Bowties are Cool

Bowties are popular. Well, kind of. And right now so are “geek chic” and nerd culture. But what we wear has a history; it says something about who we are or want to be. Through the knot of bow ties, Bobby Wesley will tie together the history and roles of fashion, identity formation, popular culture, hipsters, and nerds. Wesley is a writer, marketing professional, and storyteller.
