You can wear a wooden bow tie with any outfit you want, of course. But in our opinion, they work best with more casual outfits or a more formal look at an event without a strict dress code. A wooden bow tie looks great with a casual denim shirt and chinos, but will also add a stylish twist to your classic navy suit.
There are a few advantages wooden bow ties hold over the classic fabric version.
1. Easy to put on. Tying a bowtie is not for the impatient. No need to worry about that with a wooden butterfly tie. You just put the flexible strap around your collar, tighten it up, and you're good to go in about 48 seconds. You've never added a stylish touch to your outfit faster than that.
2. Stand out from the crowd. A wooden bowtie can give your outfit that little edge to stand out from the crowd, in a good way. We guarantee there won't be too many other guys sporting a classy wooden bowtie!
3. Stay stylish all night long. A regular bowtie can lose its shape throughout the day/night, especially at events that involve a bit of dancing or other activities. None of that with a wooden bowtie. It's guaranteed to keep its shape all night long, as long as you keep your neck away from any candles or fires.
Wooden bowties come in different shapes and colours, so don't forget to match them correctly! We believe they look best when there's some contrast with the shirt you're wearing, so if you've got a light shirt on, go for a darker shade of wood. Conversely, a lighter shade of wood will contrast better with a dark shirt, of course. Most wooden bowties also have a small fabric part in the middle, which should complement the other colours you are wearing.
Make sure you choose a bowtie that's appropriate to the size of your body. If you're a bigger guy, opt for a bigger bowtie and buy a smaller model if you're of smaller stature.
A wooden bowtie will stand out from your outfit no matter what. However, what you don't want it to do is to clash with your ensemble. You should, therefore, make sure that the rest of what you're wearing is in line with the style of the bowtie. If you fail to do this, it will just look out of place.
A well-crafted wooden bowtie will last you a long, long time if you take good care of it. A fashion investment that's well worth it!
