The Bow Tie

The Bow Tie is one of the accessories which takes all the looks and for the modern man is a customary from any formal attire.

The Bow Tie is a good alternative for those who don’t want to wear a tie but still the class from their attire must be shown. It consists of a ribbon of fabric tied around the collar in a symmetrical manner such that the two opposite ends form loops.

Some people say that the bow tie is related with the tie and but still looks like a scarf because of the loop. The Bow Tie is originated in Croatia during the Prussian Wars of the 17th century. They have been using a scarf around the neck to hold together by opening their shirts and soon the bow tie has been adopted by the high classes in France. Over time many important personalities of world history wore bow ties and we remember: Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, Harry Truman, Johan Krouthén and Sigmund Freud. (photo from left to right)

Even the bow tie is a formal accessory for a business man this outfit is associated to a nonconformist or an extravagant person. This thing is a little funny because in the early 90s the bow tie was an accessory only for politicians.

Now these gorgeous accessories have all colors and different shapes.
