"The 5 Best Bow Ties"

(You can buy this Autumn Winter 2012)

24th October, 2012

At last, we are providing you with 5 different choices you can find currently in the market for your perfect choice of bow tie, starting from the most expensive one.


Please note all these bow ties maintain the required features of adjustable neck strap and hook closure, which you should always look for in any bow you are willing to buy.

1. ARMANI - £95 (€115, $180)


A silk and velvet bow tie from Armani that you can use not only for your “black tie” occasions, but also for smarting up your casual dressing before an evening with friends.

It is in typical Armani style (slightly shiny, relatively thick) and available in burgundy, black and blue. 



2. LANVIN - £95 (€115, $180)


An unconventional and very elegant knitted bow tie (yes, we love texture...) with double layers in pure 100% silk.

Please note this is a “self-tie”, so you need to practice your tying skills to get the best from this item (if you have any difficulty, don’t forget our video in the previous post).



3. DSQUARED2 - £85 (€105, $165)


Dsquared2's Dean and Dan Caten have been the masters of bow ties in informal wear since the early days (check out above an image from their AW09 collection back in January 2009), so we are morally obliged to have the silk and twill bow tie from DSquared for AW12 (currently sold out in many European department stores) in our dedicated selection.

An amazing soft bow tie slightly pointed.

4.  BROOKS BROTHERS - £55 (€70, $95)


A pre-tied 100% silk bow tie available in plain colours and in diagonal thin stripes.

Brooks Brothers offers a reasonable compromise between quality and price: perfect for those occasions which do not require elegance at all costs.




5. TOPMAN - £12 (€17, $21) 


A simple and very cheap bow tie with a black weaving print on a grey background.

This would suit a look that wants to be funny and witty, and not to be taken too seriously.


And at last:


Out of Category - SWAGGER & SWOON - £17 (€27, $30)


Swagger & Swoon’s gingham check bow tie in 100% cotton is perfect for when you want to add an “elegant” element to a very casual look, such as a combo of shirt, denim and sporty jacket.

Please use it always on a white shirt: it will have a great effect around.


I hope you enjoyed our simple selection of our 5 best picks for bow ties for this AW12.
