At Bows-N-Ties we carry dozens of solid color handkerchiefs in stock at all times. Still not finding what you are looking for? Then let us know.
When to Wear What Bowtie
Just like the dress code suggests, Black Tie Attire, requires men to wear a classic black bow tie, while the even more formal White Tie dress code requires a solid white bow tie which is traditionally worn with a black tailcoat jacket, a waistcoat, and wing-collar tuxedo dress shirt. Slightly less formal than the black or white bowtie are other solid colored ties. For evening attire, darker color shades are better suited such as dark navy, burgundy, silver, and charcoal. For semi-formal day-time attire, such as spring and summer weddings, lighter & brighter colored >bowties> are also an excellent choice. Good examples here are bows in apple-green, lemon yellow, bright orange, peach, coral, pink, and fuchsia.
Then there are the more casual types of >bowties> which usually show fine patterns such as checks, stripes, and polka dots. These bowties don’t need to be worn with a black tuxedo by any means. Think about the college-professor look for example! Good ways to wear these bow ties is with blazer jacket, and a non-matching, but harmonizing pocket square. To learn formal vs. casual ways to fold a pocket square please visit our section titled How to Fold a Handkerchief.
Finally men have the option to tie their own bow tie with so-called freestyle bowties, or wear a pre-tied clip on version. While the first is the definite choice of the bowtie aficionado, the average man, the one that only occasionally wears a bow to special occasions, typically chooses a pre-ted bow. All our bowties come prettied. The bows are worn around the neck, and the length easily adjusts to fit almost any collar size. Should you still want to tie your own then your instructions on How to Tie a Bow Tie might be of help.
Self-Tied Vs. Pre-tied Bowties
The true bow tie aficionado will insist on a bow tie he tied himself. A pre-tied bow tie, although much more convenient, is considered a fashion Faux Pas by the bow tie lover. While most men opt for the more convenient pre-tied bowtie, the regular bowtie wearer will always choose a self-tied bow or also known as freestyle bow tie. We at Bows-n-Ties.com suggest that for a classic black tie function you choose a bow tie you tied yourself. For instructions please visit our tutorial on necktie and bow tie knots.
