Velour Bow Ties

14/02/2011

Please don’t judge me, but one of my favorite shows of all time is The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The focus is mostly on the housewives, of course, but one of the most memorable scenes for me this past season is of none other than Peter Thomas’ bow tie from his wedding (pictured above). This picture, taken from Esscence magazine, was the best that I could find, but you can see it up close and personal from Bravotv.com right here at 0:01. I was unsuccessful in being able to locate where he bought the bow tie, but Tom Ford made a similar version in his F/W 2009 collection that you can see here. I love the look and feel of velour for dressy occasions in the winter time as they add an instant luxuriousness and sophistication. The brown is a nice color, as is a royal blue or a maroon, for easy pairings to formal affairs, dressy gatherings, and hip outings.

    Hi there! I actually have no idea where Peter got his tie. The closest I’ve been able to find is one made by Gucci (see post), but since it was from last year, I don’t think they will sell it anymore. My advice would be to google “velvet bow ties” and see if you can find any sellers that way. Good luck!
