If I had to choose one shape of bow tie to keep for life then, although our modified butterfly is highly prized, I would choose a diamond point for sheer practicality. It stows easily in the pocket, still gives a great deal of presence when tied well and is quite possibly the easiest shape of bow tie to tie. Well, it's up there with the skinny batwing.
So when I was in a jam and running late for the airport and knowing that I had an interview scheduled in Los Angeles, I chose to pack more diamond points than our modified butterflies when putting together my travel pouch of silk. As for neck ties, I do love them, but if you are in and out of Ubers, if you are changing your setting during the day, a bow tie is still the smallest bit of neck wear with the biggest impact.
