Afternoon neck-wear enthusiasts. It’s that time of year again when one approaches black tie for various reasons. As you’re aware its simply all about a self tie bow, right men? In this instance it is not for personal consumption, but for ‘The TV projects’ that get involved in. Did something yesterday and managed the knot below in my personal Hermes tie. Took a while and did it on my leg first. A couple of the TV awards bods were hanging about as I did it. One posh, messy haired and quite elegant/elongated young boy looked like just the sort who could handle a bow as he peered over my shoulder. Thought this could be embarrassing if flop in full view, so asked him about his bow credentials.

Sure enough it turns out he wore a bow-tie to school every day. Eton no less. Just what you need, The Tarquinator watching you work. Very interesting talking about school tie deployment rhetoric. They end up wearing white tie in the final year as prefects, and there’s something made of card known as an Eton tie. Might investigate what they look like. No wonder the fees are high- all that laundry every day. He did the Spencer Hart knot below actually on his neck and without a mirror. I pulled it tight mind-his was like one worn by Hawkwind initially. Regardless, bravo Robbie Black (as in tie), seems your education was not wasted, even if you have ended up working on blanket-culture-numbing TV award programs.

Only kidding TV people- of course it’s a valid and worthy medium. Moving on, am going out sourcing new offerings along these lines. Shall report in with visuals and comment on what I do discover. Anyone got anything they’d like to get off their chest on a bow front? I know you lot favour a lively debate, even you dozy bastards that went to Comprehensive.
