    I have been wearing bow ties since college after being influenced by Winston Churchill, Christian Herter, Alan Dulles in the 1950s. Many men do not like bow ties and by transference the men who wear them. A former mayor of Boston used to make nasty remarks each time we met. In Boston there was a prejudice by Irish Americans against Yankee types who wore the bow. I myself always wore a four in hand when making sales calls or in that sort of first impression get togethers.

    I’ll be eighty years old next month and I still wear them. Do not care who cares.

  3. I like bow ties ,but over here NO ONE wears them so I will stick with my regimental repp stripes for the time being..

    Bow ties are good for clinicians and good when you are eating out. I like ties, all types of ties, and I wear them as much as possible both at work and at play. That includes dickie bows.

  5. Yes, let’s hear it for all types of neckties! And, as Vern points out above, not care who cares. No bow ties myself, but I jump at the chance to (and almost always) don a tie Monday through Friday between late August and early May during the academic year. Usually a four-in-hand knot, sometimes a half-windsor depending on the collar. And none of this silly no tie with a suit nonsense. That works with a sports jacket or blazer, but it looks like you forgot a key item when a suit is involved.

    Best Regards,

    I wear a bow tie about once a week (today, for example), and have done so, at least occasionally, since I learned how to tie one in my 20s. There was a humorous bit regarding the difference between scarves, ties and mufflers from a 1946 New Yorker posted recently by Sean Crowley (whom I first heard of through Ivy Style). https://www.instagram.com/p/ByqfN_rhMGN/ Hard to believe that a long tie was referred to as a scarf in 1946. In a 1948 Brooks catalog illustration I saw on line, the long ties were called ties, so it was probably simply an attempt to mock what the writer viewed as a hidebound enterprise.

  7. My most recent bowtie purchase was from Hanauer – a lovely fox head repeat on a green field. It’s getting too warm to wear it for the next few months in NYC, but once Autumn comes around, it will get more regular use.

    As a teen I exclusively wore bow ties in situations that called for neckwear; only as I entered my college years did I start to appreciate long ties. I now enjoy wearing either, as the mood strikes me. One of my favorite bows this summer is a Hanauer family product.

  9. I’ve been wearing only bow ties since I was three and I’m now just shy of 80
    My grandparents were edwardians and this as a child dressed for breakfast
    Love, just love the the articles maker of bow ties
    Thank you
