How thick should a bow tie be?

Does a bow tie go over the collar?
Does a bow tie go over the collar? Bow ties typically go under the collar of a dress shirt. It worked for 007 since 1962, and we’re not going to argue with Bond. Wearing a bow tie under the collar is especially important with pre-tied bow ties because the collar hides the adjustable buckle.

When should you not wear a bow tie?
Bow ties, in our opinion, should never be worn with anything other than a tuxedo – either a velvet jacket and some classic grosgrain trousers, a classic white-tie look (in which case you should only, rather obviously, wear a white tie) or, indeed, a classic black or midnight blue dress suit. And that’s it.
What does a bow tie say about a man?
What a Bow Tie Symbolizes. Bow ties are not just the realm of nerds, science guys, and James Bond anymore (though we’ll always remain fond of seeing him wear one). These days, they represent pure uncaged creativity, a confident willingness to be different, and an uncompromising embrace of style in daily life.
Do you need a special shirt for a bow tie?
The only rule that you must abide by, is to always wear a shirt with it of course, paying attention to the size of the collar in relation to the bowtie: neither too small, nor too large. And the bigger you are, the bigger the bowtie you’ll be able to pull off.
