How To Tie A Bow Tie

Did you know only 1% of the pop­u­la­tion (alleged­ly) knows how to tie a bow tie? That’s not very many peo­ple, but with this quick video, you can join those ranks.

Bow ties can be worn with either a suit or tuxe­do. They are per­fect for the styl­ish groom who wants to bring a lit­tle some­thing extra to his suit. With a tuxe­do, we def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend wear­ing a bow tie over a long tie (though, if that’s what you want, we won’t stop you). A bow tie allows you to show off your shirt studs and takes your look from sim­ply sharp to ultra dap­per.

Don’t think that bow ties only have to be black and white, though. While that may be what works best for a tux, bow ties with suits can come in an array of col­ors and pat­terns. The sky is the lim­it. For your wed­ding, choose a col­or in the palette and go from there. Sol­id col­ors are great, but so are stripes, pol­ka dots and flo­rals.

Are you still debat­ing between the long tie and a bow tie? Here is a post where we out­line all the ben­e­fits of each.

More “How-to” videos can be found on our blog and YouTube chan­nel.

Not quite to the putting-every­thing-on stage yet? No prob­lem.
