After years of wearing the 'classic' bow, I experimented early with new designs and settled on one I had never seen before. The "Butter Knife" has it's distinction of being slender with a rounded leading edge which sets it apart from the traditional bow tie formed from angles and points. Like all my hand-crafted BowsNouveau bow ties, the Butter Knife is available in both the freestyle and hand-tied versions.
The Diamond Point or Diamond Tip Bow Tie shape is gaining popularity at a seemingly fast rate. Its edges are not flat like the other styles. They are pointed so as to give it its diamond shape. Its asymmetric look when tied adds a bit of gist to the self-tied bow tie but that dash is not lost when Hand-Tied. The diamond is a very stylish style that is not often seen but is gaining immense popularity.
To me the bow tie has always been about individuality. The introduction of this classic shape to my line was a necessary one when my design model evolved to include #nomoboringbows. Because “classic” can still be classy but it doesn’t have to mean boring.
