The Only "How to Tie a Bow Tie" Video You Need

Posted on December 26, 2013 by Snap Tailor

Whether you're dressing up for New Year's Eve, a wedding, or it's simply after six, you're going to need a bow tie to go with your tux.

Clip-on bow ties, while an amazing technological breakthrough, look too perfect and are easy to sniff out. The slight misalignment and different size of the left and right bows show that you are a gentleman who takes dressing well seriously. Plus, you'll be able to untie the bow tie at the end of the night and let it drape gloriously over your chest.

Of course, tying a bow tie is not something most guys have a lot of experience in. However, with a little practice, it becomes as automatic as tying a four-in-hand knot.

The best way to learn to tie a bow tie is to do it yourself, but with a little help. If you don't have a friend nearby who can help, a how-to video is the next best option.

The Snap Tailor staff has scoured the internet for the best how to tie a bow tie video, and this is it. It's a bit fast, so you may have to rewind it a few times. However, it's straight to the point and does a good job of showing you the key maneuvers.

What a Well-Dressed Man Should Wear on New Year's Eve

Posted on December 22, 2013 by Snap Tailor

New Year’s Eve is a time to dress up…or down. It’s up to you. But unless you’re going to a rave (or you live in Florida), there should be a suit involved.

Option 1: Break out That Tux

New Year’s Eve is as good a reason as any to break out your tuxedo, because damn, you look good in that thing. Here are some tips on how to wear a tuxedo from AskMen.com. 

Renting a tux isn’t as painful as it used to be, either. 

You can order any Snap Tailor shirt in tuxedo style. We recommend ordering this shirt. Then add a comment to your order with a link to an image of the type of tuxedo shirt you'd like (we like this design).

Option 2: Pair a Dark Suit and Tie with a Bold Dress Shirt

Option 3: Dress Down Your Suit with Jeans

If you want to dress your suit down a bit, ditch the slacks for dark jeans. Just make sure your shirt fits you perfectly and you tuck it in
