Tip #5 

A bow tie can either be the perfect complement to an outfit or a distraction, so choose wisely. If you're already rocking a loud pattern, opt for more neutral neck wear.

You may feel awkward at first but I promise every time Marc wears a bow tie the compliments pour in. So get over yourself and give it a try.

True story: it took me four Youtube videos and about 30 minutes of cussing in frustration for not being able to make the bow tie look perfect...don't let this challenge overcome your fashion statement! Get your lady to help....or not. This is my favorite video for making the magic happen:



I call Bullshit on the following statements:

  • They say that Wearing a bow tie should not require any strenuous effort (not true, your first time experiencing the complications of tieing one will not only be strenuous but frustrating!) in Juan Pablo voice "it's ok", just breathe! 
  • They also say Its precisely the same knot you use to tie your shoes (I have never tied my shoes in this fashion...but ok) 
  • A guy should not wear a bow tie if he cannot tie it himself (not true...what the heck is your woman for? I take credit and pride in being able to tie my mans Bow Tie!)  
Bow tie fashion rocks our world, the good news: with practice you too can rock this fashion statement.
