We recently traveled to New Orleans to photograph a wedding. Much to my delight, many of the men in attendance were wearing beautiful colorful bow ties. I’m of the opinion that men don’t dress up nearly as much as they should. I cannot tell you how many times I see women dressed in a gorgeous outfit and their male companions can barely muster a pearl snap button down, a pair of jeans and flip flops. Now, let me be perfectly clear: I live in Austin, Texas so casual is the new black. Frankly, I enjoy this mindset. It’s always OK to wear jeans. There is not one fancy restaurant in town that would turn you away for wearing them. I’m just saying that every once in awhile it would be nice if some of the fellas in this town would put on something a little more dressed up. It’s not a mystery that women like this too.
That’s all, don’t throw blog stones at me.
Anyway, I digress….here is a sampling of the gorgeous bow ties I saw at the wedding:
