Hats and bowties

Gem Hats 7 W

Back to some fine hats and large bowties

A youngish fellow, a boater, a bowler and a repeat grace this page with delightful details! Note the wonderfully large bowties on the top two gentlemen. They are almost absurd in their size. The ties must be a good 2″ wide to achieve such a dominating bow. While I’m not well versed in the history of neck ties, I do recall seeing these wide bowties on men from the 1840s and ’50s. They obviously made a comeback in the 1870s. The lower left fellow has a skinny bowtie that is almost an after thought when compared with the larger ones. His high crowned bowler compliments his round face nicely. Finally, our repeat image is the doppleganger mentioned a few posts back.

    I kinda wish hats were more popular.

      Me too. I’m happy to see the resurrection of good beards and mustaches, so perhaps hats will have a resurgence as well!
