BOW TIE SHAPE - Diamond Point
FAMOUS OWNERS - Abraham Lincoln and Daniel Crag as James Bond
THE LOOK - The shape is very close to the traditional butterfly that we all know it's not a massive shape diffrence like the Jumbo Butterfly. It is never in or out of style and that's why I love it. It's these slight details that make a man the asymmetric shape says i'm a modern man not a trendy one not fashion forward i just have impecibale taste. The Astron Martin of bow tie shapes.
WHY DO I NEED ONE? - It's the same size as a traditional bow tie so it's not a big jump in what you are doing now with the traditional butterfly shape. It's just an ever so slight modern tweak. Similar to our gun metal tie clip hiding in the shadows. The diamond point actually looks very interesting as well when the night winds down and you untie the bow tie one of my favorite looks by the way.
There are a total of 6 main bow tie styles to choose from each one with a unique look. The butterfly bow tie is the most popular and the one we use the most because of its versatility. Another favorite of ours is the diamond point bow tie that is a great way to add some edge to the tradition. How about bringing back the outlaw style with ribbon tie if your up to it.
