All In Knots: Types of Bow Ties (and How to Tie Them)

There are various ways to wear bow ties, but essentially three types of bow ties: self-tie, pre-tied, and clip-on. Without a doubt, self-tie bow ties are the most sophisticated of the three, as it takes a bit of skill to tie the perfect bow tie knot. And if you’ve never tied a bow tie before, check out this simple video that shows you how.

Next are the pre-tied bow ties, which as the name implies, is an easier version of the self-tie bow tie. While pre-tied bow ties aren’t as versatile as self-tie bow ties, they are more convenient. These are popular with men that want to wear a bow tie, but don’t have the time to tie one themselves.

Finally, the clip-on bow tie. This is the mall-cop of the bow tie world. It’s inexpensive, practical, and should always be a last resort. Clip-on bow ties are good for informal outings with friends or family, but in a professional setting, a clip-on bow tie simply won’t cut it.
