Publisher's description: The perfect adornment for the bookshelves of today's modern gentleman, The Bow Tie Book is the first illustrated book devoted to the classic menswear accessory. "If you have a swagger, a bow tie can be a badge of courage--The bow is not for the timid of heart--but a beautifully asymmetrical, slightly tousled bow is a perfect look for a romantic nonconformist man of style."--GQ style writer Glenn O'Brien. From its humble beginnings around the necks of seventeenth-century Croatian mercenaries, the bow tie has evolved to become one of the signature accessories in the modern gentleman's wardrobe. Once relegated to the uniforms of nerds, waiters, and wedding parties, bow ties now adorn the collars of men of all ages and appear on the runways of Paris and London as well as the streets of Brooklyn and Silver Lake. More than an accessory, bow ties tell the world you are a man of style, substance, and individuality; a man who likes to stand out in a crowd but is polite; a man who respects himself and those around him enough to put his best foot forward; a man of whimsy, intelligence, and imagination.
