A Bus and a Red Bow-tie

Man’s best friend?  

Bow ties?! Yes, I say bow ties!

Recently I made my first atempt to pull of wearing a bowtie.  Having never even worn one before i was a little anxious not to be awkward about my latest addition to my attire.

I was on a trip to DC. Being from Indiana that means a VERY long drive. So early on in the trip I decided I would meet the people around me to make the trip less tiresome.

Feeling a more then a bit more then nervous, I started with the young lady sitting behind me.

“Hi!” I said.  “My name is Murphy.”

“Hello, Murphy, my name is Emily.  By the way, I really like your bow tie!”  She replied.

i instantly know i’d made the right choice.


I am now ,just a couple weeks later on, in some of the most interesting  friendships with the people on that bus.

Especially with Emily, who broke the ice and helped me appreciate the wonders of standing out.

Here are a couple reasons to wear a bow tie:
 1. Bow ties scream confidence and individuality. They attract attention! even if people don’t remember your name, they’ll remember your neckwear.
 2. You’ll join famous bow tie wearers like Winston Churchill, James Bond, Fred Astaire, Steve Jobs, and many others.


Should you decide the try this classic neckwear, pair it with simple shirts and pants—the bow tie will take care of the loudness, even with a simple pattern. Be ready for compliments…from both sexes.
