TAKD Design has offered an entirely new take on the men's bow tie, turning it more into an object of art rather than a functional entity.
That being said, the bow tie is still intended for traditional use, although men will have to get used to wearing a piece of wood around their necks. The wood comes in a few different shades, and men can also change things up by using an alternative pattered fabric section for the tie too. Overall it will be interesting to see if these catch on, but my one concern is that people might not be comfortable with the wood material. However, as an object of design and artistic integrity, it does very well.
