Happy National Bow Tie Day, everyone!
I wore a bow tie to a wedding a couple weeks ago. Garnered lots of comments, especially from the ladies that were present. My wife told me I am to never wear it again.
They’re really stretching it for new holidays. Myself, I’m waiting for National Crotchless Panties Day.
I wasn’t allowed to wear a bow tie to my wedding. (She also nixed my backup plan – a fez – and a stingy trilby after that. ‘Stop scrunching your hair!’)
I often receive compliments on Bow Tie Wednesdays when I go out for lunch.
Bow ties are cool.
I think so.
Willy Wonka Tell you about how I tied it myself? Well, first I put it around my neck. Then I used the long end to make an overhand knot. Next I brought the short end up into position and brought the long end over it. Then I folded up the ends of the short end and passed the middle of the long end through the hole in the knot. Then I pulled it tight and adjusted it.
And, of course, The Doctor.
This is what I was referring to…
My tech lead wears bow ties at the office sometimes. He can pull it off. I don’t think I can. I wear one once a year, at the Breast Cancer Awareness Pub Trivia that my local pub. It’s pink. (My bow tie. Not the pub. The pub is more of a dark red.)
I can remember when John Molloy (Dress for Success) said, “In general, I have found that people believe that a man in a bow tie will steal.” It was about 1977.
