    Fashion question for guys...

    Bow ties. Yay or nay?

    Yay! As you can see, I am wearing one in my profile pic. Clip on bow ties are a big time no. Ones you actually have to tie are a major yes!

    Nay. This is the new age, where bow ties aren't with the times.

    It depends on the occasion. I believe they still can have a place. But of course, my wife says I am not quite with the times when it comes to fashion :-)

    Yay if you can pull it off. You have to have the confidence to wear one.

    I think bowties are a must in black tie or white tie events. Nothing looks better with a tuxedo than a black bowtie. Most of the time, I think bowties look bad with a suit unless the wearer is trying to achieve a particular look. Bowties do not look bad in shirtsleeves if the wearer is seeking a daring, yet ironic geeky look. I see it in some settings and some young guys manage to pull it off.

    I think one should always tie their bowtie and never wear a pre-tied or clip-on rig.

    To wear or not wear a bowtie...is a matter of personal preference and individuality, like so many other things in fashion. In a world of suits and ties, a man secure enough in his own self-image to sport a bowtie is sure to gain attention. Other men are secretly wishing they had his nerve, while women are admiring his rakish good looks and charm. As a former men's clothier, I found that my clients who loved their bow ties also tended to be incredibly successful and regarded as extremely bespoke in their appearance. One final tip...clip-on bowties are an extreme no-no!
