The Bow Tie Book


‘If you have a swagger, a bow tie can be a badge of courage…The bow is not for the timid of heart…but a beautifully asymmetrical, slightly tousled bow is a perfect look for a romantic nonconformist man of style.’ GQ style writer Glenn O’Brien

From its humble beginnings around the necks of seventeenth century Croatian mercenaries, the bow tie has evolved to become one of the signature accessories in the modern gentleman’s wardrobe. Once relegated to the uniforms of nerds, waiters, and wedding parties, bow ties now adorn the collars of men of all ages and appear on the runways of Paris and London as well as the streets of Brooklyn and Silver Lake. More than an accessory, bow ties tell the world you are a man of style, substance, and individuality; a man who likes to standout in a crowd but is polite’ a man who respects himself and those around him enough to put his best foot forward’ a man of whimsy, intelligence, and imagination.

The Bow Tie Book includes a brief history of the bow tie and features more than 100 full colour and black and white photographs of bow tie-wearing men, along with quotes and essays from bow tie wearers, designers, and their admirers. It also includes over 200 full colour illustrations crated specially for this book by noted artist James Gulliver Hancock, as well as a fully illustrated and removable ‘How to Tie a Bow Tie’ cheat sheet. The Bow Tie Book makes the perfect gift for the uniquely stylish man.
