We've had a lot of questions recently about how to tie the perfect bow tie. There's a tip we tell everyone (right after showing them in person, via FaceTime and even Skype!) about getting it just right: PRACTICE. Sounds simple, we know, but to nail that shape, that balance and that volume to fit your frame, it's just the ticket to rocking a style to top off your look. Plus it will feel next level amazing when they all come to you for advice.
