The Best Pop Culture Bow Ties You've Ever Seen


Now don't be like that.

Sure they might have been cornered by the stuffy academic and cosplaying Doctor crowds, but there's more to the bow tie than stereotypes. 

One label striving to overhaul of the oft maligned neck piece is Birties - internet purveyors of the dandiest bow ties we've ever seen. 

Handmade in the US from Kona cotton (it's good stuff), their range spans from video game classics to throat-bound fine art. Ridiculous and sublime, you can definitely pull one of these off. And no, you don't need to know how to tie a true bow tie knot - they use a cheating strap slide, in order to make sure their designs line up in the bow.

Prices start from around £17 and include international shipping. Here are some of our favourites.
