The Art Of Being Too Hard On Yourself

Will Boehlke has written a small vignette on 'The Art Of Composition' which essentially criticises himself for the way he chose this ensemble. We think he is being a little too hard on himself but agree that there is an artfulness to choosing how everything should come together. Read that article here:

Will is wearing a 'Hunter' (the heart shaped silk we called Amanda), a diamond point bow shape that we came up with for a client in Los Angeles who wrote in asking if we could emulate the shape of a bow tie he had inherited from his grandfather. We then named the shape after the client. That pattern is now on file and we can always cut it in any silk when requested. The diamond point, although not mainstream, is a very popular shape amongst bow tie enthusiasts. We have roughly four diamond point shapes. They are: the Hunter (shown), the Niles, the batwing diamond point and the Mikali (which is essentially a modified butterfly with diamond points).
