The bow tie continues to make its way into 2014 as a recurring trend in menswear that isn’t going away anytime soon. Just this week at Paris Fashion Week, Maison F will preview their latest collection of bow ties and ascots for Fall 2014. The consensus in the industry seems to be that men’s fashion is on the uprise, with men gravitating towards more luxury brands, detailed embellishments and accessories, and a more elegant way of expressing themselves. I guess we can thank the likes of Kanye West, P. Diddy, Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke, to name a few who are in the limelight and leading the pack.
Here in the States the cleverly named, Beau Ties LTD, is certainly adorning a plethora of male necks from celebrities, business men, trendoids and college students. The handmade ties come in a slew of styles from Jumbo, Slim with a diamond point and very slim. Fabrics range from several variations of silk, cotton and even flannel. You can even send in shirts or neck ties, and have them converted into bow ties. Got a wedding to plan, Beau Ties will send you an inspiration board of suitable fabric swatches for you to get inspired on how to create the perfect look to complement the one your marrying. I predict this trend will be a huge business for future Gay Weddings.
The best part of Beau Ties, is the price. Prices range from $40 – $60. After I was introduced to the company, I showed it to a friend of mine who works at Bergdorf Goodman. He was not only impressed with the fabrics and unlimited choices, but he also stated that if these ties were sold at his store, they would be triple the price.
A few additional tidbits about Beau Ties LTD: You can order online, they also carry neck ties, pocket squares, both pre-made, and bow ties that you have to tie, accessories like fedoras, and a few products for women like scarves. Bow ties make great gifts, and you’ll keep that special someone looking classic and on trend at the same time.

My tip is to be creative with your Beau Ties, by choosing vibrant colors and patterns, while wearing them in non-traditional stylings. Try wearing them with patterned shirts and a pair of blue jeans. Add a pair of suspenders to complete your look.
