Giveaway: Bowtie from!

When we first came to seminary we thought that maybe some day Craig would pursue a doctorate and end up as a professor with one of those sweet tweed coats with the elbow patches, bowtie, and pipe.

We since settled for just the bowtie. I got him several of the tie-it-yourself variety several years ago and for the most part they have been unworn because, darn it, they are hard to tie. I did manage to follow a youtube video last Christmas and get a nearly perfect tie on him for a party we went to, but it hasn't happened since and I would have to watch the video again to reproduce it.

Enter the pretied bowtie from

They offer solid black bow ties as well as several colors such as red, blue, white, silver, grey, yellow, and multicolor bow ties. 

You can click here to see the whole selection of bowties on their site.  They also have a page of bowtie information here, and you can click here to learn how to tie a bowtie.

There you have it, everything you wanted to know about bowties. In truth, I prefer the look of the kind you tie yourself. But this pretied bow looks pretty good and in a pinch, would do the trick.

He's never worn a bowtie (except our wedding maybe?). He did have a tweed jacket with the patches though, but I'm not sure he wore it more than once and we eventually gave it away (or sold consignment, I can't remember). Good night!

My son would love this! He's a huge Michael Jackson fan, and this bowtie would look perfect with all his MJ stuff!

I read your toothfairy box review. I think that it is too much to pay for something like that, but they sure are cute!

This will be a better fad to follow than the rainbow suspenders were in the early 80's! :D

My husband always wears bowties. Our oldest son, age 4, does too. We have a 8 month son also, and he will be wearing them soon!

Dick is defintely a bowtie snob. The pre tied ones are low class, baby.
