According to David Colman writing in today's New York Times , there is something of a "bow tie resurrection" going on in the world of fashion these days, especially "if you’re young and not fainthearted."
According to Colman, "Only a few years ago it was all but left for dead; men were ditching it even as part of a tuxedo." But now the bow tie is "hot, hot, hot." indeed, he asserts, "For gents, the bowtie is the neckwear of choice." Just goes to show you: even broken clocks are right twice a day.
