One of the reasons I like bowties is that they make you stand apart in a crowd. They take you from one in a crowd to an individual a leader. I used a handcrafted bow tie at my last job interview. When trying to decide what to wear I threw caution to the wind and decided to be myself and wore a hand made bow tie. Not only was this a great conversational piece in the interview but it showed I could think outside the box and was not afraid to take risks. It was a lasting first impression that got me the job and was all the talk of the company before I even started.
Now why not go out and make an impression yourself? Be a leader and look sharp!
