A super, super nice lady on the TV show I’ve been working on lately came up to me as I was waiting for a shot to start and went to adjust my tie. She said, “I don’t know that much about bow ties, but I know they’re not supposed to be crooked, right?”
On the contrary. If your bow tie isn’t crooked, you’re not tying it right. The best tie knots - the best bow tie knots, particularly - are expressive.
