Today’s Tip of the Day is a “Do Not”: Do not wear a bow tie with a spread collar.
It’s just not how they’re supposed to look. You ever see James Bond with a spread collar and a bow tie? Nope. Save the spreads for your windsor knot ties and if you are daring enough to wear a bow tie every now and then, do it with the right collar. Wearing a spread collar with a bow tie keeps parts of the tie visible that you do not want to be visible.
** Side tip** Don’t abuse the bow tie. Wear on occasions rather than often.
