DIY Bow Tie for Bow Tie Friday

Inspired by fellow men’s style blogger and bow tie enthusiast Buffalo Dandy, I made a bow tie to commemorate my first Bow Tie Friday. The pattern was pretty straight forward and I used fabric that I happend to have. For my first go at it, I’m pretty pleased with the results. Paired with my Coca-Cola sweater (I was inspired by D&G) from Target ($7 on clearance), this bow tie is the perfect escort into an amazing weekend.

Go forth and dress well.

Pattern and instructions can be found here. A word of cautious, I have a small neck and this fits me perfectly so you may need to adjust accordingly.
