However, in case you’re lazy, there are many already ready to wear, but they look decidedly too perfect. In fact, it’s the asymmetry of the classic bow tie to give it that magical aura. The bow tie has 3 main forms: “butterfly”, “long and narrow” or “pointed”, each of them may be more or less large. The width of the bow tie should not exceed the width of the face and, indeed, should not be larger than the width of the neck. In the shirt, the collar must be tended to small, or with the tips elusive outwards (“French”) in such a way that these do not snack from under the bow tie.

Today, the types of bow ties are numerous and suitable in every season, in addition to the classic bow tie in black shiny silk, perfect in the evening, there are some in wool, cashmere, denim, flannel and tweed, often with patterns, perfect for autumn and winter.
