  1. Bow tie wearing can be a notable characteristic for an individual. Men clothier Jack Freedman told The New York Times that wearing a bow tie “is a statement maker” that identifies a person as an individual because it’s not generally in fashion

  2. I love this site and the Boston U. story. My dad, a country doctor, always styled bowties, excellent blazers and tweed jackets, custom shirts from The Custom House in London, and sometimes three piece suits. I mean he went to WORK like that! He was a tall, think man, and I always believed that the bowtie drew people’s gaze up there 6 feet four inches high, to his face and made his bigness somehow friendlier for his patients. LOVE the site, love the bowties.

  3. I’m a BU grad and frequent public speaker. I love wearing a Bow Tie when I speak – and I always have loved it. Thanks for bringing the Bow Tie back… I also wear cuff links everyday – any plans to bring those back too?

  4. One more thing – hey Diego – you should have used the camera on the phone to actually project the image of your neck and shirt so the bow ties actually “look” like they’re on your neck if you’re looking in a mirror…
    Or did you try that already…?
    – Drew
