Bow ties are hot. However, clip-on’s are not. And yes, you can obviously tell when a man has tied his own bow tie or if he’s wearing a clip-on impostor. There is a regal elegance about a bow tie, a perfect imperfection in its knot. I think that is where many get mixed up, the bow tie is not suppose to be perfect. The first time my fiance wore a bow tie to a wedding we were late because he watched a hundred YouTube videos and none were all that informative. But once he got the knot right, boy was it right! He seriously stole the show and not one person he encountered didn’t comment on it his bow tie. The bow tie is just like any boy scout knot, once you’ve learned it, you will forever be a pro on tying it.
