Bow Ties

A display of shirts and bow ties at Stackpole Moore Tryon, a fine clothier on Trumbull Street in the center of downtown Hartford.



Did I mention that Hartford is a bit conservative?

You certainly don't see many bow ties anymore!

I didn't think anyone wore these anymore. Nice find.

I like this photo! It reminds me of American Universities, teachers and education!

Did someone say bowties? I wore my Christmas wreath bowtie last week and I think it was a hit!

Hi Jack! Love the photo blog! Glad to hear that retirement is suiting both you and Kitty well.

Lol, looks like it! Over here the craze is shocking pink. Yes, for men. No, not specifically for some men.

You rarely see bow ties worn here except for black tie dinners. They seem to suggest a certain sort of man - wealthy, intellectual, comfortable to be the centre of attention but a bit maverick.... or just old-fashioned!

The only bow tie I've seen in the last 50 years was worn by Larry King!

And it sounds as though you're my kind of golfer!

I have recently bought my first.It's a blue/yellow paisley number. I LOVE it. I'll try anything once. Worn it twice... lots of compliments.
