Maybe I’ve been watching too many old movies lately, but I love when a man dresses up. There’s something about a crisp, white shirt, a tie, and the scent of Mennen Speed Stick that makes me weak in the knees.
That said, bow ties are making a comeback – they’re not just for Pee Wee Herman or elderly Southern gentlemen in seersucker suits anymore. I’ve been noticing a lot more men wearing them. Maybe they’re fashion-forward, or perhaps it’s because they’ve dripped soup on their neckties one too many times. So gentlemen, when you’re getting dressed this New Year’s Eve – consider a bow tie!
(If you want to make one – there’s a tutorial here!)
