Bow ties...in a long tie world 
 
Long ties are an esthetically pleasing safe bet for most men. 
However, those in the know say they have lost their practical purpose...protecting dress shirts! Really? Bibs?
The WSJ reports long ties are considered a health risk since cleaning and disinfecting is rare harmful bacteria collect and multiply on the exposed surface.   
The problem is not as much food, spit or mucus, but fingertips constantly tightening and loosening the slip knot as well as the futile attempts at keeping expensive silk out of harms way!
 
Bow ties, conversely, utilize a stable double-knot that never gets in the way. Self-tied, right-sized bow ties are not just a fashion option or healthy habit, but a  personal statement of well educated, discerning,  individualists comfortable in his own skin!
