New Year's Eve is one of the times when seeing a lot of bow ties on dudes isn't a signifier that you're at a douchey party, it's just the norm. With so many folks dressed to the nines, a knit tie is a good, breezy alternative to the legions of wool and silk ties out there. Plus, their softness gives girls a reason to touch you.
