There is a cafe owner that exists next to my Studio in Vaucluse who only wears white t-shirts and a denim apron at work each and every day. It's a very consistent, functional and clean look which suits his style of being. However, recently he said he was interested in wearing a bow tie to an upcoming event. I wasn't sure if he was pulling my leg as there is at times some tongue in cheek argy bargy that goes on between the Gen X and Gen Y'ers.
I am happy to report he meant what he said and I was so happy to see the result. For those of you silly enough to overlook the Spencer bow tie during the early days of the sale, you will note why you missed out, the smarter set know what a fantastic silk this is and looking at the image below you will see that it has really set off this wonderfully strong and clean look of navy suit, white shirt and bow tie. You don't need much more than this to look elegant. Personally I would have added a pocket square, but there is still time left for me yet to work on my Gen Y friend.
Yes, you younger set can pull of bow ties too.
