I want to start wearing bow ties more often, but I only have a formal black one and a very nice patterened gray one. When I shop around for decent self-tie ties, I cringe at the cost. Are there any…Continue

Morning Gentlemen!So, I've been wearing the bow tie. I really dig it. One thing I've noticed is a little bit of fraying on the tops of the bow. My only guess is that it's caused by my coarse facial…Continue

I've recently started wearing the bow tie. I've tried in the past, just wasn't sure how or with what.  After doing some research, I've come to the conclusion that one can put one just about anything.…Continue

My wife bought me a bow tie for my birthday, my first tie-able bow tie (my military ones were the standard hook-and-loop type).  I'm wearing it to work today with a fedora and suspenders.  It looks just like this one:

The seniors at my school decided to have a dress up day last week. Many sported bow ties. All of them were clip-ons or were tied by their sisters. The next day I wore a bow tie so I could teach them all how to tie one. I told them that it was one of the Arts of Manliness.

I have made the vow to wear a bow tie once a week, if for no other reason than I don't want to forget how to tie one. And once I week, I get compliments for wearing one. We are the vanguards of fashion, gentlemen.

Thanks for the reminder Tom.  I wasn't aware of the holiday and will try to find some way of wearing a bow tie tomorrow, even if it is to the gym only.

Comment by kevin webster on August 27, 2013 at 1:51pm

it is yes and I will be wearing one of my finest especially.

It's been pretty quiet in here lately, but I thought I'd stop by and remind those in the U.S. that tomorrow, August 28 is National Bow Tie Day..........

Good sources for political opinions?

Most political sources online or in the media are pretty awful. Most online message boards especially are havens for fighting and lunatic fringe views.I've been doing a little research to find get an idea of what some more professionally written sources are - If anyone can give me some advice I'd appreciate.On the bottom of the barrel I rank minor blogs, Youtube channels, and most political message boards (where any anonymous person can contribute; ex. Democratic Underground). Just up from that…See More
