Pablo Picasso And The Role Of The Renegade Bow Tie Wearer

I have now read a lot passages on bows, ties, men's sartorial elegance and so on and one thread which keeps popping up is that men who achieved something significant in their lives, be it artistically, politically, economically, technologically.... The thread is that they played at some point with their neckwear. Be it an ascot, a foulard, a bow tie or even a standard tie, they did something which set themselves apart and yet it would often fall within the parameters of 'sartorial elegance' and was seldom vulgar. These men were truly renegades and yet held a great respect for tradition at the same time. They seem to live harmoniously with opposing ideas in their hearts, a natural sense of understanding the conflict that resides in the hearts of human beings. It gives me great pleasure to think that one day I might supply one of the heroes of our time with a tie or bow tie. God willing.
