The perfect bow tie should not be perfect. The image many people think of when they begin wearing bow ties is the perfect bow that comes tied in the box. Some guys may not wear bow ties because they can’t tie the perfect knot.
The fact is a bow tie is rarely perfect. Even if it starts out that way in the morning it will never make it through the day in the same condition. If there is a place for sprezaturra in an ensemble it should be the bow tie. Small imperfections are what give each knot character.
