Forage Bow Ties

June 8, 2011

The bow tie originated among Croatian mercenaries during the Prussian wars of the 17th century: the Croat mercenaries used a scarf around the neck to hold together the opening of their shirts. This was soon adopted (under the name cravat, derived from the French for “Croat”) by the upper classes in France, then a leader in fashion, and flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries. – Wikipedia

There is nothing classier than a man in a bow tie. As I prepare for two little boys that will arrive in August I’m constantly looking for mini bow ties that can be worn with a mini suit or even a par of khaki’s. In the recent years we’ve seen the traditional black bow tie come and go but colorful yet trendy bow ties have really been the ones to catch my eye. After researching I must say I really like Forage’s bow ties the best. While being causal in texture they really are perfect for that close up shot that one can frame and keep forever. Take a look at some of my favorites below:

Always wondered how to tie a bow tie? Here is a diagram that will be really helpful to you. Enjoy!
