2014 Le Noeud Papillon Portrait Competition: Entrant #7, Jay R. Mohanka, Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, USA

How could I refuse this entry? Despite being pixelated it is charming, it has character and it comes from someone who loves bow ties. Below is what Jay R. Mohanka had to say about his ensemble.


my name is Jay Mohanka and I would like to submit this photo for the Bow Tie Portrait Competition. I am on the right of this picture and my cousin is sitting next to me on the chariot about to get married.  I love reading Le Noeud Papillon's blog and learning about bow ties, but I can not afford them, so I am entering this portrait competition. In fact, I have bought this whole outfit that I am wearing for a grand total of 185 USD. I live in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, USA, but this photo was taken in Mumbai, India.

Black Satin Bow Tie by The Tie Bar, Formal Shirt by Hugo Boss, Homemade Pocket Square, Double-Breasted Lavender Blazer by Oleg Cassini, White Satin Suspenders by The Tie Bar, Tuxedo Trousers by Nordstrom, Black Patent Leather Oxfords by Delli Aldo, and one of my favorite items I own, my Black Silk Formal Hose by Brooks Brothers.  

I just wanted to thank you for creating such high-quality bow ties and your blog, I love reading it and hope it continues for a long time.  

Jay R. Mohanka
