Bow ties originated from the Prussian wars of the seventeenth century, though they have changed and evolved over the years into the ties we recognise today. Though falling out of fashion in the latter half of the twentieth century, bow ties are making a comeback! They are no longer confined to black tie events thanks to the wide variety of styles and fabric patterns available. They can even be worn as part of a casual outfit with a pair of braces for a quirky geek chic look!
Bow ties can be self-tied or clip-on, but all of our bow ties are traditional self-tied. Learning to tie one is just as easy as learning to tie a standard straight tie, but the great thing about bow ties is that they look just as stylish untied draped around the neck as they do done up!
