These two new stripes are special in their simplicity. A stripe conveys a message of accomplishment and ability like no other patterned bow tie. You see a well-dressed gentleman in a striped bow tie and you immediately see a professional in a position of power. The smart looking stripe helps to establish credibility in the wearer. Of course, the striped bow tie is only one part of the outfit. To truly pull it off you need a crisp pinpoint, freshly polished shoes, nicely groomed appearance and a well-tailored suit, but the bow tie is at the center of this powerful combination.
