Hold the Phone—It’s Possible to Turn a Regular Necktie into a Bow Tie

Before you ask why on earth someone would want to turn a regular necktie into a bowtie, you should know the following: There is no good reason. There are also infinite good reasons.

Both truths can be true. Light is both a particle and a wave. As Fitzgerald said, “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.”

But back to the “why.” Did you spill some wine on your tie and want to hide the stain for the rest of the night? Perhaps you showed up wearing a piano keyboard necktie to a black tie event. Maybe you’re the type of guy who likes effectively doubling his tie collection by learning a few simple maneuvers? And maybe you’re just a great lover of face-meltingly awesome style hacks.

Regardless of your reason, Phil Wade’s style alone should entice you to do as he says. Note: Do try this at home but don’t try it while wearing shades.

Hat tip to LifeHacker for bringing this wisdom to our attention.

This gentleman also shows off a different method for achieving a similar effect, basically crafting perfect little clip on bowties.

Regardless of how you tie yours on, you should know a thing or two about how rock a bowtie so it fits in with the rest of your outfit.
