Ever had trouble tying a bow tie? I often get asked how to tie bow ties by folks whilst out and about at local stalls and markets. It seems with mainstream men’s labels now fazing out the self-tie bow tie, this life skill that was once pasted down the generations to sons by their fathers is being lost.
We understand, it can be pretty tricky figuring it all out on your own, and some of the tutorials and online guides out there aren’t really helpful, more often than not confusing the matter even more. Though never fail! We’ve found an easy-to-follow illustrated guide by the dapper folk over at The Art of Manliness. A couple of attempts using these steps, and you’ll be tying perfect bows in no time.
All of our bow ties over at the online shop are self-tie bow ties, though they come pre-tied when we send them with adjustable clips for those not so adventurous. Why not un-tie that baby and give these steps a whirl! #SayNO to Pre-Tied Bow Ties!
Also, if video demonstrations work for you, here is a YouTube guide I found way back that is rather helpful.
