The diamond point bow tie has been around for years, and its recent resurgence has been welcomed with open arms. This is the bow tie you can wear to just about any occasion and feel like a million bucks. The silhouette of the bow tie has a more modern feel and it’s narrower profile looks sleek and refined. Pair that with a double-sided pattern, and you have a bow tie that can be tied numerous ways. Every time you tie one it will be just a little different, and that’s what makes them so versatile. Now let’s take a look at some of the different ways to tie one on and then browse our collection of diamond point bow ties.
The Sneak Peek
You want to make a statement but keep it low-key. Understated and subtle, tie the bow tie with the plain side showing. A little of the opposite side will show, but that’s the attention grabber.
Business on the sides, party in the middle. Don’t be surprised if you see people doing a double-take. Tie the bow tie as you normally would, but as you bring the back of the bow tie over the front, give it a twist to show the patterned side. It takes some tweaking to get the middle wrap to lay just right, but once you have it in place you’ll feel like a champion.
The Reverse Splitter
You’re on a mission and you want to stand out from the crowd. Same concept as the splitter. To tie this one you need to start with the bow tie flipped. The label will be facing out, but your collar will cover it up. Give the wrap a twist as you bring it over the front of the bow tie to show the solid side.
You don’t run with the pack, you lead the pack. Don’t settle for status quo. Be bold and be confident. Tie this one by flipping the bow tie and wrap without a twist. Straight up, no twist. Now put your shoulders back, stand tall, and prepare yourself for compliments.
