Go Bolo Not Yolo
POSTED ON : Wednesday, 15 May 2013
The bolo tie has origins in the American West - yea these folks are too darn rugged for neckties, bowties or cravats. I love how it has a certain rustic charm that's not too overpowering at the same time. It really is a simple accessory that brings the whole look together when worn right, don't you think?
One of the reasons why I am so intrigued by the bolo tie is the room for creativity they offer as an embellishment. Just look at the different variations of pulling it off.. Pair it with a suit for a classy look with an old Western twist or pull the clasp lower down the chest for a casual laid-back vibe. Just hanging it around your neck regardless of what you wear already makes it more town-appropriate. I kid.
That said, these aren't very commonly seen around in Singapore yet. The only one I managed to find is this Texan bull's design that I'm wearing below. Reckon it will go well with denim. I know there isn't much to see from this picture but I promise you this ain't the last you see of me with a bolo tie. BOLO~
