    Their outlet was open from about 11/10 to just before Thanksgiving I think. That's the only "sale" they've ever run, I think. If only I had bought more...

    I'm going to purchase a bow tie for an event, and as I have very few times I might ever need it, I'm just going cheap with Tie Bar. What's the difference between a "self-tie" and "pre-tied"? Would the pre-tied be noticeable? Is it like a clip on? On the other hand... is it really that hard to tie a bow tie that they need to offer this pre-tied option?

    Self-tied, unsurprisingly, means you have to tie the knot yourself. Both clip-on and pre-tied have the knot already in place. Clip-on literally has a clip that you attach where your collar opening is; pre-tied has a strap that loops around your collar and then hooks into the knot area.

    That wasn't very articulate, so this.

    Thanks! That picture reminded me that bow ties look great untied. I think I'll give it a try.

    Sounds like you've already decided, but just to answer one of your questions: bow ties aren't that hard to tie. Takes a little practice to get a good knot, just like for regular ties, but it's not substantially harder.

    I bought one stupid suit and it's my favorite.
