Wouldn’t it be a refreshing change to get him to wear a different one, to jazz it up a bit?
Ready made bow ties come in a wide selection of colors to suit any occasion. A formal black tie for the work dinner party, fun crazy Christmas patterned ones for the end of year and everything in between. But sew your own bow tie and the choice on style becomes pretty much endless.
