According to Wikipedia, The bow tie is a type of men's necktie. It consists of a ribbon of fabric tied around the collar in a symmetrical manner such that the two opposite ends form loops. Ready-tied bow ties are available, in which the distinctive bow is sewn into shape and the band around the neck incorporates a clip. Some "clip-ons" dispense with the band altogether, instead clipping to the collar. The traditional bow tie, consisting of a strip of cloth which the wearer has to tie by hand, may be known as a "self-tie," "tie-it-yourself," or "freestyle" bow tie to distinguish it from these.
Bow Ties have become more acceptable in everyday fashion and lifestyle. You can find many different people in all professions wearing bowties. The style of a Bow tie should not be altered at all, which brings me to the question: Why are Regular Neckties being tied into a Bow Tie? Where did the style come from?
Bow Ties symbolize gentlemen of high stature, prestige, elegance, and class. Neckties are exactly what the name says “NECKTIE” by tying it into a bow tie it takes away the essence of a bow. Necktie usually ranging between 57” and 62” long does not hold the form of an actual bow. I’ve seen guys in the past and instantly recognize when a Necktie has been misshapen into a bow tie, it looks long up against the neck and extremely wide, kind of like a clown. So please be aware of this fad and hopefully it will soon die out, so that the bow tie can uphold its own essence of being, which is to be a BOW TIE.
