The Bow Tie

Bow ties are available in the same ranges of colours and patterns as the classic tie.
Generally black, a bow tie is worn with black evening dress and a white shirt with a “broken” collar. It can also be worn more casually with a suit and a shirt with a wide-spaced collar.

The Bow Tie
Tying the Bow Tie:
Step 1: Adjust the tie to have one end lower than the other.
Step 2: Around your neck, lay the longer end over the shorter end.
Step 3: Slide the lower end up and under the bow.
Steps 4 and 5: Make the two butterfly wings by folding the shorter end horizontally.
Step 6: Fold the wider end over the front of the knot being formed.
Step 7: Then hide the longer end under the folded part.
Step 8: Finally, adjust the knot by pulling gently on both bows.

In theory, when finished, the ends of the two bows should align with the pupils of your eyes.
