bow-WOW!!

.
" the bigger the bow the smaller the hips..."
[ true words of wisdom to live by huh?! ]
Anywayyy...
~here are more lovely(& slightly normal size)summer bow ties*

Brooks Brothers, the iconic American brand, launches a bow tie collection just in time for the summer season with Social Primer’s founder, K. Cooper Ray. Exclusively designed and inspired by Brooks Brothers’ heritage of mixing vivid patterns and colors, the Social Primer for Brooks Brothers Bow Tie Collection is an innovative and playful take on the classic. The American made bow ties (manufactured in Long Island City, NY) have been re-imagined with a traditional yet irreverent perspective. Using pure silk or cotton fabrics, the collection features reversible styles that create not one but many ways to wear the bow tie. See the full collection here. Although they've been designed for the gentlemen...but Ladies, why not! They would look cute on anyone I think! I've been known to wear men's ties and clothings before...~have you or would you?
~XOXO*

I used to wear men's ties, not bow ties though. It takes a special person not to look like howdy doody and sport one. those are pretty cool ties, though.

Caroline said...

Ohhh...so if I wear that ginormous bow, my hips will look smaller. Woo Hoo...who needs to diet ;)

Aren't they so cool!
I don't see many men with a bow tie in Japan. I don't know why. Even my husband just keeps one somewhere in the closet. Did I see him wear it? I can't recall.
