What is a Bow Tie?
A bow tie is a type of necktie that can sometimes be worn by the groom or best men during weddings.
More modern bow ties are tied using a common shoelace knot.
A bow tie consists of a ribbon of fabric that is tied around the collar of a shirt in a symmetrical manner while the two opposite ends form loops.
- Traditionally white is the most formal bow tie color.
- Bright colored bow ties are most commonly used for day weddings.
- Those bow ties are normally matched with the same color handkerchief.
