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, the style is certainly “trending”—and possibly settling its roots for the long haul. Indeed, people seem to love them.
I love wearing bow ties, and I’ve been sporting them long before their resurgence in popularity. In fact, over the years, I’ve worn both pre-tied and regular bow ties. I was always keenly aware that some gentlemen deride pre-tied bow ties. In my opinion, however, a news flash is in order for some of the modernity-challenged gentlemen out there.
