Malford of London Introduces their Tartan Bow Tie Collection
Nothing speaks more of the debonair gentleman than the bow tie. From Winston Churchill to Frank Sinatra, Manolo Blahnik to Doctor Who, the bow tie has been worn by a vast array of sophisticated characters, sometimes stylishly and sometimes in a more quirky manner. Architects, politicians, inventors and celebrity personalities alike have all sported this eye-catching neckwear, marking its territory in history and fashion for centuries to come.
The individual can use a bow tie to highlight his personal style, but there are a few rules that must be applied to ensure it is a success and not a faux pas. The first rule is perhaps the most obvious: quality. A cheap and cheerful bow tie belongs in a circus and is usually accompanied by a water-spurting flower and electrified hand-shake. Buy a high quality product and you will be able to wear it with your head held high, which brings us to the next rule. To successfully wear a bow tie you must exude confidence, so shoulders back, stand tall and present your style with a 007 smile. The final rule of this delightful accessory is co-ordination. While some can get away with a mix-matched array of patterns and styles, in general it only causes headaches. Make the tie the focus of the ensemble, with complimentary colours and styles.
Naturally, Malford of London’s bow tie collection conforms to all these rules. The Duchamp Wool Tartan Bow Tie is Handmade In England. You can sport this eye-catching accessory with pride, knowing that it is a fine example of English craftsmanship. Duchamp has been a well-known name in British Fashion for nearly a quarter of a century and prides itself on the quality of its products. Each tie is made of 100% wool, boxed and comes in a choice of 3 beautiful tartan designs. It would be an ideal gift for the confident gentleman, or simply as that all essential touch of flair that every outfit needs.
