Very Unique design.
This gentleman sure knew how to sport a bow tie! Certainly looks better then the bum next to him!
Are you serious! You are really going to refer to him as a bum? A great American like him.
Gorgeous! I'd love any necktie in that fabric, but this is especially sharp. Self-tie or clip on?
The shoelaces analogy I found helpful too. That and some good videos on youtube. I realised a couple of years ago I techincally do it a bit "wrong" because I put the second loop to the front rather than behind the first one, but having tried it both ways, it makes no appreciable difference to the end result for me, so. I've never owned a single-ended bow, of course.....
Practice is all it takes. I wear a bow to the office three or four days a week; once you do it regularly, it's as easy as a four in hand.
Thanks Edward. It's a clip-on. First and only one I have, for now.
