Sparro - It Seemed The Only Fitting Name For A 'Black & Gold' Bow Tie

I never understand why more men don't adopt the reverso bow ties we make. The example below is a dual sided black and gold bow tie. I have tied it to remove the twist in the centre knot so that the bow tie is gold except for a hint at the edges of black. Conversely, the wearer, should he wish to be a traditionalist, can turn the bow tie around the other way and tie it black. Alternatively you can tie it with a twist of the contrasting silk revealed through the centre knot. And yet, many men recoil from this concept. They don't want a second side, they find it not to their taste. I am not hear to judge them, but merely to point out the utility in having two bow ties packaged in one. It's not mickey mouse, it's a reverso, and it works.
