    He really knows how to put together sophistication and elegance in a man. It definitely has a wow effect. I have never used a bowtie since I thought it was outdated -a fashion for lawyers or doctors from decades ago. But now I think different. I wonder where I can get similar bowties with organic patterns (instead of plain colors). Thanks.
