I love bow ties and so wish men wore them more often. They’re just so dapper. I definitely tried to convince Scott to wear a vintage liberty floral bow tie for our wedding. Sadly, he remained unconviced and went bow tie-less.
But that’s just me rambling. How sweet would a handmade bow tie be for one of your favourite menfolk to find under the tree this Christmas? You could match it to their favourite shirt, or go a bit wild with plaid, stripes, polkadots or a sweet liberty print (I know, I am obsessed).
Really any medium weight fabric will do nicely. Here I went with denim that matches one of Scott’s favourite shirts. I guess I’ll never give up on trying to get him to share my love of bow ties.
