Picking the right bow tie


I love looking at new fabrics, imagining how a certain pattern might look when it is sown into a bow tie. There’s a lot of things I consider when choosing the fabrics for the Ventie bow ties. The feel of the fabric, the color and how well I believe the pattern will look when the bow tie is done. These are the same questions you should ask yourself when choosing your bow tie.

  1. Where are you going to wear it, who will you meet and what image of yourself do you want to project?
    – A formal dinner might require a different bow tie than a night at town or a picnic down in the park.
  2. What are you going to wear it with?
    – This of course is, in many ways, covered by question one. But, combining colors might require some getting used to. At the same time bow ties gives you a lot of freedom as I covered before. Colors is one thing. Patterns and fabrics is another. Weather you will be wearing the bow tie with a suit, a cardigan or with a plain shirt must also be considered.
  3. Do you want to blend in or stand out?
    – Are you going with a subtle style or do you want people to notice your bow tie as soon as they see you?
  4. Does it represent who you are?
    – A bow tie gives you a possibility to give others, even strangers, a glimpse of your personality. That’s one of the reasons I love them.

Here are a few options from the shop to get you started.
