What Is National Bow Tie Day? National Bow tie day is an annual celebration honoring the timeless style of the bow tie on August 28th, an important date in the diary for the well dressed.
Where Did The Bow Tie Originate From?
The bow tie dates back to 17th century Croatia, where mercenaries would use scarves to bind the collars of their shirts shut. The fashion-conscious French military were quick to notice this, and soon the streets of Paris were adorned with well-to-do Frenchman wearing them and referring to them as “corvette’s”. Over time the corvette evolved into what we know today as the bow tie.
How To Tie One
Harder than it looks, but a skill worth having...
- 1. Start with the bowtie lying face up. Adjust the bowtie so right side is shorter than the left. The end on the left will be referred to as A and the end on the right will be referred to as B.
- 2. Move A to the right side, across B.
- 3. Bring A under B and up through the neck loop.
- 4. At the joint, fold B towards the right and then towards the left to create a the bow shape.
- 5. Bring A straight down over the middle of the bow shape that was made with B.
- 6. Fold A back towards the chest and pinch the fold.
- 7. Push the pinched end (A) through the loop behind B.
- 8. Pull on the folded parts of the bow to tighten.
- 9. Adjust until balanced on both sides.
