How to Pull Off a Bow Tie

October 27, 2010

You’ve probably heard that bow ties are back. But if you’re like a lot of guys, you don’t know how to make them work for you. Here, Swizz Beatz—one of hip-hop’s all-time great hitmakers and the new Mr. Alicia Keys—shows how it’s done

As far as we can tell, Swizz Beatz doesn’t just roll out of bed looking this ridiculously sharp. We’d like to think it has something to do with that candy-striped bow tie yoked around his neck—and all the other ones in the following slide show. Not that we can specify exactly why the tie looks so right. But we suspect it’s similar to a few years back when guys started wearing cardigans again, and seersucker and tie bars: Instead of looking all old-school, they looked thoroughly right-now. And so here we have Mr. Beatz, hip-hop’s producer of the moment (Jay-Z’s “On to the Next One,” Drake’s “Fancy,” etc., etc.), sporting slim bow ties by our favorite labels of the moment (Billy Reid, Band of Outsiders, Rag & Bone, et al.). And all we can think is, Of course.
