Have you ever wished one of your favorite ties was a bow tie? Or maybe you just got a last minute invite to a black tie event…TONIGHT and (oh crap!) you don’t have a bow tie. What do you do?
Do what any good style hacker would do and improvise. With a little know-how you can turn a regular long tie into a suave bow tie. You’ll need two things:
- A plan (see below) and a few minutes to practice (nobody said being a style hacker was easy).
- A slim tie (the Black Lapel tie width is perfect for this hack).
Follow the steps below and you’ll be able to turn a long necktie into a stylish bow tie in minutes.
Show us your bow tie style hack for a chance to win a Black Lapel tie of your choice!
