Not long ago a reader of the blog, who also happens to be the owner of Le Noeud Papillon, sent me a bow tie in gratitude of the blog, which I found to be very nice and rewarding! For me, it’s simply enough that people actually keep coming back to read more, let alone receive a gift for it, but nevertheless, here we are. As most of you may know, I do like a nice bow tie and when receiving this one, I was quite pleasantly surprised. I don’t say this because I was expecting the worst, but because the tie was a lot cooler than I had imagined. The quality of it was really good (even though I am no expert on cloths) and I loved the way in which it knotted up. Certain bow ties can look a bit too stiff looking, a bit too pre-done, but the way in which this ties, makes it look very casual and relaxed. I liked that because I like to wear my bow ties on outfits that are a bit more casual than dressy. It was a lovely gift and I hope to get a lot of use out of it! To reader that sent it to me, thank you. And to everyone else, if you like a nice bow tie, may I recommend checking them out.
