Bow ties of the wooden variety are sprouting up around the world and enjoying a splinter of the fashion limelight.
While wooden bow ties might evoke a love- or hate-it reaction in some, the style has become trendy and might be settling its roots.
Indeed, the ties seem to be growing in popularity.
Wooden bow ties are featured in photo shoots, they’re in shops, and the ties seem to be a hit among fashion-savvy millennials–who might ensure the longevity of the wooden bow tie.
It’s easy to understand why many men like wooden bow ties. This type of tie is undeniably masculine, modern, and bold.
There is something about the combination of wood and cloth that I find appealing.
I appreciate how the durability of the symmetric wooden bows compliments the refinement of the modest, yet alluring, fabric knot.
Moreover, the extended wooden bows are bold, while the centerpiece [usually cloth, but I’ve seen twine, leather, and wood] is often eye-catching yet modestly charming. In addition, wooden bow ties can be festive, whimsical, and fun.
As a consequence, the wearer of a wooden bow tie might be viewed as dashing, daring, and delightful.
Speaking of delight, I was happy to connect on Twitter with a brand in Europe that makes wooden bow ties.
