Bowtie 101

So I was feeling inspired about a Bowtie tutorial by two of my friends from last weekend's gameday! Not only do the girls dress up, but a lot of the boys will wear polos or button-downs with bowties! These are two of my favorite guy friends who happen to be roommates and in the same fraternity. In my facebook album of the game, I put as the caption "Michael's basically Lucky Levinson". Lucky Levinson owns one of the best men's stores in Columbia but also happens to have the #1 video on YouTube about how to tie a bowtie:

Funny story with this video though! For the first day of junior year in my high school if you have a teacher, Mr. Z, you learn how to tie a bowtie! If the entire class learns how to do it by the end of the period, you get a 100% quiz grade for the day. The class is allowed to learn how to do it by any means possible. Our class decided to YouTube it, and at this point, I had no idea who Lucky Levinson was or what Britton's (his store) was because I was still in Maryland! We all learned how to tie a bowtie thanks to Lucky and now I've even seen the store! Talk about full circle! (Fun Fact: the closest Lilly store is about 5 stores down from Britton's!)

You all know I absolutely love a good bowtie! It's a lot of power for a boy to wear!

Absolutely love men in bowties! I had to tie a bunch at last years homecoming because a lot of the pledges didn't know how!

Sure you saw lots today at the game! Actually I think tying a bow tie is much easier than tying a regular one!
