How to wear bowtie

0

In secolul al 17 lea, soldatii din arma croata obisnuiau sa-si lege in jurul gatului o esarfa pentru a tine legatura gulerului de la unifroma si astfel sa se protejeze de vant sau de ploaie. Mai tarziu, nobilimea franceza a optat pentru aceasta practica deoarece regele francez gasea acest accesoriu incantator.

Asa ca, pana in secolul al 18 lea, obiceiul de a lega o esarfa in jurul gatului era foarte raspandit, chiar si scriitorul Honore de Balzac a decis sa scrie o carte despre acest subiect.

In the 17th century the soldiers from the Croatian army used to tie up around their neck a scarf in order to keep up the uniform’s collar and thus to protect himself  from wind or rain. Later, the French nobility chosed this style due to the fact that the French king found this to be a delightful accessory.

Therefore, up to the 18th century, the habbit of tying up a scarf around the neck was widely spread, and even the writer Honore de Balzac decided to write a book about this topic.

Mai tarziu, s-a initiat un dress code pentru dineurile regale. Camasa alba si papionul sunt doua elemente specifice pentru vestimentatia presedintilor sau pentru cea a oamenilor din guvern. Iata cum Winston Churchill a trecut peste acest dress cod si a purtat un papion iesit din tipare, de culoare belumarin cu buline albe.

Later, it’s has been a dress code for the royal diners. The white shirt and the bow tie are two specific elements for the presidents or for the people from the government. Look how Winston Churcill has passed over this code and weared an unusual bow tie, blue with white dots.

Papionul, cum il port?

Asa cum probabil ati observat baieti, se poarta papionul de ceva vreme. Poate ca aveti cateva sechele de cand erati mici si mamele voastre va ”spanzurau” cu cate un papion, care avea la spate un elastic. Dar e timpul sa treceti peste acele amintiri deoarece papionul revine in forta pe zi ce trece.

Guys, you have probably noticed for a while the bow tie is fashionable. Maybe you have a few bad memories from when you were little and your mothers “hang” you with a bow tie which had an extensible in the back. But it’s time to get past over those memories because the bow tie strongly take over every day. A simple black bow tie never fails.

Pentru lookul formal: Un papion purtat la o nunta sau la o gala de caritate, este un accesoriu clasic cand te imbraci intr-un frac sau intr-un costum. Un simplu papion negru nu da gres niciodata in astfel de situatii.

For a formal look: A bow tie worn at a wedding or at a charity gala is a classic accessory when you are wearing a tail coat or a suit. A simple bow tie never fails in this situations.

In zilele noastre, barbatii pot sa poarte papion in afara acestor evenimente formale. Un papion purtat in situatii clasice denota incredere si stil. Incearca sa stai departe de papionul negru si opteaza pentru un papion colorat sau cu imprimeuri.

Nowadays, men can wear a bow tie outside these formal events. A bow tie worn in classic situations shows self confidence and style. Try to stay away from the black bow tie and choose the colored or paisley bow tie.

In urma unui studiu realizat in 2007 s-a constatat ca aproximativ 900 de americani considera ca barbatii care poarta papion sunt cei in varsta, si nu sunt doriti ca vecini, colegi sau mai ales prieteni. Insa e timpul sa trecem peste aceste conceptii invechite, deoarece in 2011 si baietii rai poarta papion(ca de exemplu Chris Brown, Pharell, sau Kanye West).

As follow up of a study made in 2007, it was concluded that aproximately 900 Americans consider that men wearing a bow tie are the elder ones and they are not wanted as neighbours, coleagues or especially as friends. But it’s time to pass over these old mentalities because in 2011 even the bad boys are wearing a bow tie (for example Chris Brown, Pharell, or Kanye West)
