Bow Ties back in style

for the man in your life...

Bow ties are back in fashion, and look better than ever.  Not necessarily worn with a tuxedo, but with a well cut, and perfectly fitting suit.

Class is back in style, but with your own quirky, unique touches.  
Here's how to tie a traditional bow tie:

Start with the end in your left hand extending 4 centimetres below that in your right hand.

Cross the longer end over the shorter end and pass through the loop.

Form the front loop of the bow by doubling up the shorter end (hanging) and placing it across your collar points

Hold this front loop with your thumb and forefinger of your left hand. Drop the long end down over the front.

Place the right forefinger, pointing up, on the bottom half of the hanging part. Pass up behind the front loop

Poke the resulting loop through the know behind the front loop.

Even ends and tighten.
