Buckwheet saidI wore a bowtie with one of them sliding buckle doohickeys to two weddings; I didn't care for it. I'm replacing my tux with a western one partially because I detest most ties. I favor the official AZ tie, the bolo.
A gentleman would never wear a pre-tied bow tie. There are some self-ties that have adjustable neckbands, but that's so déclassé if you have a wing collar, and the neckband is visible.
I had an ex-BF who wore patent leather cowboy boots with his tuxedo, and wanted to wear a bolo until I forbade it. I told him he either wore a bow tie (which I had to tie for him) or I wouldn't be seen with him. I thought I was very liberal that I overlooked the boots, while I wore proper evening pumps. These cowboys are savages, but some do have lovely bodies, so a compromise is sometimes unavoidable.
You really are arrogant and pretentious--
You also like to drink--
You've bragged about it many times--

I love these pics you bring up here of me. (Though those are not my captions) I think I'm about 58 here. Still kinda holding my own. Le dèluge started to happen a year later.
And the only other RJ member who can resurrect 7-year-old pics of me is southbeach1500. Isn't that curious!
Another peculiarity of my cowboy-booted BF was that he would wear a cheap plastic sports watch with his tuxedo. Despite his being a multimillionaire, with homes from Paris to Scotland, and everywhere in between.
And I finally said that's enough, I won't be seen with you like this. And so I bought him a proper evening dress watch as a gift, that matched his other accessories. And I began to knot his ties for him, at which he was hopeless. The cowboy boots were off-limits.
Well, yah know, he was my guy, and I wanted people to respect him. And the selfish side of me also said this guy comes across like a pretender in rich clothes he doesn't know how to wear, like a kid at the high school prom in rental clothes, and makes me also look like a rube to be with him. So I had to clean his act up a bit, for both our sakes.
It wasn't easy, since he thought his money automatically bought him class. Sorta like Donald Trump, that pig I've met a few times at cocktail parties. But the difference is that my ex-BF is a nice guy at heart. I hope he someday finds another millionaire, since he always told me he could only have a lasting relationship with a guy as rich as he is. Which I was not.
