My brother thinks they're for hipster twats only, but I reckon I can pull it off.
Any other bowtie wearers here?
Your brother is entirely correct.
Thanks for the support bro
But I'm in the midst of purchasing a jaguar-print suit.
Wearing one in a Wetherspoon's in any provincial town up-North would just generate hundreds of sardonic "have you been to a wedding pal?" type questions, or perhaps "look at that twat in a bow-tie" or "why you wearing a bow-tie?"
if you're the office bore, y'know, the sort who knows everything about Doctor Who and comes across as a bit autistic, but is also slightly eccentric.
Maybe it is though, is it, I don't know?!
Nah it's not!
Can you please fit a gps device to it so I can avoid our mutual hauntswhen yyou're out with it?
(if anyone can pull it off, you can, you dandy.)
Btw, don't wear it in london this weekend. It's a bit 2011. Glasgow on the other hand, will not know what's hit it (ie you're getting your cunt kicked in if you go East of Charing cross).
I rarely go east of charing cross! :)
Bit of an impulse buy, had I not had a fair bit of wine I may not have purchased.
*readjusts tweed flat cap to "jaunty" angle* (not even kidding).
Tell that to my boy Tinie!
I raided his dressing room a few weeks ago. Highland spring water was the only thing worth nicking. Wish he'd left some clothes! ! 111
but I think this might be too much even for you to pull off
Me and my jaunty flat cap (do you want it pal?)
I really need more tweed in my life
And I'm happy to accept! :)
I own one black bow tie, that I wore to a black tie event.
Where did I get this reputation!?
Maybe don't answer that.
Are you one of those?
but then shat it, so you have cajones if nothing else
depends what you're teaming it with i suppose:
denim shirt: thundercunt
nicely fitted plain shirt & suit jacket: passable
in short, pics or GTFO
Nicely fitted white shirt, tweed jacket wasy thinking! :)
fire on! :)
then i think it might be best avoided
If not you're in danger of falling somewhere between overpreppy, Shoreditch, or worst of all like you're peacocking.
Always some suave sonofabitch who can get away with it tho I guess
Don't let us down please.
dr who fan
I feel now is the time to give it a bash, if nothing else I will have a post for the 'regretful fashion decisions' thread! :)
washed grey band t-shirts
and you seem to know your stuff.
Definitely put a picture up here.
I don't think I've ever not been in support of a nominal DiS fashion crime, but you're on your own with this one. No-one can pull off a casual bow-tie. No-one.
And don't call me Jesus! :)
I looked like an absolute prize bellend.
You live and learn
so make of that what you will
that you are friends with brother mouzone
like your style...
They're very cute.
that "cute" is what's being aimed for by precisely 0% of bow tie wearers throughout history.
http://www.swaggerandswoon.com/product_info.php/black-crossover-bow-tie-p-2342 for a wedding a year ago. Looked pretty sweet but there was a lot of KFC/Snooker based sledgey-bants to endure.
if you have the style and panache as part of your general demeanour to carry it off, then good for you. It really does require a certain sense of sprezzatura.
However, 99% of people who try it end up looking like amateur magicians, which is never a good look.
What you think you look like: http://prettycleverfilms.com/files/2013/03/indiscreet-cary-grant-1958-everett.jpg
What you actually look like: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_qyS32T2ilz0/TBVddujCiCI/AAAAAAAAAJs/yMgRhqVAfZU/s1600/IMG_2007.JPG
Let them prance around in their band t-shirts and bootcut jeans!
Lo-Pan, you're going to look a right tosser, sorry
you can untie it, get hammered at home before going out, and then wherever you are you'll look like you just got proper large at a massive posh do and are now out on the town.
It's the look every man should aspire to
is that the women of DiS are into bowties, and the men are deeply threatened by them. just sayin' #teambowtie
my mate wears one a lot and he looks good, he's not a dick either, he's lovely
Maybe I'm a dick though and everyone is just being polite
strong look tbf
You handsome bastard
Last night I saw a friend wearing a bowtie though and I think they're a bit awful again.
You might as well start wearing courds and rolling your t-shirt sleeves up.
