1. It’s different
First and foremost, it’s different. You won’t look just like your neighbour or your father. A bow tie allows you to be an individual and continue to subscribe to the style of YOU. Because you’re worth it.
2. You’re in good company.
A lot of famous people, politicians and celebs wear bow ties. Abraham Lincoln; Winston Churchill; Leke Alder etc. are
some notable bow tie enthusiasts… 3. It’s a conversation starter.
People will be encouraged to approach you and start conversation. If you regularly stumble over small talk and are inadequate at feigning interest in your friend’s children, consider joining the bow tie community. That’ll give you something to talk about .
4. You seem… friendlier 😊 A bow tie immediately breaks down your harsh exterior, at least until you ask your friend’s girlfriend if she’s pregnant (she is not). 5. You can get away with things you can’t while wearing a neck tie: “That dude just slapped me in the face for no reason”
“Well, what did you do?”
“Nothing…. He – he was wearing a bow tie.” 6. The patterns are radder
Sure you can get funky patterns for neck ties, but would you ever wear one? Wearing a rad pattern on a neck tie is tacky. On a bow tie, it’s cool. And that’s science.
7. Bow ties are cool.
8. It’s safe to assume you know things
Don’t lie. You’ve looked admirably at a guy wearing a bow tie to a wedding and just thought, “yup, this guy’s got it figured out.” Caution, when you wear a bow tie people will assume you have at least an intermediate knowledge of the following:
The earth’s gravitational pull on the moon.
9. You can use the act of adjusting your bow tie as punctuation after a sentence
Tell a good joke? Adjust your bow tie. Make an awkward comment? Adjust your bow tie. Compliment a lady? Adjust your bow tie. See what I’m saying…
10. Because you’ll need to figure out how how to tie one
We thinking knowing how to tie a bow tie is just as important as knowing how to tie a neck tie.
