Sunday August 28, 2016 is Bow Tie Day.

“A whirling noise in the distance, followed by a male in a bow tie and a female in a summer dress running out of a blue police box. A small wooden puppet with a large blue bow tie that is still there when the puppet comes to life. Or a sharply dressed man hunting around for information in order to save the world from annihilation. All three examples are notable by a bow tie that the character wears. Whether it be the Doctor from Dr. Who, Pinocchio, or James Bond, each wears a bow tie very well, and accentuates it for that very character.

Typically the bow tie is worn as an accessory to accentuate the neck, helping draw eyes up to the face and away from the shoulders and chest.

How to celebrate Bow Tie Day:
Snag a bow tie and wear it! It is that simple, although tying a bow tie isn’t! Many pieces of clothing can be paired with the flourished bow, and probably the most notable look is the button up shirt. Sure, it may look a little dated, but the classics never truly die…. bow ties have been worn by people looking to make better impressions since the 17th century.

Many characters have been notably wearing bow ties, including the ever popular James Bond, in all of his different actors, the bow tie is always there, giving the actor an air of distinguished quality. There has been the infamous Dr. Nye, who wears a bow tie while explaining how, and why, science works. His quote, “If you’re working with liquid nitrogen and your tie falls into it, it’s funny in a way to the audience but it’s also — pun intended — a little bit of a pain in the neck.” really drives home the differences between a neck tie and a bow tie. So don’t underestimate the use of this small, but extremely elegant addition to your dressing up, and wear them with pride this Bow Tie Day!” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’

    I knew it was Dr. Who from your opening line! It’s definitely an over-looked piece of male fashion. ~ Rheta
