    Is there anyone here on BB that still wears a Bow Tie?

    I think America needs a comeback for Bow ties.

    I don't agree with the comeback...but my 15-year old likes bow ties (probably from watching Dr. Who), and has taught himself how to tie one.

    Me, only with a tuxedo, and only pre-tied.

    I've thought about it for church. If nothing else it would be different than the normal open collar dress/sport shirt I normally wear.

    I've thought about it ... for maybe a half-second. Didn't even wear one for our wedding. It was a formal cravat.

    I really have no desire to look like Les Nessman ...

    ... nor do I have any desire for someone to walk up to me and present me with the "Silver Sow" award.

    I used to wear a bow tie in college. My way of rebelling since ties were required. I also wore a bright gold double breasted blazer with black pinstripes and orange buttons. Was told to retire that jacket quick.

    Never thought about it much, but I suppose I could give it a try. Maybe a pink one in my hair. Sounds pretty. I agree that we should all try wearing one.

    Dr. Bob does. It's hard to picture him without one.

    What do you think of Bolo Ties? I have never worn one, but they look good.

    If someone wants to wear a bow tie that is their choice. I don't wear a tie at all if I can help it, and then it's not a bow tie. Wore a "regular" tie with the tux at my wedding.

    I have only worn a Bolo tie when I was working with the Boy Scouts. It does fit well in this area. Maybe at Cowboy Church.

    My 23 year old son wears them all the time to work and church and loves them. He will only wear ones he ties himself, and he is an expert at it. His absolute favorite vendor in the world: http://www.thecordialchurchman.com/
