Premium Quality Bowties for Men

Premium Quality Bowties for Men

Looking for an opportunity to release your inner Frank Sinatra? Then it is about time to invest in a bowtie.

Bowties, if you don’t already know, convey an unparalleled level of sophistication and gracefulness. They are THE accessory for men who are adventurous and aren’t afraid to venture out of the norms or set themselves apart from the pack.

Men who wear bowties, or bowtie men, are the type who are not afraid to stir the pot. Have you ever been to a formal event and you noticed that the men with bowties were the ones who were surrounded by nearly all the guests at the party?

They had the best dance moves, had the cleverest jokes, and their outfits and colour combinations were the best out of everyone in attendance. Why? Because of the bowties.

But how did bowties even become a thing?

Apparently, the bowtie dates back to 1600s Croatia. Croatian expats in France would use scarf-looking fabric to connect the collars of their shirts. They called them cravats.

Quickly enough, they assimilated and found themselves amongst the elite class of the French patriarchy, which also happened to be responsible for the fashion trends of the era. Cravats became bowties, then eventually neckties.

In the 20th century, bowties quickly became an essential part of full men’s attire. It became popular amongst physicians and other intellectuals. The trend began to slow down around the mid-1940s but is still considered a highly necessary part of formal attire for men.

Fast-forward to today in 2020? Bowties don’t even only have to be a part of a formal outfit anymore. They can be worn any time you please nowadays and can be integrated into any combination imaginable.

There is a wide variety of premium and quality bowties to choose from here at Cuffed.com.au. Let’s dive in! 

1. Light Wood Cork Adult Bow Tie

Who said maple wood is only good for breakfast syrup? This beautiful three-dimensional wooden bowtie is very pleasing to the human eye.

The cork in the middle is definitely unlike any typical bowtie, but it is eccentric and surely could be a new trend in the future. Skip the black bowtie and go with this aesthetically pleasing light maple wood bowtie.

Be adventurous. Try something new. 

2. Dark Wood Black Fabric Adult Bow Tie

3. Zebra Wood Check Adult Bowtie

This is the bowtie you go with when you’re trying to impress everyone at the party and eventually court the president of the organization’s daughter.

Every now and then, it is ok to venture outside of your typical colours for bowties. Wear something that makes you stand out and become the life of the party. Drinks might come in handy, but more often than not, it will be the bowtie. 

4. Dark Wood Moustache Denim Adult Bow Tie

If you have been paying attention to the trends in contemporary society, you may have noticed that fashion trends that you may have seen in old mid-20th century films have slowly been resurfacing back into the mainstream in the 21st century.

This is a phenomenon called the “time pendulum” in which certain trends make their way back despite moving on from them in the past.

Hipsters are slowly bringing back the handlebar moustache, and Cuffed.com.au is slowly bringing the handlebar moustache shaped bowtie back into effect.

The denim fabric band in the middle makes for a stylish and tantalizing contrast that will catch the eyes of many. The time pendulum is swinging back towards the moustache so you might as well hop on this trend train while it’s still here!

The history of the watch winder dates back to close to the end of the 18th century. Don’t stop reading just yet! This history is interesting.

The first watch winder was created by a man by the name of John Hardwood. It originally held 12 watches. Wow! Many jewellery shops saw this, and it quickly became a trend to have in commercial stores.

Years later, they hit the mainstream and fulfilled the wishes and deepest desires of watch collectors everywhere.

Men wearing watches isn’t as popular as was in years prior. Especially the classic analog watches with gears and hands. Watch wearing has become a lost art.
