Take Your Suit Game Up a Notch With a Bow Tie

A bow tie can take an everyday business suit or fancy dinner fit to the next level. From an all black silhouette to more playful creations, a bow tie can make a simple suit look sophisticated. A bow tie also indicates that you’re a touch playful, dont’ take yourself too seriously, and lean toward the dandy-side of style and fashion. And there’s nothing at all wrong with that. Some of the best and coolest men in the world have worn bow ties. See: James Bond, Le Corbusier, Karl Marx, and Alton Brown.

In short, a bow tie says: I’m here for a good time and I’m not going to sacrifice my style in order to do so.
