Brad Pitt: The Curious Case of Men in Bowties

These are some pictures from the premiere of Brad Pitt’s upcoming movie– The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I’m actually looking forward to seeing this movie. Brad is sporting a bow-tie to the premiere which is quickly becoming the number one choice for stars on the red carpet.

In the light you can clearly see the different color blacks that each guy has on. It’s important to try to match your blacks if possible. Usually it’s hard to tell the difference, but sometimes it’s quite obvious.

Tyrese Gibson, Taraji P. Henson, and Brad Pitt
Tyrese opted for an ascot and velvet jacket- it’s okay, but he should have worn a bow-tie:-)

Brad Pitt and David Beckham have both recently developed a love for 3 piece suits as well. I’ve been spotting them in 3 piece suits more than usual.

Vineyard Vine Ties

There’s a so many ties out there, many types, many brands, so only a few brands stand out and Vineyard Vines is one them. Vineyard Vines ties were a favorite to many of the wealthy old executives and rich preppy guys that I shopped for while I was at Nordstrom. When I first saw them they seemed cheesy, but after awhile they really grew on me. Now I feel like it’s good to have atleast one Vineyeard Vines tie in your wardrobe, some guys even collect them, but I don’t quite think that’s needed.
Vineyard Vine ties have little pictures on them, the pictures range from animals, to food, to hobbies, to college logos. They go for $75, but you may be able to find them on sale at major retail stores and online.

How Romantic: Velvet Bow-ties.

From John Legend to Scott Whitman to Jay-Z. It seems like velvet or velour bow-ties are the way to go. There’s only so much you can do with a tux, so it’s nice when gentleman find ways to make their tuxedo special. If you have any black tie events coming up, you should try wearing a velvet bow-tie.
