The Cortez cotton, self-tie, batwing (or slim) bow tie in Canary or Grey is both sophisticated and casual no matter which shade you choose. Complete with anchors and polka dots, The Cortez can be worn on a cruise whether that's on a yacht or a three speed pedal bike or anything in between. Put it on with confidence, and prepare for pleasant reactions from your fellow humans from both Port and Starboard. This piece was handmade in New York in limited numbers by people you'd like, and goes especially well with collared shirts and engaging situations.
These are self-tie bow ties for the purist, however, they come tied and are adjustable for the non-Jedi. Of course, to mix it up you'll need to know/learn how to tie a bow tie. It's easy to learn (thank you YouTube), and worth the 15 minutes, given the number one question people ask bow tie wearers is... 'did you tie that yourself?'
