Bow Ties

Designer men's bow ties offer self-assured poise and swagger in luxurious textiles, complimenting staid and colorful ensembles in equal measure. Long-time nemesis to the neck tie, the ever-enduring accessory has enjoyed a quiet renaissance in recent years, as heritage formal attire finds its footing against causal trends in an armada of carefully updated high-end offerings. Adjustable silk variants concede contemporary convenience without giving away their aura, taking hook-eye fastenings to maintain a crisp, iconic silhouette with ideally pared-down preparation time. Jacquard polka dot and check patterns in select pieces give options with whimsy and character to add contrast or dandy-ish flourish. Voluminous, colorful bow ties lend technicolor charm to the most understated of attires, while monochromatic self-tied versions achieve classic repose when the occasion calls for crisp formality and restraint. In our mix-and-match era, the bowtie finds increasing use in more informal contexts as well, pairing with off-duty ensembles as juxtaposed formal accent.
