3. Dolce & Gabbana Patterned Wool & Silk Blend Bow Tie
In a two toned purple and a subtle pattern this tie goes well with a slim fit pair of jeans and a matching jacket.
4. Turnbull & Asser White Cotton Bow Tie
White bow ties are usually considered ultra formal, but wear with a pale blue shirt and a lightweight gray cardigan you can get away with it and make it your own.
5. Alexander McQueen Plaid Bow Tie
A plaid pattern is a great way to add an extra something to a look, it stands out and looks good. With the red color it goes back to Alexanders Scottish roots which he was always proud of. Wear with a white shirt and a pair of indigo slim fit jeans.
