I wouldn't brag. I bet you couldn't do a real bow tie up. That's some difficult shit, that is.

Jealousy isn't pretty.

A man in my position always needs a handy stock of bow ties. Just in case.

You can't do a bow tie up. I remember when you were in the bow tie department in Marks and Spencers and there was a proper Bow Tie Advanced there and I told you to get it and you looked scared and went to the Bow Tie Junior bit and got one that was all ready tied. That's really babyish. If you were really any good at bow ties you'd go out with your proper bow tie on and then come home after closing some pretty serious deals, and making your company several thousand k, with it all undone, just hanging round your neck, like what sexy spies do.

I do actually have a bow tie and even a cummerbund. They're navy blue silk and were a 21st gift. Took me ages to learn to tie it.

If you need a hand sam, I can do you up.

You can get them with press studs though, can't you? Nobody will know any different.

Aw, A bow tie can look dead good!

My art history professor wears one. Or maybe he just wears ties but I WISH that he wore bow ties. I can't remember!

I couldn't tie one though, I can't even do ties.

i have picked up a couple of bow ties in the charities, nice silk ones, for cheap. Haven't had the cause to wear one though.

there was an article recently that said, wearing a bow tie says a lot about you, intelligent, witty, articulate, funny, smart, but the drawback is whilst you're wearing one, you're not going to be getting any sexyfun.

Fucking hell. Was I drunk when I started this thread?

I'll be wearing a bow tie again a week on Thursday. Amend your diaries.

My mom said to me,
"You wear bowties, don't you?"
I was thinking, "Huh??? If I wore bowties, wouldn't it be obvious to everyone?"
