How To Tie A Bow Tie

The bow tie guide part 3

Once you know how to tie a bow tie, there are many occasions where you can wear one. If you wear them a lot, you probably know advanced ways of tying them. Hipsters wear them with just a regular shirt for everyday wear and it does not have to be an evening occasion, that is very formal.

Different bow tie shapes, number 3: Pointed-End Bow Tie

It’s like a little diamond and it has the advantage that it looks slightly different every time and depending on how much you pull it out on either end. In any case, it will always be asymmetrical because the pointed end is in the front on one side then the back on the other side. Overall, it’s a great option for daywear because it creates some form of casualness that’s a little more relaxed all the while being relatively formal. It flatters most face shapes and because of that, it’s a very versatile option.

Different bow tie shapes, number 4: Asymmetrical Bow Tie

The ends of the bow tie are not symmetrical either top to bottom or left side to right side. It might look really odd when a bow tie is untied but once you tie it, it creates that desired effect, but it is never 100% symmetrical and polished. This shape is for people who already have lots of regular bow ties in their closet and who simply want to change the look a little bit.

Different bow tie shapes, number 5: Single-End Bow Tie

It’s called that way because it has that bow tie shape only on one end. Once you tie it, it looks very similar to a regular bow tie with the exception that it’s cleaner and crisper because there’s simply just one layer of fabric. This style was popular for a short period in the 1930’s, especially for evening wear.
