A classic retro old Skool Grey Checker Bow tie...adds a unique and inspirational slant to any sixties mod formal ensemble.
The Bow Tie whilst not particularly well known for it's significance in sixties mod culture, was for a time adopted as a must have unisex accessory, drawing on vintage 19th century dandy fashions for the new psycheldelic era.
The Bow Tie truly became a western phenomenon as early as the 17th century. A victorious and sharply dressed Croatian regiment visiting Paris in 1660 paraded their narrow, bright coloured scarves...and the look went down a storm. Immediately the style was adopted and the term 'cravat' was coined (based on the French word for Croat).
It wasn't just the sixties dandy that took to wearing bowties and cravats, but members of the fifties 'Rat pack' including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr.
In today's indie arena the Bow Tie has once again emerged as an iconic style accessory. This time it's the untied look with both ends hanging down that finishes off formal attire with a neat indie twist. It's the whole keeping things smart, but playing down formal for a more dishevlled indie vibe.
A fab retro vintage inspired accessory...Dare to wear one...Dare to be different! VALENTINO STRIPE - Vintage, Retro Bow Tie with thistle ends. Black with fab fifties/sixties intricate patterned Checker detail. Looks great tied or untied for more indie styled attire.
